The article ponders on the effect of public outrage concerning pay differentials in Great Britain. There was a 5 percent increase in total reward for chief executives in large companies between 2008 and 2009, based on a report from reward consultancy MM&K in July 2010. The short-term performance of the economy is expected to affect trends in remuneration committee reports. The shift towards performance-related pay is attributed to the public outrage.
