RESUMEN

La literatura ha puesto en cuestión si realmente las grandes diferencias retributivas entre directivos están vinculadas con mejores resultados de la organización. En este trabajo, sobre la base de los argumentos de la teoría del torneo, se ha tratado de aportar nuevas evidencias en esta línea, utilizando para ello datos de las 120 empresas españolas que cotizan en Bolsa. Los resultados obtenidos, considerando la forma convexa en las relaciones dispersión-resultados de Brown et al. (2003) y las características del trabajo directivo–alto nivel jerárquico, interdependencia moderada y alta incertidumbre-, indican que existe una relación positiva, aunque moderada por ciertas variables, entre dispersión retributiva y resultados de la empresa.

This study, based on tournament theory arguments, has attempted to provide new evidences in this line of research, using a sample of 120 Spanish listed firms. Results, taking into account convex shape in the dispersion-performance relationships reported by Brown et al. (2003) and the characteristics of executive job–high hierarchy level, moderate interdependence, and high complexity-, indicate a positive, although moderated, relationships between executive pay dispersion and firm performance.
