Get the Most out of Your Technical New Hires
Technical talent is more expensive than it has ever been. Hiring recent Computer Science graduates is one way many companies save on developer salaries and recruiting costs.
But new hires and recent college graduates need to be trained and onboarded. Doing this in an efficient and effective manner is the difference between them being a good investment or not.
Onboarding and New Hire Development Program
Getting your new hires to be productive is complicated – technical skills, soft skills, organizational structure, job tools, and processes contribute to this complexity.
Our onboarding programs cut down the time it takes to move developers from new hire status to productivity status. Let our team take on some of this work off your plate and let your senior developers get back to work. DevelopIntelligence can design and run learning programs that will best fit new developers’ needs.
A new hire development program success story
For an example of a successful New Hire Development Program approach in action, check out our case study below.
As a large UK telecommunications company expanded into the US market, the hiring managers found it difficult to find candidates with the right mix of telecom experience and software development experience needed to integrate their OSS solution. At the time, the market offered highly experienced telecom engineers or highly experience Java engineers – not both. As a result, the company found itself with a productivity problem. It was taking the newly hired employees twice as long as expected to ramp-up, learn the product and the domain, and effectively integrate the company’s solution. The result was lost revenue and a burdened team. To solve this problem, we created and implemented a New Hire Development program; within six weeks, we were able to significantly reduce the time to productivity of new hires, allowing the company to realize a fully-loaded bill-rate 12 weeks after a person was hired.
