About us

Our Story

Leveraging 17 years of experience in the life sciences recruiting industry & marketing, our founder, Chris Frew, saw a paradigm shift happening in the talent market that was fundamentally changing how employers needed to attract and hire their employees.  As the biotech industry continued to grow, skills gaps widened, and the demand for talent increased, employers were faced with more workforce challenges than ever before, and traditional sales, marketing and community-based principles were becoming more important for talent acquisition teams to adopt in order to compete in the market.

Workforce Genetics was founded in 2018 as a unique recruiting and talent solutions firm on a mission to help employers address this changing world of work and win the war for talent.  The executive and scientific search division provides unparalleled recruiting services to venture-backed and growth stage biotechnology companies, and our BioBuzz Media division has become the industry’s leading employer branding platform for companies who want to stand out as an employer of choice and access a highly targeted audience of biotech job seekers.

We’re not stopping there.  Stay tuned for more impactful solutions on the horizon for 2022.

Our team, at your service.
