The health and life sciences sector is facing a period of uncertainty. Legislative changes have created real pressure on HR and talent leaders to attract, develop and engage a workforce that can respond and adapt to a consumer-driven marketplace. The pace of change only continues to accelerate. Healthcare and life science organizations are operating in a highly regulated environment, with changing business models, disruptive technologies, and significant amounts of data.

The Pharma HR Excellence 2018 gathers HR leaders who aim to profitably develop HR business acumen, effectively reshape its function and successfully transform leadership development within their organisation to becoming a world class employer in the industry.
