Institute Of Directors, India: Embrace Transparency to Transform Your Business

SEBI urges 'Directors' Evaluation to be made Public

New Delhi: The high speed internet and the widespread use of smartphones have greatly increased transparency in the business world.

Now, SEBI panel has proposed increased transparency in the processes for appointment and removal of Board of Directors. The panel has also said that companies should have better systems for evaluating the performance of directors and should periodically disclose how board members have performed.

This comes a month after SEBI issued detailed guidance note for listed companies on board evaluation, to educate the listed entities and their board of directors about various aspects involved in the board evaluation process and improve their overall performance as well as corporate governance standards to benefit all stakeholders. 

Global economic uncertainty, increased regulatory burden, significant industry changes, business-model disruptions, and cyber security threats continue to remain major Board challenges. Also, despite increased scrutiny and demands from stakeholders, it has been observed that boards spend very little time on director education.

Over the years, Institute Of Directors (IOD), India has been debating on a number of boardroom issues, for promoting good Corporate Governance, Sustainability & Inclusive Growth. 

Today, over 90% of the board seats are attained through networking. So, why not join the unique IOD platforms, where today's corporate board members are networking?
