Case Study

Successful Analytical Quality Control Support for Three Years

SGS was asked to provide a global pharmaceutical client with analytical QC support for new product development in Asia-Pacific. We then gave the client job descriptions and candidate profiles to review. Suitable candidates were shortlisted, interviewed and onboarded onto our payroll within six to eight weeks.

Over the course of the year, the team expanded from 8 to 40 FTEs and has been working on this project for over three years now. SGS manages the insourced team’s performance on an ongoing basis according to pre-defined KPIs, set out by the client, and provides performance and technical support when necessary.
