ZRG Partners Life Sciences Hiring Index Shows Modest Gains in 4th Quarter

Source: Company News Release

ZRG Partners, Inc. announces the results of its fourth quarter Global Life Sciences Hiring Index. Q4 reflects an overall gain in hiring, with Pharma activity over the long term reaching an all-time index high. Meanwhile R&D hiring took a hit dropping 15% from the previous quarter. The Asia Pacific Region saw significant hiring in Q4, more than 25%, with most being attributed to the Sales and Marketing function.

ZRG Managing Director David Fortier commented, “The results of this latest index correlate with the broader economy – inconsistencies across regions, sectors, and functions along with the continuation of a longer term trend of slow, steady, but uneven growth. The positive to take from these numbers is some robust hiring in selected functions within pharmaceuticals and a return of hiring in the commercial function indicating expectations of growth for some companies.”
