Resilience is more than a buzzword; it’s the key to success in the life sciences industry.

As turbulent tides test our resolve, we find ourselves at a pivotal moment — a moment where resilience becomes the differentiating factor between those who merely survive and those who thrive.

Learn how you can position your business for accelerated growth and success amid economic downturns.

The Challenges We Face

Just as life sciences companies were beginning to stabilise after the COVID-19 pandemic, a new wave of macroeconomic challenges hit the industry.

A possible global recession, high inflation, energy costs, staffing shortages, and geopolitical tensions are testing the sector’s resilience.

In the US, the life sciences sector has experienced an uptick in resignations due to low unemployment rates and the growing desire for flexible work options.

Thankfully, it’s not all doom and gloom! Our research shows that remarkable success often emerges in the face of adversity.

Drawing Inspiration from the Past

The life sciences industry has had a mixed track record when it comes to navigating market crashes.

According to the 2022 McKinsey Life Sciences Resilience Survey, less than 25% of life sciences company executives in the US are confident their organisation is well prepared to meet macroeconomic challenges.
