Few of a trustee’s responsibilities are more controversial and challenging than setting pay. Rosie Chapman and Anne Cummins give their views on the duties of the remunerations committee.
While the UK’s charities are by and large being more transparent about pay, the article in today’s Sun proves that the issue isn’t going to just go away, says Rosie Chapman.
The sector’s code of good governance is no longer fit for purpose for large and complex charities and ought to be updated by its authors, according to CFG trustee and former Charity Commission policy chief Rosie Chapman.
Rosie Chapman compares the recommendations of NCVO’s senior executive pay inquiry with practice in other sectors.
Charities with an income of above £500,000 should consider publicising remuneration ratios between their highest and median salaries to give an indication of pay throughout their organisation, an NCVO inquiry into executive pay has recommended.
Charities should do more to embrace and showcase their broader social responsibilities, says Rosie Chapman.
