Fortune (January 4)

“By the end of the first three working days of the year, the U.K.’s top bosses will each have earned on average as much as a typical worker will take home in all of 2018, according to a report. While the difference in compensation appears stark, it narrowed slightly compared with the previous year.” Studies show “earnings for CEOs in the U.K.’s benchmark FTSE 100 dropped by a fifth in 2016 to 4.5 million pounds ($5.4 million)” and that the CEO-to-worker pay ratio stood at around 120 to 1, much lower than the 347 to 1 of S&P 500 companies.

 

Financial Times (February 23)

In the UK, just 12.5% of FTSE 100 board positions are filled by women. Lord Davies is recommending the government take measures to double this figure by 2015. The measures will likely be non-binding, rather than the rigid quota systems adopted by Norway, France and Spain. The Financial Times urges companies to “take voluntary targets seriously,” calling on the chairmen of all-male boards to “explain in their annual report why they find this acceptable” and on investors to “press male, middle-aged boards.”
