The Company Secretary Market Survey 2020: The Impact of Covid-19 & Remuneration

We are pleased to share our latest market report with you: The Company Secretary Market Survey 2020: The Impact of Covid-19 & Remuneration.  The focus of this year’s survey has been on the impact of Covid-19 and the governance market: from remuneration and job security to virtual meetings and recruitment.  Find out how your peer – over 700 Company Secretaries and Governance professionals – responded to key questions, such as:

  • Did your employer have a pandemic preparedness plan in place?
  • Do you think there will be more virtual Board and Committee meetings post-lockdown?
  • How has your remuneration been impacted as a direct result of the crisis?

Here’s a link to the full report:
