At a glance

PwC’s US Human Resources Services practice examined these issues in its 2011 Reward and Talent Management Survey. PwC’s Human Resources Services practice brings together a broad range of professionals working in the human resources arena – retirement, health & welfare, total compensation, HR strategy and operations, regulatory compliance, workforce planning, talent management and global mobility – affording clients a tremendous breadth and depth of expertise, both locally and globally to effectively address the issues they face.

This summer, PwC conducted a webcast titled: “Highlights from the 2011 Asset Management Reward and Talent Management Survey.” During the webcast, PwC practitioners discussed general insight regarding headcount growth and talent-management trends, and deeper details surrounding a number of compensation issues including quantum and design, annual-incentive plans, deferred compensation and equity-based compensation, employee benefit plans, and issues related to governance and the regulatory environment.

More than 300 asset management executives and human resources professionals participated in the webcast, and added to the dialogue through responses to a real-time online survey that probed important issues. This paper presents the key findings from the 2011 survey, highlights from the webcast dialogue, and detailed responses to the webcast participant survey.
