The Training Challenge in Life Science
The success of a company is considerably reliant on skilled and proficient employees. However, enabling new joiners and upskilling the skills of the existing workforce can significantly challenge companies, particularly within industries subject to stringent regulations. Pharma companies have faced regulatory issues related to their training practices. In the Life Science industry, operators on the shopfloor must absorb up to 2000 pages of training in SOP information to ensure high-quality production, which in many cases is a challenge and unmanageable to ingest. This leaves, especially, new joiners and even experienced employees struggling to comply with the required business guidelines, and thus complete their tasks correctly. It’s noteworthy to mention that operators are commonly present within this industry, given that learning predominantly occurs through practical hands-on experience, rather than relying on extensive analog SOPs.

The Value of Going Digital with 21st Century Training
21st Century Training can be used during onboarding, for on-demand support for qualified employees, and for ongoing training, meaning that the training is available whenever needed.
Effectively replacing traditional paper-based approaches, digital Guides offer a revolutionary way for employee learning, training, and instructions. Leveraging the power of mixed reality technology, digital guides bring images, videos, and holographic 3D models into intuitive, three-dimensional intelligent guidance. These guides vividly demonstrate tasks and their respective locations, providing employees with precise visual instructions using multiple ways and supporting employees with different preferred learning methods. This streamlined approach to training and guidance in which practical hands-on experiences function as the underlying learning approach efficiently replaces the need for paper-based work instructions and extensive readings of comprehensive SOPs. These guides are intuitive and easy to follow, and they support different learning preferences and styles. By using digital guides, employees can complete tasks faster, make fewer mistakes, and remember skills better. Digital guides are an excellent way to modernize your training and make it more effective and engaging, making it an exceptional alternative for modernizing your training setup into a 21st Century Training environment.
Besides the fact that Veeva establishes a direct link to your digital training, when seamlessly integrated with the Power Platform another noteworthy advantage is its ability to facilitate knowledge transfer through digital means, anchoring employee training in a virtual environment. This empowers organizations to transfer expertise from experienced employees to new hires or colleagues, nurturing a culture of collaboration and knowledge-sharing. This cultivates a more impactful training process and ultimately contributes to a workforce that is well-equipped and proficient.
The evolving demands of the Life Science industry have set the stage for a paradigm shift in training methodologies. The need for agile and effective training becomes paramount and a business differentiator. Embracing a forward-thinking outlook, organizations can harness the potential of Veeva’s visionary possibility for integration of mixed reality with robust digital platforms that pave the way for a 21st Century Training environment.
