With global hiring volumes at record levels, people switching jobs at an unprecedented rate and the demand for recruiters greater than the demand for software engineers, it’s no surprise that scarcity of talent is an ongoing challenge for all sectors, but it is especially acute for life sciences.
When we think about the notion of scarce talent, we typically think of niche skills and rare candidates. Yet scarce talent is also roles for which demand outstrips supply.

This paper will provide guidance and insights on:
- Methodologies to conduct an internal analysis on scarce talent
- Benchmarking the results of your analysis against AMS data
- Proven strategies to help secure scarce talent
