Talent sourcing and development


The life sciences industry is rapidly evolving, with new sales models focusing more on specialists and open business models for R&D organisations. Given the overall complexity of a life sciences company, the talent strategy needs to be adapted to the specific business challenges. Adequate skills and expertise are required to:

  • Manage changing skill requirements
  • Attract critical workforce segments, especially scarce technical, engineering and scientific profiles to drive future R&D growth and innovation
  • Retain critical workforce segments in an environment of organisational changes, post-merger integrations and labour cost reductions
  • Adapt work solutions to employees’ expectations
