This article reports on a Hewitt Associates survey of executive compensation in U.S. corporations as of November 1991. Perquisites are taking a back seat as greater portions of executive compensation are being placed at risk in the form of incentive arrangements. Perquisites also have become less lavish and more practical, the most common being physical examinations, company cars, club memberships and financial counseling services, although in the last five years even these near compulsory perquisites have thinned out.
