Today, authorities at global level are putting more pressure on compliance, regulatory, product safety, clinical data, pricing and reimbursement, health economics and outcomes research (…).

This means that companies have to strengthen their strategies in three areas: product development, market access and product pricing. Companies who want to stay competitive and differentiate from others have no choice but to adapt quickly to these changes and really think in terms of “value” “compliance” “process” or “efficiency”.

What value do they bring to patients? What value do they bring to doctors? What value will they bring to the market with their new drug or medical device? Does the value of their product justify the price the organization wants for it? Is their company compliant with business practices and health regulations? Which processes will support business practices and sales efficiency?
War for talent is back. Why? Because more than ever what will make the difference for a company is the quality and value that talents can bring. The companies who are successful today may not be the ones who will be successful in ten years. What do we mean by talent? We not only mean strong hard skills but also “soft skills” such as flexibility, open communication, creativity, courage, accountability, self-motivation, integrity, international outlook, influencing skills, vision and leadership.

The talents we are looking for today will be the Leaders of tomorrow. They also need to be able to handle day to day communication and crisis communication. Today, how many top level executives are able to manage crisis communication in a complex environment?

WAR FOR TALENT is back and executive search professionals with strong expertise can really add value to organizations facing these major challenges.
