CHICAGO, Oct. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare organizations that prioritize the recruitment and development of top C-Suite and board talent must embrace the realities of turnover, retooling, innovation, accountability and new C-Suite positions, according to an InveniasPartners white paper based on interviews with leaders of U.S. hospitals and health systems. The Evolving Healthcare C-Suite: Trends, Predictions and Strategic Advice is available for download at http://www.inveniaspartners.com.
"We were struck by executives' understanding of how industry pressures will guide the application of executive search, assessment, development and succession planning strategies in building more responsive, high-performing healthcare organizations," said Curt Lucas, President and CEO of InveniasPartners. "Organizations must identify short and long-term talent needs and invest in recruitment, assessment and talent management strategies oriented toward innovation, and engagement."
Senior executives interviewed for the white paper included presidents and CEOs from Barnabas Health, Baylor, Scott & White, St. Joseph Health, Scripps Health, and Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health. Trends cited include the following:
- C-Suite Leaders: The notion of what constitutes an ideal or effective healthcare C-Suite executive or board member will evolve in the years leading up to 2020.
- Innovation: Innovation superstars will remain on the radar of healthcare C-Suites and boards. "Organizations want executives capable of building and contributing to an enterprise-wide culture of innovation and transformation," said Lucas.
- Turnover: C-Suite turnover and retooling will continue. "C-Suite executives run into trouble not because of what they do but because of how they do it," said Lucas. "C-Suite and board members will continue to adjust roles, responsibilities, relationships and accountabilities."
- Engagement: Engagement and experience will emerge as C-suite functions. Added Lucas: "C-Suite executive will plan, develop and lead experience-building and engagement strategies that involve physicians, patients, consumers, employers and community and government leaders."
- MD Execs: The next round of healthcare CEOs will include physician executives, according to the white paper. "Physician executives have the knowledge, skill, experience and collegial respect required to achieve top clinical, financial and operational performance," said Lucas.
