HealthCatalyst Eliminates Non-Compete Agreements for Employees
SaltLake City – May 11, 2016 Health
, a leader inhealthcare data warehousing, analytics and outcomes improvement, today announced it is joining a growing number of companies that have decided to eliminate post-employment restrictive covenants. 
The so-called “non-compete”provisions restrict the types of jobs that employees may seek following termination of employment. 
Going forward, HealthCatalyst will no longer require employees to sign non-compete provisions as part of their employment agreements.  The company also has informed current employees that it will not seek to enforce any non-compete provisions that are contained in existing employment agreements.
“We believe that removing non-compete provisions is consistentwith our ongoing focus on creating a positive and supportive culture for our team members,” said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. “Imposing legal restrictions on their ability to seek employment elsewhere is inconsistent with that culture, and we feel it’s also anti-competitive and a drag on overall economic growth."
Burton added, “We are laser focused on attracting and retainingthe best and brightest people, who have a genuine desire to help us achieve our mission of transforming healthcare and improving health outcomes for patients across the U.S.”
The decision supports awork culture that has already received recognition as one of the nation’s best, including:
The 2016Gallup Great Workplace Award, createdto recognize organizations for their extraordinary ability to create engaged workplace cultures that drive business outcomes.
The GlassdoorEmployees’ Choice Award recognizing the BestPlaces to Work in the nation in 2016.
