Our client, an International Clinical Research Organization, had secured a 100+ site phase III study that required a rapid uptake in highly skilled in-country resources.

The challenge

  • Having reduced domestic Data management and Programming headcount in-line with corporate initiatives, the client did not have sufficient depth in the team to allocated staff to new projects
  • A change in corporate policy meant that hiring a vast number of permanent employees in the US could take several months to be approved
  • Project activities had commenced so there was mounting pressure to on-board staff quickly

Our approach

  • Understand the business strategy, segment and target workforce required
  • Provided experience and accessibility benchmarking at inception phase
  • Cost planning at inception phase
  • Market and enhance brand position through connecting and technology
  • Provide in depth MI to ensure commitments being met and future objectives
  • Strategic talent deployment and pipelining • Onsite support and governance meetings as required
