SALT LAKE CITY (December 20, 2006) — Allen Communication Learning Services further solidified its presence as the training solutions provider of choice for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries by adding another key pharmaceutical developer to its list of pharma and healthcare clients. The addition reinforces Allen’s growth into pharmacovigilance, healthcare training, healthcare compliance training, business and marketing processes, and leadership management course development for the pharma, biotech and healthcare sectors. Since 2001 Allen has become a vendor of choice for five of the country’s largest pharmaceutical organizations.
As government regulations, employee retention and human resource management continue to impact the pharma, healthcare and biotechnology sectors, businesses face major hurdles when it comes to properly and effectively training and certifying their employees. As a result, many are turning to the learning experts at Allen Communication to find their optimal training solution.
“We’re excited about this new addition to our list of pharmaceutical partners,” says Ron Zamir, President of Allen Communication. “We’re noticing a trend where more and more pharma, biotech and healthcare companies are recognizing the impact highly-targeted and appropriate custom training will make on their operations. We partner with these companies using proprietary technology and strong instructional design processes to create regulatory compliant content that impacts their learners. Creating the optimal solutions for our pharma partners is something we are very proud of.”
Allen Communication projects a continued increase in customized training solutions for all types of healthcare-related businesses throughout 2007 as these organizations plan for increased governmental oversight, a drive to lower drug development costs and a tighter labor market. “The old client-vendor model is fading away as companies address their compliance needs,” adds Mr. Zamir. “Allen continues to see an increase in partnership models where our team of instructional experts acts as an extension to internal training departments.”
