Netsol follows a single tier board structure, having board of directors on the top which includes
Chairman, CEO & COO, and directors in an advisory role, to support decision making for the
company. Single tier boards are very common in the Asian countries. The most important
competency is to delegate. It is very difficult for a CEO to let go of his decision-making power,
and let his junior takes some important decisions. Due to the nature of the business the decision
making power has been delegated to the individual departments, which Netsols CEO Salim
Ghauri has done.
Moreover for effective talent management Netsol has formed a human resource and
remuneration committee at their board level comprising of the following three members. The
committee gives recommendations to the board regarding selection, evaluation and
compensation of key management positions.

Moreover for compensating employees, Netsol started a stock option scheme for their employees
in 2009, and granted more than 4 million stock options.
All these practices show the role of the directors and their commitment towards enhancing their
human capital through formulating an executive committee of human resource at the executive
level of Netsol.
