This is the second year in which the supervisory body has prepared comparative data between these two figures. The difference between the income of different jobs has been reduced compared to the previous year, 2021, in which executive directors earned 60 times more than their employees.

For companies outside the Ibex 35, however, the multiple was 17 times, the same as that registered the previous year.

Almost a third of women on boards

The presence of women on boards increased by 2.6 percentage points, up to 31.9% for the total number of contributors. Only in the Ibex 35, the number of female directors was 37.6% of the total. In addition, women in senior management positions were 21.7% of the total, 2.1 points more.

The CNMV has highlighted that, with its recommendations, the percentage of women on boards has gone from 5.9% of the total in 2004 to more than 30% in 2022.

On the other hand, the supervisor has indicated that the free float contracted half a point last year, to 42.5%. Furthermore, in 79 companies (one more than in 2021), the sum of significant stakes and packages of shares held by the board exceeded 50% of the capital. In 31 companies, the free float was less than 25% and in three listed companies, less than 5%.

Regarding the independence of the board members, the CNMV indicates that 67.7% of the companies kept at least half of the board members as independent, three percentage points less than in 2021. Of the rest of the companies, the majority had at least a third independent.

The percentage of presidents of the administrative body with the category of executives decreased by 2.1 points, standing at 49.6% (51.7% in 2021). At the same time, the percentage of independent directors who acquired the position of president of the board decreased to 11.6%, compared to 14.2% in 2021.

In general, during 2022 the degree of follow-up of the Good Governance Code was 86.8% of the recommendations, while another 7% were partially followed. 51.2% of the listed companies (47.9% in 2021) followed 90% or more of the recommendations, while six listed companies claimed to comply with 100% and another two had less than 60% follow-up.
