Executive employment contracts are essential in today's turbulent healthcare environment.
Effective and well-written contracts empower leaders to take risks and confront politically sensitive issues. Smart contracts also help organizations attract and retain highly competent leaders. This book describes these necessities and also includes the following sample contracts that can be adapted for your use:
A long form contract recommended for newly hired CEOs
A short form or letter of agreement for CEOs currently employed
A letter of agreement for key non-CEO executives
In Contracts for Healthcare Executives, experts in executive search, healthcare management, executive compensation, and healthcare law provide:
insight on the trends in employment contracts and
the process of contract negotiation.
You may wish to make sure that this book is made available to all trustees, board members, lawyers, and human resource directors working with your organization. At various points in a healthcare executive's career development, contracts play a vital role, including the initial recruitment process and during hiring negotiations. Contract provisions also can serve as a source of security when leaders find themselves in the position of making groundbreaking or politically sensitive decisions.
Contracts for Healthcare Executives does an excellent job of arming hospital representatives as well as contractually bound executives with basic information they should know when approving or generating these important documents. The book not only provides an overview of the need for contracts and the types of contracts available, but also discusses the methodology behind commonly used provisions and associated obligations.
Equally useful is the inclusion of sample contracts for newly hired CEOs, a letter of agreement for CEOs currently employed, and a letter of agreement for key non-CEO executives. For a topic based so strongly in legal discussions and methodology, the authors do an effective job of summarizing the types of contracts and the rationale behind the contracts in a concise and engaging manner.
