The demands on healthcare and life sciences legal and compliance leaders are at an all-time high. Today’s leaders face a myriad of technology changes, regulations and restrictions. To be successful amid constant change, a company must not only have a General Counsel succession strategy for growing its leadership team; it must also recruit and maintain the best possible talent that can guide the organization smoothly through transitions.
Many healthcare organizations attempt to take on the challenge of hiring a GC, CCO and other legal and compliance professionals themselves, usually so they can avoid the placement fee when working with a recruiting firm. However, they soon realize how difficult it is to find the right people. As the process drags out over several months, they eventually settle for a candidate that falls short of their expectations. It's not long until they realize they made a hiring mistake and need to go through the entire process again.
