SCORR Marketing and Applied Clinical Trials Release Survey Report on Recruiting and Retaining Clinical Research Employees

KEARNEY, Neb.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#healthscienceexpertsSCORR
, a global health science marketing and communications
firm, has announced that its new Talent Survey Report is available for
free download. The survey, conducted in partnership with Applied
Clinical Trials
, offers valuable insight for the health sciences
industry into the best strategies companies are using to attract and
retain clinical research talent.

“While competitive benefit programs and paid time off are rated as the
most effective employee retention efforts across all company sizes, the
effectiveness of other employee retention efforts depend in part on the
size of the company,” said Anne-Marie
, senior strategic advisor at SCORR. “Vesting (equity or 401k)
is the second-most effective employee retention program for large and
medium-sized companies. For small companies, higher salaries are rated
second. However, we know from our Salary
and Employee Satisfaction Survey Report
that better pay is not an
indicator of overall job satisfaction.”

“From the survey, we found that pharma and biopharma companies are more
likely to use both financial and non-financial incentives to recruit
employees,” said Todd
, group publisher at Applied Clinical Trials. “This could
explain why most employees migrate to these types of companies when they
change jobs within the health sciences industry.”

In addition, this report includes information on what tactics companies
prioritize when hiring and recruiting, which positions are most
difficult to replace, employee retention programs, evaluations of
company talent acquisition efforts and areas of emphasis for workplace
