On November 9, 2016, the shareholders of Australia’s largest organization and the tenth largest bank in the world were lifted. The shareholders of the Commonwealth Bank responded to the annual remuneration report of the Management Board, which contained a suggestion that the CEO allowed a reward in view of the fact that the experts were regarded as “tender” measures.

Several companies have migrated in this way, including the combination of Wesfarmers with its 200,000 or more employees and the worldwide hospital administrator Ramsay Healthcare.

Should the CEO be evaluated only on “hard” measures? Should tender measures be a piece of a CEO scorecard? Is there a structure that can help you deal with the CEO evaluation task?

Presidents’ motifs were generally rated against target information – in addition, “hard”. Take, for example, the world’s largest mining organization through market capitalization, BHP Billiton. Its Compensation Committee uses a few key performance marks (KPIs) to control the payment of high-ranking officials. As reported in the Annual Report, these monetary measures, such as “derivable benefits, fundamental EBIT (earnings before premium and tax recovery), and aggregated shareholder returns (share and profits considered to be reinvested).”

What has increased all the more is the utilization of the nonfinancial but also the objective KPIs. For the situation of BHP, these accumulate up to recorded damage recidivities and ozone-degrading substance emanations.

In 2012, the Commonwealth Bank reorganized its assessment framework so that 75% of the CEO motivators emerged from the Bank’s aggregate shareholder return (TSR), resulting in a set association meeting and 25% of consumer loyalty. On 30 June 2016, on the basis of the moral embarrassments within the Bank’s additional security arm, the Bank’s Management Board took a further step towards adopting much more subjective measures on 30 June 2016, on the date when this honorary structure reached the end of its four-year period. In particular, in order to adjust the bank’s way of fulfilling its distinctive qualities, the Remuneration Committee and the Board of Directors have postponed a change in reward: TSR half, consumer loyalty 25% and individuals and group 25%. The last was concerned with “measure long distance progress in the zones of different qualities and consideration, support and culture.” Now a whole half of the estimate was subjective. This was a stage for a few shareholders, which in November 2016 accelerated their revolt.
