Business Challenge:

Rigid resourcing models and high attrition create significant business challenges for research and clinical trial teams. Research organizations often face difficulties in maintaining an optimal balance of skilled resources, which can lead to overburdened teams, increased project delays, and compromised quality. Float pools address this challenge by providing a flexible workforce to meet fluctuating staffing needs. By offering a readily available pool of experienced professionals, float pools help organizations respond to varying demands, ensure continuity in trial execution, and maintain efficiency in the face of unexpected staffing shortages or surges in workload.

Resourcing adaptability ultimately contributes to the successful completion of research projects and the timely delivery of life-changing treatments to patients.
