Healthcare organizations are adopting sophisticated approaches to executive compensation packages to better align business strategy, organizational performance and executive pay. These programs can result in a powerful connection between the executive team and the board’s vision by calibrating pay to performance, providing market-competitive yet reasonable compensation and managing overall compensation costs.

Join IHA Event Sponsor Pearl Meyer in a webinar on how to conduct a pay-for-performance analysis of your executive compensation program. The webinar will focus on how to identify and utilize pay-for-performance analytics to classify performance measures and goals for the upcoming performance cycle.

Attendees will also learn how to:

  • Determine whether performance and pay are properly aligned and evaluate the ongoing use of current performance metrics.
  • Make decisions about modifying award opportunity levels and measure weightings.
  • Evaluate results over multiple years to decide whether performance targets are too easy or too difficult.
  • Ensure that individual total direct compensation levels are positioned appropriately against market competitors based on performance.
