SJ Pharmaceuticals provides career-development training on demand
Article Type: Notes and news From: Industrial and Commercial Training, Volume 40, Issue 3.
SJ Pharmaceuticals, a specialty pharmaceutical company, has introduced a new system to provide on-demand career-development training for its rapidly growing workforce.
“To help us toward our goal of becoming a premier pharmaceutical sales and marketing organization, we needed a robust and flexible platform to manage sales training and marketing materials”, said Chrissy Warren, corporate sales-training manager. “After researching the talent-management industry, we determined the best solution to track, manage and centralize all of our training initiatives. For our company, it was very important to have a scalable learning-management system that is highly customizable.
“From an external standpoint, the platform we have chosen makes it easier for our sales team to receive the training they need to perform their jobs more effectively and to increase revenue. We will also use the platform to track employee-development records, from pre-hire to retire. This solution will be the glue that keeps everything together administratively”.
Based in Memphis, Tennessee, SJ Pharmaceuticals is a family business committed to the development and marketing of prescription pharmaceutical products. It has products in the respiratory, urology and cardiovascular therapeutic categories.
