Onboard New Hires Faster and Improve Team Efficiency

A major challenge facing all aerospace and defense organizations is an aging workforce. In addition to the growing knowledge gap between new hires and multidecade veterans, the industry is also faced with a growing trend in talent turnover as younger generations enter the workforce. It is imperative to get new hires ramped up as quickly as possible to meet demanding business dynamics. 


Key challenges include: 


  • Veteran engineers are retiring, and new hires with less experience that turn over more frequently are replacing them, rendering the traditional development approach insufficient
  • There is a lack of understanding regarding current engineering resources, including skills, roles/responsibilities, and individual workflows
  • Essential talent improvement projects lack prioritization against ongoing work, contributing to ongoing inefficiencies
  • There is a lack of resources or expertise to manage the learning and development technical elements
