Boehringer Ingelheim Case Study

Working together as a trusted partner to deliver highly skilled specialists

Company background

Boehringer Ingelheim is one of the pharmaceutical industry’s top 20 companies in the world with over 146 affiliates and around 50,000 employees. The company is privately held and is a full member of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations.

They create value through innovation for the three business areas - human pharmaceuticals, animal health and biopharmaceuticals.  With sales of over 18 billion euros, they invest over £3 billion in R&D alone as well as ensuring they have the best people to drive their innovation and make sure it becomes a reality. 

The challenge

Due to the complex nature of their business, they require highly specialist skilled candidates to support both their technology division and clinical operations. This also includes deep compliance requirements and a range of technical, data and system skills which are unique to the pharmaceutical sector. Being truly international there is also the additional requirement to work globally at scale across multiple disciplines, territiories, timescales and cultures.

The solution

We took the time to understand the skills and experience required by the business, as we were looking into the future to establish a long term relationship. This ensured the best way to commercially support their global workforce by providing the right skills, in the right locations including the UK, Germany and the USA.

The focus was on providing skilled consultants for both short and long-term engagements.  Skills have included Big Data, Data Science, Clinical Data Management, Project Managers, Data Standards experts, SAS programmers and Statistics.

The result

Having a deep trusted partnership with two-way feedback on the business demands, skills required and the workforce solutions required has enabled Boehringer Ingelheim to ensure they attract and retain the best people in the market. This reduces the internal resource required within Boehringer to free them up to focus on their other value add activities.

This also provides us the ability to ensure we constantly find the right people for the business to enable the business to meet their goals and objectives. We ensure these individuals are of the right calibre, skill set, can hit the ground running and make a swift contribution to the business.scovery call
