RESEARCH & WHITEPAPERS

Corporate Board Member conducts survey-based research throughout the year to gather firsthand accounts from public company board members on shifting boardroom strategy discussions and processes. We also offer a timely look into boardroom sentiment with our Director Confidence Index, a monthly flash poll of board members on the economy and top-of-mind issues.

Following a multiyear global healthcare crisis that pushed medical professionals to their limits, heavy turnover and a talent pipeline shortage continue to plague healthcare organizations, large and small. At a recent roundtable co-sponsored by Chief Executive and Pearl Meyer, industry executives discussed the best way to develop that strategy.

Competing on Compensation as a Private Company

Compared with their public company peers, private company CEOs enjoy far greater flexibility in executive compensation program design. At the same time, freedom from restrictive regulations and disclosure requirements comes with a flip side: lack of access to the power of publicly traded equity-based pay as a recruitment and retention tool.
