This paper will present a pioneering hiring-integration (HI) program. First sector will illustrate a novel 12-month graduate trainee program (GTP) - sourcing, selecting and hiring rightful candidates for design position. Second sector wraps up the program with a full fledge integration program which will be the core of this paper. Custom curricula comprise 3 phases with 127 courses 100% internally designed, developed and instructed. The combined total training hours stands at 368. Operations of the HI Program is championed and owned by a voluntary 'Technical Integration Taskforce'. The results - 4-year average of 117 new hires ramped with average instructor effectiveness of 80%, course effectiveness of 81.5% and use of training of 88.75%.
