As the biopharmaceutical industry continues to grow and expand, it increases the demand to develop a pool of skilled workers. Some bioprocessing positions can be difficult to fill, and those that are currently filled are at a constant risk due to competition in the market. Without routine training programs, your employees’ capabilities may not be strong enough to effectively execute on process development and manufacturing operations. This “skills gap” can slow down the progress of your molecule or even lead to costly batch errors. However, these skills are not easy to learn and master. How can you ensure that your staff is up to date on today’s complex bioprocessing techniques and technologies?
