Life Sciences Contract Services

When change is constant, leaders who can drive growth are indispensable.

Korn Ferry’s Life Sciences Contract Services Sector focuses on helping companies attract, develop, and retain agile leaders who can fuel growth in a fluctuating environment. With the ongoing consolidation of the pharmaceutical industry and the increasing regulatory pressure, contract services companies require leaders who can execute creative strategies while leveraging opportunities for growth. We offer a full range of talent solutions designed to address the unique needs of contract services companies — from strategic search, competency based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.

Increased pressure to have best-in-breed leaders.

With the need for Pharmaceutical companies to build more robust pipelines with a greater emphasis on cost control, it is imperative that outsourcing companies provide services in a highly efficient manner while continuously improving quality. As the Pharma/Biotech industry is challenged to grow under new and increasing constraints and meet shareholder margin expectations, the effects ripple out to the contracted services sector. Private equity continues to invest in this market, spurring companies to ensure they have the leadership teams they need to meet changing expectations. Many are taking a close look at their high potential development and succession planning, and pursuing C-suite talent in non-Pharma industries to broaden the playing field and intersection of business and life sciences.
