PharmaTimes spoke with Within3 CEO Lance Hill about pharma remote work and how the industry will navigate this important shift.

In early 2020, COVID-19 made the transition to digital and virtual collaboration more urgent. “As home working becomes a more popular option worldwide, companies may have to adjust to ensure they don’t miss out on any of the ‘spontaneous interactions’ that can happen at an office,” Hill told Pharma Times.
