THE greatest challenge facing non-executive directors is regulation, according to a survey of more than a hundred board members from FTSE 350 firms. When polled on the most common tests they face, the majority of non-execs cited regulatory requirements as both their biggest challenge and the one that most hinders their role, with a greater time-commitment required as a result. The report, carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers, also showed that non-execs are concerned about matching shareholder expectations on remuneration. Over half of respondents said that shareholder committees were too concerned with “box-ticking”, and that their expectations were overly shaped by the media. Despite the negative responses, 63 per cent of non-execs polled said their role was becoming more attractive, and that fee levels were back at 2008 standards. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.
