Scientific Staffing Solutions
With the global economy in a seemingly endless state of flux, companies continually face greater challenges to juggle the demands of increasing expenses and shrinking budgets. As the bio/pharmaceutical industry seeks to reduce costs, there is a significant trend to not only outsource laboratory services but insource laboratory services. Companies faced with fixed (or reduced) headcounts and variable workloads are collaborating with laboratory services providers to help them solve their workload and staffing challenges.
Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories' award-winning Professional Scientific Staffing (PSS) places full-time scientists and support
personnel, directly at the client's facility. Hired, trained and managed by Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories, PSS provides a non-permanent, long-term and cost-effective way to meet in-sourcing service needs, while delivering same scope of services, expertise and cGMP compliance available at Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories' facilities.
Fully compliant with co-employment and EU law, PSS provides the client's laboratory with highly skilled scientists who deliver an extensive range of both scientific and support services, while utilizing the quality systems within the client's facilities. This insourcing approach frees up the client's own employees to address core business priorities, while offering a highly managed and productive, cost-effective, non-temporary workforce solution that doesn't fall under the Temporary Workers Directive in Europe or violate co-employment in the US.
A pharmaceutical company executive and PSS client said, "We had a lot of projects that had to be done very quickly and didn't have the resources to do them. We had extremely tight turnaround times and proprietary methods that needed to remain in-house. Addressing every problem we had, PSS delivered solutions with high-level scientists using our methods in our house faster than outsourcing."
Celebrating 10 years of strategic insourcing partnerships and receiving numerous client supplier awards, PSS has grown over 50 percent for the last four years to include more than 25 global sites with more than 500 employees.
