Executive Compensation Survey Practices

A Survey Brief by WorldatWork and Global Equity Organization (GEO)


WorldatWork and Global Equity Organization (GEO) jointly fielded a survey to their respective member ships on the topic of executive compensation surveys. A survey link was sent via e-mail to a random sample of 2,234 WorldatWork members and to 1,406 GEO members who are specifically responsible for leading equity programs for their respective companies.

Survey Results

Between these two populations, a total of 275 respondents participated in the survey. A list of participating organizations can be found in the Appendix. The respondent data was manually cleaned to eliminate duplicate organizations, e.g., when a member of WorldatWork and GEO from the same office responded. Any duplicates left in the participant list reflect offices in different countries or regions (e.g., Ford Motor U.S. and Ford Motor Europe).

The data for several open-ended questions was also manually coded to distill themes and common responses where they existed.
