AlphaGroup’s culture is the inspiration for a positive career move

April 26, 2022

April marks the first anniversary of Beth Sesler, PhD, CMPP, Vice President, Scientific Director of AlphaScientia, joining the AlphaGroup of medical communications agencies. But Beth knew long before her first day that AlphaGroup would provide the type of culture where she could thrive.

“When I was interviewing with AlphaGroup’s Managing Director, Mike Smith, he shared that he wants the company to be a place where I am running to vs running away from a specific job,” Beth said. “Mike’s meaningful words are why I accepted the job and enjoy coming to work every day.”

Beth has worked in the medical communications industry for 22 years. Having worked remotely for the past 12 years, getting to know team members has been a challenge. AlphaGroup is the first company where Beth has had extensive face-to-face contact with team members thanks to the dynamic culture that encourages employees to get to know one another as more than just a face on a screen.

Through frequent Teams meetings and the company’s “Great Escape” to South Carolina in September 2021, Beth has built valuable relationships with her team members and those working in other AlphaGroup departments. Getting to know the various members of AlphaGroup is what Beth says makes working remotely that much more accessible and pleasant.

Medical communications is a deadline- and precision-oriented career. Beth practices martial arts, SCUBA dives, and tends to her garden to maintain a positive mindset. These well-developed hobbies allow Beth to disconnect and, quite literally, “stop and smell the roses.”

“Beth is a vibrant member of our scientific communications team that continues to grow under her leadership,” Smith said. “Her industry tenure and expertise are critical components for meeting our pillars for success. We are grateful for her contributions that continue to strengthen our corporate culture.”
