MedComms Professionals Collaborates with Ashfield on Medical/Healthcare Communications Survey

Medcomms Professionals have been working with Ashfield Healthcare Communications to ask healthcare communications professionals a few questions about building a career in this industry.

Gill Adair, Global Head of Talent Acquisition and Change Management Lead at Ashfield Healthcare Communications said: “The working environment in the healthcare communications sector has shifted significantly over recent years with employers fundamentally changing what they need to offer to attract and support talent.

“Attracting the best talent is key for us and so we have partnered with Clinical Professionals to get an updated understanding of what people are looking for in an employer and what drives their career choices.  We want to understand this to retain our current talent as well as be attractive to others.

“Ultimately, the research will help the industry to recruit and retain talented professionals by developing their workplace policies in line with employee’s aspirations and lifestyle drivers.” 

Ashfield Healthcare Communications provides strategic, insight-led, multichannel solutions, and works for clients on a local, regional and global level across Europe, the USA and Asia.

Ashfield Healthcare Communications is an industry renowned and trusted agency for delivering integrated programmes and highly effective campaigns that are targeted at multiple audiences, to raise awareness, drive sales and exceed client expectations.
