The article focuses on a study by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) LLP, which found that following five years of steady increases, pay rises for non-executive directors in FTSE 100 organizations are coming to an end. It is noted that as companies try to keep pay rises for executives and non-executives more in line, base pay for non-executive director roles are beginning to plateau.
