In countries outside the U.S., employee turnover in clinical monitoring (the function that monitors participants’ health during a clinical trial) took a significant jump to 22.9% in 2016 from the previous year’s turnover of 16.4%, a 40% increase. Turnover in the U.S. for clinical monitoring jobs at CROs remained high at 25.8% in 2016 with a 2.7% increase over the previous year’s reported 25.1% (2015). What is hidden behind these numbers are cases where individual companies are experiencing turnover that is well over 70% outside the U.S. and over 40% domestically. This is significantly higher than estimates of overall U.S. professional turnover of 17.8%.
