On Sept. 18, 2013, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed regulations that following through on a mandate of the Dodd‐Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. These regulations would require companies to produce a median compensation figure for all employees — those in the United States as well as non‐U.S. employees — that would be disclosed as a ratio to CEO pay. The SEC issued a request for comment on the proposed regulations. The short WorldatWork survey was designed to help WorldatWork respond to questions from the SEC in the request for comment about the cost of determining the CEO pay ratio.
