Add Some Certainty to Your Succession Plan

There are no guarantees in life or in business. Succession planning is a good business practice to alleviate the risk of losing your leaders and protect your company long-term.

But it’s hard to plan for every surprise, especially when it comes to health. Health information is private. Businesses have no way of knowing what’s going on inside their most valuable executives, which are among their greatest assets. Although you can’t know what’s happening with the health of your leadership team, you can take measures to protect yourself from the unknown.

Comprehensive care protects you from the catastrophic.

As we age, our risk for a number of health issues rises, presenting a myriad of potential problems for experienced executives and the companies they lead. By providing executive physicals for your high-level leaders, you help them stay on top of their health and prevent major issues.

Through a comprehensive medical exam that includes all the necessary screenings, tests and consultations your execs need, executive physicals help ensure leaders are mentally and physically able to perform their duties.

Executive physicals are an investment in your top talent.

The cost, disruption and loss of productivity from a key executive can make a dent in your balance sheet. Paying the costs of an annual comprehensive health check is minor in comparison.

Adding an executive health program to your succession planning is just another investment in a competitive executive benefits package—and in the future success of your company.
