Read the CIPD's submission to the BIS Committee Inquiry on corporate governance
On 16 September 2016, the House of Commons’ Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee opened its inquiry into corporate governance. The focus of the inquiry was on executive pay, directors’ duties and the composition of boardrooms, including worker representation and gender balance in executive positions.
The inquiry was launched because of the high-profile failings highlighted by the Committee’s recent inquiries into BHS and Sports Direct, and in the wake of commitments from the Prime Minister to overhaul corporate governance.
