Secure the skills for a changing world

The pharmaceutical world is changing. New, specialist drugs are rapidly coming to market. Established brands are losing exclusivity with patent cliffs looming. To maintain a competitive edge, companies must innovate at a faster pace than ever before.

But are employers confident that their staff have the skills to keep up? Is the working culture agile enough for the flexibility that drives innovation? Do sales teams have the aptitude to digest and retain complicated information? Are training programs working?

Assessing workers reveals what skills are missing across teams and business functions. It can show whether training is working. Assessing candidates before making the decisions to hire identifies which potential recruits can hit the ground running.
