Advanced Clinical Research Services Announces its Workforce Strategy and Strategic Talent Management Model for Clinical Job Consultants


10/27/2010 2:05:38 PM

BANNOCKBURN, Ill.—(PRWEB) October 27, 2010—Advanced Clinical, a leading provider of talent management solutions in the clinical research industry, announces its workforce strategy and talent management model to effectively recruit and manage clinical consultants.

With more than 100,000 job cuts in life sciences since the beginning of 2009, successful talent management is essential for the industry to thrive. Teams need to be more productive, and the retention of “critical resources” needs to be stronger than ever given the fact that fewer resources hold valuable institutional knowledge. Many of Advanced Clinical’s clients report that, although their resources are diminished, the workload is the same and, as a result, there is more reliance on a flexible workforce. The paradigm has shifted to create a true “workforce strategy” that has a balance of permanent, temporary, onshore, offshore and outsourced resources. In addition, regardless of the sourcing option pursued, all parts of the workforce need to be properly cultivated to create efficient, high producing teams.

Advanced Clinical’s talent management model optimizes all elements of the workforce to ensure the right mix of people at the right time in the right location. Using this framework, Advanced Clinical initially creates workforce strategies for clients, providing them with an analysis of supply and demand to ensure skills and resources meet the needs of the company.

Once the strategy is in place, Advanced Clinical’s talent management model provides productive talent. Additional on-boarding and preparation methods ensure candidates can “hit the ground running.” The result is qualified consultants that fill required positions within weeks, not months.

Additionally, Advanced Clinical’s talent management model includes a “career platform” and a loyalty program for consultants. Through initial and ongoing performance management touchpoints, the career platform provides consultants opportunities to grow personally and professionally and become part of an exceptional, topflight team. The loyalty program ensures that there is limited undesirable turnover.

“We are fortunate to have a top flight consultant team. Given our highly personalized service and a proven talent management model, Advanced Clinical is able to attract and retain some of the brightest minds in the industry and, arguably, has the biggest pipelines for quality, experienced job candidates,” said Sean Gerstenlauer, Vice President of Advanced Clinical. “Our clients benefit from working with Advanced Clinical because we find the best, sharpest clinical experts who have the right ‘hard skills’ such as therapeutic area, functional, and phase-related experience, and we also consider a candidate’s soft skills and their ability to fit in the client’s culture.”

“Close to 50 percent of Advanced Clinical consultants have come from referrals,” said Rosemarie Truman, Executive Vice President of Advanced Clinical. “This is a testament to the fact that our workforce strategy defines the right blueprint and works for both consultants as well as the clients that hire them.”
