As health care organizations and other not-for-profit institutions such as higher education, public charities and private foundations operate under increasingly narrow financial margins, the pressure to optimize service and efficiency to help advance their mission, vision and values continues to grow.

Investments in talent remain a significant component of an organization’s cost structure, and human resources executives must align employee compensation strategies with long-term strategic objectives to enable them to effectively serve their communities.
