Each year, Business Talent Group releases the High-End Independent Talent Report, looking across industries and business functions to analyze how business leaders deploy top independent talent to fill critical skill, expertise, and leadership gaps. Here are the key healthcare trends for 2024.

In healthcare, interim leadership needs are rising fast—making up 45% of projects, compared to 28% in the previous year—most notably for roles in IT, HR, and finance.
