Rethink & Redesign Your Life Sciences Talent Acquisition Strategy To Enhance TA Efficiency Today & Transform Your Business Impact Tomorrow

100+ other senior and strategic TA leaders came together for three full days where they navigated the impact of a more hesitant biopharma market in 2023.

25+ case studies were explored, of how pre-commercial biotechs, established biopharma organizations, and big pharma are breaking away from traditional thinking to redesign their approach to strategic talent acquisition and transform the value that the recruitment function provides to the wider business.

Following the intensity of the biopharma candidate market the past two years, this was a great opportunity to uncover how your peers are doing more with less, building highly effective talent management strategies into talent acquisition operations, and investing in the time-and-money saving technology that will transform TA impact when high-volume hiring ramps up again.
