The Governance Institute | Executive Compensation and Governance Trends for 2021 and Beyond

As the response to COVID-19 continues, healthcare organizations nationwide face an uncertain environment in the near-term as vaccination rates slow, virus variants appear, and operational recovery from the pandemic accelerates. Additionally, there are a myriad of intermediate and longer-term forces at play—such as reimbursement pressures, technology disruption, workforce burnout and labor shortages, new competitive threats, and regulatory changes—that require attention.

The complexity of healthcare organizations continues to increase as pressures mount for financial sustainability, diversification, efficiency, and new care delivery models. Leadership retirements and burnout brought on by the pandemic have exacerbated the limited supply of executive talent with the skills,  experience, and competencies needed to lead these complex organizations through significant change. As healthcare organizations address changing performance priorities and leadership recruitment and retention needs during this uncertain time, executive compensation programs, talent strategies, and governance will continue to adapt.

Featured in the September edition of The Governance Institute’s E-Briefings, SullivanCotter recaps the response of healthcare organizations in 2020 and outlines priorities for 2021 and beyond.
