HEOR highlights from 2022
2022 was an exciting year of growth and development for HEOR – with quite a few firsts!
We grew from about 100 employees in December 2021 to about 150 in December 2022 – adding expertise across all our teams. We strengthened our market access and value communication service lines by creating specialist teams led by experienced directors, and we established our Consulting Centre of Excellence. We added a design team and started the year with a refreshed brand, same HEOR with a sophisticated new look to complement our creative and innovative personality.
In May we opened the doors to our new Bicester office to give our teams space to collaborate, meet and work together. It has proved a popular location with some colleagues in most days of the week, and other joining occasionally for workshops, brainstorming sessions or just for the company and banter of an office environment.
July saw our graduates successfully complete the first HEOR Graduate Training Programme. All our graduates were offered, and accepted, associate roles across the business. In September a new intake of graduates started their first rotation in their chosen technical team.
October and November were busy months as we launched our new website and prepared for our first ever exhibition booth at ISPOR! It was quite a challenge, but we made a splash at ISPOR with an amazing booth and an enthusiastic team of delegates who fully embraced the experience. We presented 10 posters and had two awarded top 5%!
2022 saw us publish our research in 22 peer-reviewed journals, across many disciplines including metabolic disease, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease and others.
It was quite a year for HEOR, with lots of activity. However, despite the growth and change we still hold true to our ethos and principles of value and respect. We invest in our people, they are at the heart of everything we do, and we are proud of everything we have achieved as a team this year.
After a well-earned rest over the festive period, we start 2023 with renewed vigour and look forward to continuing our trajectory, embracing more firsts and most importantly doing a job we love every day.
