Press release Summary What this report finds: This report looks at trends in CEO compensation using two measures of compensation. The first measure includes stock options realized in addition to salary, bonuses, restricted stock grants, and long-term incentive payouts.
While the CEO-to-worker compensation ratio of to-1 is down from to-1 in and to-1 init is still light years beyond the to-1 ratio in and the to-1 ratio in The average CEO in a large firm now earns 5. This measure tracks the value of stock options granted, reflecting the value of the options at the time they are granted.
By either measure CEO compensation is very high relative to the compensation of a typical worker or even that of an earner in the top 0. The explanation for the falloff in CEO compensation associated with realized stock options is unclear: It will be interesting to see if this trend continues.
Exorbitant CEO pay means that the fruits of economic growth are not going to ordinary workers, since the higher CEO pay does not reflect correspondingly higher output. CEO compensation has risen by or percent depending on how it is measured—using stock options granted or stock options realized, respectively from to At percent, that rise is more than 70 percent faster than the rise in the stock market; both measures are substantially greater than the painfully slow How we can solve the problem: Over the last several decades CEO pay has grown a lot faster than profits, than the pay of the top 0.
This means that CEOs are getting more because of their power to set pay, not because they are more productive or have special talent or have more education. If CEOs earned less or were taxed more, there would be no adverse impact on output or employment.
Policy solutions that would limit and reduce incentives for CEOs to extract economic concessions without hurting the economy include: Reinstate higher marginal income tax rates at the very top.
Remove the tax break for executive performance pay. Set corporate tax rates higher for firms that have higher ratios of CEO-to-worker compensation.
They also earn far more than the typical worker and their pay has grown much faster. The CEO-to-worker pay ratio dropped to to-1 by in the wake of the financial crisis, rose to to-1 byand has declined since The projected ratio is to It is unclear whether this recent decline is the beginning of a downward trend in how CEO compensation is awarded or whether it is a byproduct of how compensation is measured in conjunction with variations in the stock market more on this below.
What is clear, though, is that CEO pay continues to be dramatically higher now than it was in the decades before the turn of the millennium: This report is part of an ongoing series of annual reports monitoring trends in CEO compensation.
To analyze current trends in CEO compensation, we use two different measures of compensation. This measure tracks the value of stock options granted, thus focusing on their value at the time they are granted rather than when they are cashed in. As noted above, by one measure the measure that uses stock options realizedaverage CEO compensation fell in by 4.
However, compensation measured this way in fact declined only for those CEOs in the top-earning fifth of CEOs; pay for CEOs in the bottom 80 percent actually rose, with the declines for the top fifth of CEOs driving the decline in the average.
By another measure the measure that uses stock options grantedCEO compensation rose 3. CEO pay has historically been closely associated with the health of the stock market.
Amid a healthy recovery on Wall Street following the Great Recession, CEOs enjoyed outsized income gains even relative to other very-high-wage earners.Most innovative compensation technology backed by the most experienced team in the industry.
