Remote Work Opportunities Abound at Pfizer, GRAIL, Regeneron and More

Biotech Bay

After COVID-19, the biosciences industry, like many others, had to offer workplace flexibility or lose standout talent to more desirable companies, often touting work-life balance as a priority.

Life sciences organizations are required to think strategically to meet the practical challenges of hiring the right people for their business goals to succeed. In a recent BioSpace poll, more than half of employers indicated they planned to continue recruiting employees remotely. More than 70% of employers planned to implement work-from-home as a long-term practice.

As recruitment and retention becomes more challenging in the 2022 market, employers have responded by increasing recruitment budgets and getting creative to nab highly sought-after talent. Silicon Valley, also known as Biotech Bay, is leading the way. In a region already known for its tech prowess, the leap to remote work was virtually inevitable.

COVID-19 gave the push. Employers responded.

Major area organizations led the way to fully remote work options - Square, Slack, Upwork - with biosciences to soon follow. Remote work makes good fiscal sense too. As venture capital, critical to Biotech Bay operations, became tougher to come by post-pandemic, finding cost savings through work-from-home has become common practice.

Here, we highlight a number of remote opportunities, Biotech Bay and beyond, some featured exclusively on the BioSpace jobs board.
