Employer branding statistics pertaining to the life science sector.

If you’re tasked with attracting and retaining talent to your organization and you happen to work in the life sciences and pharmaceutical industry, you have your work cut out for you. With a growing and aging population, the sector’s role in society will keep expanding. While the industry’s products touch lives every day and are therefore well-known, the companies behind the live-saving drugs and medical devices are not well-known at all, and neither are their employer brands.

Add to that the fact that the sector has to compete with others to attract top talent: according to the Randstad Employer Brand Research 2017, life sciences/pharmaceuticals lag behind technology (#1) and IT among the most desirable sectors. Research also shows 77% of people working in the sector indicated they would be willing to switch to another sector.
