Custom New Hire Onboarding
A Fortune 200 human resource software company wanted to partner with a training vendor to develop and deliver a custom new hire onboarding program. The intent of the program was to attract top talent from college campuses, recruiting them for software engineering, IT operations and IT infrastructure roles and positions.
After several months of meetings with various training companies, they had not found a vendor that could provide an adequate solution. Many vendors proposed solutions that were too long, too expensive or too cumbersome. At this point, an employee in the procurement office remembered how easy it was work with Cprime Learning. The senior director for global talent acquisition then contacted Cprime Learning’s enterprise programs team and together sketched out an IT graduate new hire onboarding program that could meet their needs and budget. After presenting the CIO with a proposal showcasing the program elements, Cprime Learning gained approval and began developing two new hire onboarding programs for the client.
The primary goal of the client’s new hire onboarding program was to accelerate the development of recent college graduates with IT and computer science degrees to become effective and productive employees as quickly as possible by giving them specific technology and business skills training.
Cprime Learning Onboarding Programs
Cprime Learning created two, six-week onboarding programs that would run simultaneously. They taught the graduates Agile and DevOps practices, and provided hands-on experience in tools used within the client’s IT department, enabling new hires to be “Day-one ready.” During the program, students completed assessments to track their understanding and success and worked on a case study in parallel to promote collaboration among themselves and prove their abilities.
The secondary goal of the program was to assign the recent graduates into different teams within the company. To help facilitate this, students were grouped into project teams at the beginning of the program. The teams’ ultimate task was to develop and deploy a product. It was left up to the project teams to determine how to create the product. At the close of the program, teams completed a final exam, presented their finished product to the organization’s IT manager, celebrated with a social hour. This entire process helped the IT managers choose which new hires would fit well in their teams from both a technical and cultural aspect.
Employee Preparedness & New Hire Retention
At the completion of the Cprime Learning contract, the organization made a decision to license the content for the new hire onboarding program. They run the program multiple times each year, in various locations across the globe.
The current measurable results of the new hire onboarding program include but are not limited to:
- 16% increase in new hire retention
- 54% greater new hire productivity
- 17% increase in revenue per full-time employee
In summary, Cprime Learning and the client worked together to create a detailed, hands-on program to solve issues such as lack of real-world preparedness of college graduates entering their company and new hire retention.
