FDA and HPAA regulations are getting increasingly more complex, and their scope touches more than just the technical personnel in any given pharmaceutical company. In order to succeed in today’s complex environment, EVERY employee needs to be aware and knowledgeable about these regulations and their implications for the company.
In order to be able to sell products into other countries, workers must also be knowledgeable about the regulatory standards in those countries as well. This can be a tall order!
Many companies offer outsourced training programs, but these are usually “kitchen-sink” type courses in which employees are exposed to a great deal of information which may or may not apply to your unique business.
Contracting pharmaceutical consultants to create a comprehensive training program specific to YOUR needs will improve the chances that your employees will retain the information critical for success. You will also have the opportunity to choose the countries whose regulatory information matters to your business.
Internal resources play a large part in regulatory training as they can help answer these key questions – what key areas are likely to be needed, what teams or resources need access to both these internal resources as well as additional training, and what needs to be added to the internal knowledge base in the regulatory area?
Hiring an outside consulting firm to tailor your comprehensive training programs also allows you to provide training customized to the needs of individual groups within your company. This makes the entire process more efficient, and manageable.
Measuring the ROI of any training program can be a daunting task. A good consulting firm will work with your company to design specific measures that will help you understand and quantify the true impact of the training on a group-by-group basis.
Last but not least, it has been proven that training is largely ineffective if given all at once. Splitting it up into segments and timing these segments appropriately is also the job of a superior consulting firm.
