Now Onboarding – DDC Growth Takes Off in 2017
August 28, 2017
The DDC Human Resources Team
In case you haven’t heard, 2017 has been one of the busiest years ever at DDC. We are very fortunate to have partnered with several new clients, taken on exciting projects, and welcomed 35 new hires to our team so far this year!
Finding the right talent for our open positions is one of the most critical roles of our HR department here at DDC. When it comes to recruiting, no two searches are the same. Roles, responsibilities, and candidate pools can vary greatly, which is why we work with hiring managers to tailor our approach to meet their specific needs and ensure a positive candidate experience. Regardless though, there are certain intangibles we look for in every new hire we make:
- Enthusiasm and passion
- Comitment to excellence in their work
- Collaborative approach
- Eagerness to learn
Searching for candidates with these traits ensures we are striving to bring in the best talent and add to the diverse, high-performing team that sets DDC apart.
And with this type of growth, it’s critical that we not only find the right people, but that we also onboard them effectively and provide the tools and resources they need to be successful. This is an area we have evaluated recently and made a primary area of focus for the team. A successful onboarding program includes key elements like job-specific training, acclimating to company culture, and fostering key connections with colleagues and clients—all with the goal of empowering our new team members to be highly engaged and successful. As we continued to brainstorm ideas of how we achieve that vision, we honed in on feedback we received from recent hires and current employees. Through this process we identified several opportunities to enhance the program we are very excited to implement.
Overall, we are thrilled with the wealth of talent we’ve brought in, and it’s been incredibly rewarding to see how the diverse experiences and backgrounds have integrated into each team.

We look forward to hearing from you!
