Talent transformation journey
Genentech Inc. is a biotechnology corporation headquartered in San Francisco, California. The company is comprised of scientists and drug-discoverers that research and develop life-saving medicines for treating diseases like cancer, lymphoma and diabetes.
As one of the first biotech companies in the world, Genentech has a history of breaking new ground in the medical research field but was faced with a new challenge. Like many companies today, Genentech was having issues responding dynamically to market changes and demands. Since the company’s teams sit in functional and business unit silos, the process of finding and extracting people from their current work and shifting them to new priority projects was static and manual.
To help solve this challenge, they partnered with IBM to develop and embark upon a talent transformation journey using intelligent workflows.
