We recently surveyed San Francisco area bioscience organizations to help the community better understand the industry’s recruiting needs and challenges.
Findings offer insight into organizations’ #1 challenge (finding quality candidates) and whether the region has the talent, knowledge base and STEM-related skills needed to be competitive in the marketplace. Findings also address which attributes organizations can offer in order to attract the right talent.
While organizations identified recruiting as a critical business objective, most indicated that they don’t have a formal recruiting process in place. The organizations that do have a recruiting process shared that the areas in which they excel are screening potential candidates and aligning them with the organization’s goals and fit but struggle with finding quality candidates and attracting them to their position.
As the industry continues to grow and gain traction in areas across the U.S., ensuring the West Coast is poised to attract, find and retain quality talent will be mission critical. We look forward to continuing the discussion, gaining your insights and putting this data into action. Download the white paper and share your thoughts on the results in the comments section below.
