The survey has shown a bit of anxiety on our job security. Like other industries, laying off people has been the norm due to the pandemic. Many are worried about losing their jobs. Globally, 46% of all MSLs surveyed are concerned about job security, 37% are not and 16% are not sure. Whereas, about 50% of MSL managers were not worried at all.
It is human nature to feel the pain and anxiety of what is happening globally and be worried about the future, but the MSL role in my opinion will survive this and will always be needed to provide HCPs with the latest clinical information to help their patients. My hope is that this pandemic will subside slowly and we will find a cure and a vaccine so we can return to our normal life.
