Technology is transforming the life sciences industry and accelerating how it innovates and produces products. The increasing prevalence of automation, robotics, AI, the IoT, and other technologies is changing how products are designed and manufactured, while unprecedented access to data is enabling new levels of insight and reporting. At the same time, the changing demographics and makeup of the life sciences workforce is putting pressure on companies. A skills gap caused by the approaching retirement of experienced employees, the rise of contract and gig workers, and the need to integrate a multigenerational workforce are all combining to disrupt the industry’s ability to attract and retain top talent.
To remain competitive, life sciences organizations need to transform. While technology is the foundation of digital transformation, people are the driving force. It’s the intersection of the two that will foster the future of work. In the face of digital transformation, learn how you can leverage technology to propel your most valuable asset – your people – into the future of work.
“The life sciences sector’s commitment to digital transformation is increasing, but relatively few organizations appear to be maturing digitally. Organizations positioned for exponential growth appear to have leaders that embrace change and employees who are willing to get on board with new initiatives. These organizations display higher digital engagement and data analytics skills.”
