COVID-19 is indubitably one of the worst diseases to hit mankind. During the lockdown, the healthcare pharma industries witnessed a significant acceleration in consumer behavior, while companies intensified and accelerated their pace of digital transformation to improve quality and productivity to speed up drug repurposing medicines and development of biomarkers.

This transformation and the demand for quicker results called for reassessing and recalibrating employees in terms of their skill levels, and addressing skills gaps through corporate training and upskilling to cope with new technologies and advances in respective functional domains.

With that in mind, we at Plethora set out to explore the state of upskilling in healthcare pharma, key skills required for corporate training going into 2021, and the role of L&D, corporate training programs and learning content in advancing skilling initiatives across organizations, in our recently conducted webcast ‘Upskilling 2021: The Healthcare Pharma L&D Game Plan’.

Hosted by our content solutions experts, along with Vishal Karad, Head of Corporate Capability Building and L&D at Emcure, the live webcast explored the year 2020 through the pandemic lens and what changes and disruptions it led to, especially for L&D professionals.
