This onboarding course is geared toward the pharmaceutical industry, particularly for anyone who is responsible for managing or delivering training in a GMP environment, and HR employees who interact frequently with the GMP training organization to coordinate onboarding. The aim of the course is to provide practical information, which has already been used on the job effectively, and suggest similar actions that learners can apply to their job situations quickly.

Why Should You Attend:

Onboarding new employees in a pharmaceutical company, which is required by law to follow the regulations governing current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), creates additional complexities besides the Human Resources element. As government regulatory agencies have expectations regarding the process of qualifying employees to perform their job duties, it is essential to become familiar with these expectations and the implications that they have for the company’s training plan. In addition, companies have been penalized for failure to follow established regulations, which can create issues that can impede production, damage a company’s reputation, or ultimately lead to recalling or discontinuing product. Still, the process is not straightforward and questions inevitably arise regarding the application of the regulations. This course will address the issues that accompany onboarding new or transferred employees and enable you to navigate them successfully.

Learning Objectives:

The objective of the course is to enable attendees to:

  • Define the onboarding process in the context of regulatory compliance
