CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Jan. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio-Pharmaceutical and medical device leaders are re-evaluating their staffing and investment levels in light of increasing regulatory and market pressures in the U.S., according to analysts at research and consulting firm Best Practices, LLC.
To identify which resourcing strategies will best reduce risk and enhance growth in the quickly changing healthcare industry, Best Practices, LLC, a world-leader in biopharmaceutical benchmarking and best practice research, has launched a new study: "Public Affairs and Public Policy Staffing in the U.S. Marketplace for Biopharmaceutical and Medical Device Companies."
This landmark study comprises wide-ranging staffing investment insights from bio-pharma and medical device executives across areas such as Structure and Reporting Relationships, Staffing and Investment and Consolidated Staffing and Investment Efficiency Ratios for the following functions:
- Government Affairs (State and Federal Government Relations and Public Policy)
- Corporate Communications – External
- Corporate Communication – Internal
- Product Communications
- Corporate Social Responsibility
- Alliance Management
This critical research study represents the latest contribution of Best Practices, LLC to the life science industry's staffing and investment knowledge. While previous studies have captured key metrics to identify optimal resource levels for maximum competitiveness, regulatory and other changes have continued to erode the effectiveness of the industry's proven business model - a fact pressing executives to reconsider efficient levels of human and capital investment.
This latest study therefore offers an open benchmark opportunity for public affairs/public policy executives throughout the bio-pharma and medical device sectors.
For assistance or questions related to this study, contact research team leader Cameron Tew at [email protected] or (919) 767-9246. Responses are requested by Feb. 21, 2012.
