Sustainable Reset: The Role of NRC in a Post-Pandemic World

Prashant Chadha, Mary Chua & Sivaramakrishnan Balasubramanian

Boards that operate as a strategic asset to the organisation strive towards achieving an appropriate balance between focussing to perform (oversee today’s business) and transform (anticipate & shape the future). The Nomination and Remuneration Committee (NRC) plays a significant role in reviewing nomination, selection, compensation, and succession of the board and key management positions, determining competency criteria and compensation packages for such appointments. This programme focusses on strengthening NRC capabilities, specifically on talent management and succession planning at both board and critical management positions.

  • Identify the key challenges and expectations of the Nomination & Remuneration Committee
