ABSTRACT
The article proposes that compensation packages of management should be remade to reflect long-term commitments. It stresses that compensation should not be tied to limited time performance but rather to longer periods of productive service. Furthermore, it suggests the evaluation of metrics used in determining compensation and tie it to net gains rather than stock prices.
