Human Resources Committee


The Human Resources Committee provides oversight of the human resources and talent management strategy and the design of Finning’s compensation programs and policies. The Committee provides recommendations to the Board of Directors on key compensation and human resources matters, including executive and key employee continuity and succession planning, and any changes to Finning’s executive compensation program that the Committee considers to be necessary from time to time.

Advisors to the Committee and Finning

In making its decisions relating to compensation, the Committee may obtain advice from consultants with expertise in this area. The Committee and Board consider the advice received from consultants and ultimately, make their own decisions about these matters. Meridian Compensation Partners acts as the independent advisor for the Board and the Committee for matters relating to director and executive compensation. In 2018, Meridian conducted an independent review of executive compensation and governance practices. They concluded that Finning’s compensation framework and governance practices are strong and also provided input on a new compensation peer group for both executives and directors. Furthermore, Meridian met with the committee to discuss a variety of key compensation topics, including executive and director compensation trends, long-term incentive trends and regulatory updates. The breakdown of services provided by the Advisors to the Committee and Finning are explained in more detail in the 2019 Management Proxy Circular.
