Deploying the latest innovations in learning and development is vital in the highly complex environments of pharma, biotech and medical devices if organizations are to meet the challenges of attracting, engaging and retaining key talent. Keeping pace with product innovations, compliance and regulatory requirements, and the changing implications of our healthcare system make developing timely, effective training and development programs more difficult. This event will showcase organizations who are implementing agile, innovative learning strategies to develop their U.S. and global workforces.
