ESGAUGE’s Database of COVID-Related Incentive Plan Changes on the Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance

The Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance published today findings from the analysis of Russell 3000 changes to incentive plans that ESGAUGE has been tracking since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The post was authored by Matteo Tonello of The Conference Board and by Blair Jones and Greg Arnold of Semler Brossy Consulting Group, with whom ESGAUGE is collaborating.

From March 1 to October 9, 2020, 177 Russell 3000 companies announced structural changes to their in-flight and/or go-forward incentive plans. An additional 43 Russell 3000 companies disclosed only payout suspension, adjustments, or deferrals for a recently completed compensation program; these companies are excluded from the analysis of structural changes.
