Competency-Based Approaches to Staff Hiring, Management and Advancement

Beth Harper
Clinical Performance Partners, Inc.

In the clinical research industry, finding and retaining capable clinical research staff members is critical to ensuring quality work and avoiding the administrative burden caused by staff turnover. However, it can be challenging to determine the necessary requirements for an individual to perform well in a research position. It’s particularly difficult considering the general lack of structure in clinical research career paths. Without mandatory qualifications, degree programs, or other means of assessing skill-level, how do we determine if an individual is capable?

Join us for this free webinar to hear Beth Harper, President of Clinical Performance Partners, Inc., and the Workforce Innovation Officer for the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) explore the theory and practice of competency-based approaches for hiring, retaining and helping staff advance through more systematic, structured and objective-based approaches. Beth will provide an overview of the Joint Task Force (JTF) for Clinical Trial Competency and the work that the ACRP is involved with, translating the JTF framework to specific job roles including clinical research coordinators, study monitors and more.

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • Learn what a competency-based approach to staff hiring looks like in clinical research
  • Explore how leading institutions are incorporating clinical trial competencies to transform job classifications and descriptions
  • Gain practical takeaways from Beth’s recent workshop on personnel competencies at the 2018 Fall Onsemble Conference
