Onboarding is the process of welcoming new employees into an organization and providing them with the tools, resources, and knowledge to become successful in their new role. PRA researchers evaluated the impact of the onboarding process on medical writers’ self-reported success factors using online surveys collected from 12 pharmaceutical industry medical writers. Results demonstrated that when employers devoted more time to onboarding and mentoring, medical writers were more confident in their roles and were able to produce higher quality documents. The more confident the medical writer became, the stronger the drive was for success.
