Watch Now

A global expansion of the biohealth industry, combined with a skills shortage and a rapidly changing technology landscape, has made ‘talent’ one of the most talked-about topics both in the boardroom and on the front line for hiring managers.

In the BioHealth Capital Region, where reports are stating there are 2,000 current and projected open jobs within the biotech sector, the topic of attracting and retaining talent has never been more urgent. Some companies will adapt and succeed, while others will struggle to keep up. We want to help you and your company understand the challenges, take advantage of the opportunities, and succeed in growing your business, and the biotech community, in the BioHealth Capital Region.

To address this challenge, BioBuzz and Frederick City and County Economic Development have teamed up to bring you a panel of Frederick biotech leaders who are tackling these talent challenges head-on and are ready to share their expertise to help your company succeed. If your organization is growing and needs to hire biotech talent, then this is an event that you can’t miss.
