|AECOM filed this Form DEF 14A on 01/23/2019|
Pursuant to Section 953(b) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the "Regulation", below we provide disclosure of the ratio of our CEO's annual total compensation to that of our median compensated employee.
Global Employee Data Set
To derive our global employee data set, we employed the following methodology and assumptions:
Consistently Applied Compensation Measure & Selection of Median Employee
To determine our median compensated employee, we used a Consistently Applied Compensation Measure (CACM). As our CACM, we used Annual Base Compensation, defined as base salary rate taking into account the employee's full-time or part-time status and the employee's scheduled hours of employment, plus any guaranteed 13th month period pay, as of the Determination Date. We exchanged non-U.S. compensation to US dollars applying the same fixed annual exchange rate used in our filed periodic reports.
The SEC's rules for identifying the median compensated employee and calculating the pay ratio based on that employee's annual total compensation allow companies to adopt a variety of methodologies, to apply certain exclusions, and to make reasonable estimates and assumptions that reflect their employee populations and compensation practices. As a result, the pay ratio reported by other companies may not be comparable to the pay ratio reported above, as other companies have different employee populations and compensation practices and may utilize different methodologies, exclusions, estimates and assumptions in calculating their own pay ratios.
