Training is a critical component of staff development in companies big and small. For a multinational biopharmaceutical corporation like AbbVie, a company that owns multiple brands and businesses including Allergan Aesthetics, training is more important than ever to foster teamwork, improve performance, and develop new skills and knowledge.
