A survey has revealed that while non-executives believe their pay has failed to keep pace, they are increasingly involved in areas of business that could potentially undermine their independence.
Non-executive directors (NEDs) say their independence is secure, despite growing pressure to increase their level of commitment, according to a survey. Non-executives also revealed they believe they are being underpaid for their time.
The research comes from consultancy Advanced Boardroom Excellence, which questioned NEDs across a range of subjects including independence, remuneration and time commitment.
The report asks if non-executives can remain independent while involvement with their company grows.
