Boehringer Ingelheim’s sales force is the company’s direct link with clients. Members of this highly qualified team implement the strategies and concepts developed by the marketing department in their discussions and interactions with healthcare providers. The core of Boehringer Ingelheim’s sales communications is scientific information about our innovative products, disease management and health outcomes. We offer a range of customised event concepts that respond to client needs in a targeted fashion, while our close partnership with external medical science colleagues allows us to provide doctors with a comprehensive range of support. Most employees have a degree in a natural science discipline, or a background in economic science, supplemented with training as a pharmaceutical representative. While this is certainly a good foundation for working in the Boehringer Ingelheim sales team, it is not a prerequisite, as all field staff receive in-depth product training, which means they are able to speak to healthcare providers in their language and be accepted as credible and reliable business partners over the long-term.
