02.10.2017 – Talents: HR Flash by Sébastien Stoitzner, GenSearch
The European Biotech market is extremely dynamic, acknowledged as being number two in the world of market rankings. This is a cause for celebration!
A number of European governments have invested a significant amount of public resources, including public funding, to create dedicated clusters that have been instrumental in developing a strong biotech ecosystem.
In addition to public investment, venture capitalists have been quite active as well. They have contributed greatly to the structuring and professionalisation of the European Biotech market.
As human resources professionals, we have observed that those companies invest almost all their energy into two specific areas for their business: raising money and making science move forward. It makes sense, does it not?
Yes, it does!
However, we are convinced that a third area should be addressed with the same energy and the same professional approach: talent acquisition and talent development. At the end of the day, when you want to be successful at raising money or at making science move forward, people are the key, are they not?
