Note that while a majority of the Total Benchmark Class identified corporate culture and overview as very important, a majority of the Pharma/Device segment did not identify them as very important. The different perspectives may be a reflection of different priorities: Only 27 percent of the Pharma/Device segment identified retention as a primary goal for on-boarding while 50 percent of the Total Benchmark Class did identify retention as a primary goal. Spending time on corporate culture and a corporate overview during on-boarding is an engagement activity that impacts retention.
