It is always about people. For any organization to succeed talented workforce is as important as money, vision and an innovative idea.
With global increase in demand for medicines and quality healthcare services, the field of lifescience has become a trillion-dollar sector, attracting students to pursue this discipline dreaming of a bright career.
Many domestic and international companies have also realized the potential and capabilities of Asian countries in research and development and have increased their investments in this area, thus promising more jobs.
In such a win-win situation there should be no difficulty in finding a job or recruiting the right talent for any organization. But still, the industry as well as lifescience workforce seem to grapple with this issue of JOBS and finding the right skilled labor for its organization. So clearly there is a gap in what the industry needs and what the academic organizations produce or the talent available.
On one side shortage of skilled talent is increasing competition for talent hunting among top life sciences companies, while on the other side graduates and life science employees are not finding the right job.
