Biomedical talent is needed now more than ever. With more biotech companies being created every day there are many roles to be filled. According to the Department of Labor and Statistics, employment for biomedical engineers is projected to grow 7% from 2016 to 2026. The expected growth considers the rise in the number of technologies and applications of medical equipment and devices that will be developed and utilized. Also, the projection estimates an increase in demand due to the medical needs of a growing and aging population.
Key Traits of Successful Biomedical Talent
When looking to acquire biomedical talent, it’s best to know what traits will bring the most value to your organization, especially with historic low levels of unemployment.
Talent Possesses a Niche Specialty
A biomedical professional who has a specialty in a specific niche is highly valued. This type of unique experience will drive business to your door. Having in-place specializations allow organizations to attract projects they may not have been considered for without the specialized expertise in house.
Talent Provides a Broad Range of Experience
If a candidate’s talent isn’t narrowly focused, look for biomedical talent that can “do it all.” Hiring and retaining candidates who have a broad range of skills and experience can help fill potential staffing gaps. For example, a candidate who can operate in both engineering and research can stretch your resources significantly, often at lower cost.
Talent is Published and Well Known in the Industry
Look for candidates who have published in industry publications. Not only will it bring attention to your organization, it can create needed industry connections. Having talent on your roster who will be asked to speak at industry conferences and panels will drive traffic to your company and serve as free advertising for what your firm can offer.
