The NCEO's 2016 Corporate Governance Survey covers a wide range of governance issues including board composition, director terms, expected changes to the board, the role of ESOP participants in governance, the characteristics of the ESOP trustee, and trustee and director compensation. You can view a copy of the questionnaire here (PDF). Members can download a free summary of the results (member login required).

The survey was open November 2015 through March 2016 and collected a total of 309 valid responses from a diverse set of ESOP companies. The full report is a PDF of a 111-slide PowerPoint presentation including graphs for each of the questions included in the survey; a comparison of the demographic characteristics of the respondents compared to the universe of ESOPs overall; and an appendix reporting all questions by key demographic groups. You will be emailed the PDF within one business day after you place your order. See the sample pages below (click to enlarge):
