As compensation professionals, all we can actively do is provide data and guidance with a blind eye. But, we can also be a reminder of the opportunity each company has to fix this issue at any time they wish. There is no rule that says we must wait until next year. There is no reason that, with every new CEO hired or promoted, this situation can’t improve. Done with simple intent without upheaval this issue can be corrected over several years, and certainly less than a decade.
