In a changing economic landscape, designing effective compensation strategies for executives, physicians, advanced practice providers and other employees is more challenging than ever before.

Developing competitive programs that drive individual performance and align with key organizational objectives is critical as health care and not-for-profit organizations compete to attract and retain the industry’s top talent.
