Title

: Reward systems - a study of public companies’ variable compensation system

Background:

Our interest of the variable compensation system in public companies was brought by the recent extensive discussions of bonuses in the time of a financial crisis. This has led to that the word bonus has been given a negative connotation and we wanted to find out how the system of variable compensation is structured in the companies at Stockholm Stock Exchange.

Problem:

How is the variable compensation system structured in public companies?

Purpose:

The purpose of this paper is to study how the variable compensation in public companies is structured.

Method:

We use a quantitative method because the annual reports of all companies on the Stockholm Stock Exchange's Large, Mid and Small Cap lists are studied. We begin with hypotheses and various sub-questions to finally be able to answer our main question.

Result:

Among the companies we have studied there are several differences. In most companies the CEO and other executives receiving some type of variable pay. The variable compensation is usually based on performance and / or a combination of two or more underlying factors. The most common way of receiving the bonus is usually not specified.
