Olive Casey, HR director at Amgen Dún Laoghaire, explains how evolving practices in the world of work could impact a career in life sciences.

The life sciences field is increasingly becoming a multi-generational workforce as more young graduates and millennials enter the world of work, joining experienced professionals. As such, the needs of the workforce will be much broader and more varied in the future than they are right now.

This is just one of the many ways that the future of work is due to impact pharma companies such as Amgen, as the HR director of the company’s Dún Laoghaire site, Olive Casey, notes.

Casey points out that an integration of the physical and virtual work environment is inevitable, and that not only will the workplace have to adapt to this, but universities will have to ensure they’re adequately equipping students for this new reality once they graduate.
