Now that life sciences HR leaders have tackled the immediate consequences and challenges of the global pandemic, it is now time to look beyond 2021 and navigate the complexities of designing what the future of work will look like at in their organizations – and the impact these strategies will have on attracting, developing and retaining talent.

Focusing on the practical realities of the plans that have been made, LEAP HR: Life Sciences Fall Edition will help you uncover how these future of work strategies have impacted recruitment, culture, benefits, compensation, performance management, learning and development in the long-term.

This will be your first and only opportunity to hear how new, disruptive HR thinking is pioneering the innovative ‘future of work’ strategies that are giving companies the edge on the war for life sciences talent, building high-performing cultures of remote working, and enabling life sciences businesses to drive greater collaboration and innovation.

Work with your team to set a clear, bespoke action plan of what you are going to change when you get back to your business to ensure you get a fast ROI.
