The days of finding new talent by identifying people who “fit the mold” are over. Traditional talent searches won’t uncover qualified life sciences professionals, as new skills are needed to survive in the rapidly changing market. Companies need to rethink entire structures of employee recruiting, development and retention as they embrace the new professionals needed to carry them into the future.
We help life sciences companies create talent profiles that match the forward-looking skills they need. Not only do these organizations need scientists and engineers, but they also need innovators and collaborators. We help our clients assess their high-potential talent against a broad leadership profile, so they measure not only whether their talent has been successful in the past but also whether they have the leadership capabilities and emotional intelligence needed to excel in the future. Additionally, we help them create new career pathways and employee recognition and reward models that encourage loyalty in leaders and high potentials.
The rapid advancement of technology is forcing life sciences companies to accelerate their digitization efforts. For example, companies are incorporating IT and automation in drug, vaccine and device development as well as in personalized medicine. To compete, life sciences companies must grow more agile, innovative, collaborative and customer-centric. All of these changes require new digital tools and technologies that enable new ways of working and meeting customers’ needs.
The rising demand for digital across the industry means that life sciences businesses must upskill and reskill their existing talent base. Korn Ferry offers innovative solutions for these pressing talent-management issues. We help organizations inventory their current workforce’s skills and identify the new digital skills that will be needed to support future work. We then engage in a strategic workforce planning effort, using advanced simulation tools to understand your legacy workforce, identify skills gaps and create learning and development plans to close those gaps.
Rising competition is forcing life sciences companies to accelerate the delivery of new products and solutions. To streamline operations and develop specific sets of skills and competencies, some life sciences organizations have started outsourcing certain disciplines, such as research and development, production, supply chain and HR management.
We advise life sciences companies on whether the current workforce matches their strategic imperatives and future workload. We evaluate the structure of strategic resources, determining what work should be done in house, what can be done by contractors and what can be restructured. Our life sciences consultants help our clients determine the right size for headcount and cost strategy, so companies can adapt their size and structure to match the business market and adjust as needed to avoid falling behind the competition.
