Doug Friske, Willis Tower Watson
Doug Friske will speak about why the world's leading organizations are increasingly focusing on employee experience (EX). The fundamental belief is that EX sits at the heart of delivering an exceptional customer experience and, in theory at least, superior financial performance. But to date, there has been a lack of robust definition of EX, or any reliable research to identify how it relates to organizational performance. Doug will share an evidence-based model of EX, which identifies the factors that matter the most; he will then establish whether EX is predictive of business performance.
Doug Friske is recognized as one of the leading global experts in executive compensation consulting today. He has worked with companies around the world to develop executive remuneration programs that align the interests of management and owners, and provide organizations with effective means of communicating values and objectives. Many of his assignments that have been in place for more than a decade involve ongoing advisory work with outside directors and senior management. Over the course of Doug’s career, he has addressed virtually all contemporary executive compensation issues including short- and long-term incentive plan design, employment contracts, change-in-control agreements, executive benefits, transaction-related pay, restructuring compensation issues and outside director pay.
Doug has worked with many multinational and Fortune 500 corporations. He also has significant experience with private organizations, non-U.S.-headquartered companies and business units within public companies. He currently serves as the named compensation consultant to the board and management at companies that span a wide range of industries and revenues.
He frequently speaks at conferences and presents on executive compensation matters, and he has published numerous articles on the topic. He is often quoted in general interest and human resources news articles in such publications as The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and The New York Times.
Doug currently serves as the Global Head of Willis Towers Watson’s Talent & Reward business, which includes over 2,500 colleagues in offices around the world. Doug has served in many other leadership roles during his career, including Global Leader for Willis Towers Watson’s Executive Compensation LOB.
Doug holds a B.S. degree in finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign and an M.M. degree in finance and marketing from the J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
