Time to Evaluate Your Recruiter!

Have you ever had a consultant who was a drama queen and made excuses for everything she didn’t do or didn’t do right? Have you had a consultant who didn’t return her equipment, had overdue reports, couldn’t handle conflict at the sites or just didn’t produce the quality or quantity of work you expected?

When you have had these issues, has your recruiter solved them for you? 

There are going to be problems with your clinical team members.  After all, we do work with humans!  However, a quality clinical trial recruiter will work for you and aggressively address these types of issues.  Having a recruiter who does not bury his or her head in the sand when there are problems but who is in constant communication with you as well as with the consultant will greatly increase the chances of the obstacles being addressed quickly – before they get out of hand.  And when your recruiter is assessing and removing those obstacles, you can spend more of your time managing your clinical trials.

Along with addressing complications, it is important to work with CRA recruiters who are able to engage consultants who are passionate about clinical research.  It isn’t just about the skills and qualities of the CRA, but that the CRA wants to make a difference in the industry and cares about the success of your company.

So, it is time to evaluate what your clinical research recruiters do for you:

  • When issues arise, does your recruiter address them head-on?  Is he / she in constant communications with you and the consultant so you don’t have to go searching for status?  Or does your recruiter bury her head in the sand and become non-responsive?
  • Are your clinical consultants excited to be working with your company and the novel product you are representing? Or is the consultant more worried about billable hours and hourly rate?

It really is this simple!  If you are struggling with your clinical research recruitment agencies, I would recommend you check out some of the comments and ratings your peers have given some of the “top” recruiting companies out there.  You may be surprised in what you discover.
