More companies in the United States have disclosed the specific goals used in executive compensation plans in 2008 proxies, though roughly one-third still do not provide this information, according to an analysis by Watson Wyatt Worldwide.

More than two-thirds (68 per cent) of the 75 large, publicly traded companies studied disclosed the actual goals on which they based rewards under 2007 annual incentive plans, up from 54 per cent last year.
