Hiring and Retention Practices

Giga's HR process is a standard yet effective process. They try to carry a bench of JR to Mid level engineers, roughly 20/30 FTE, but due to demand, this is becoming difficult. Giga implements a 60-day onboarding plan for all new employees. They created an internal platform that gamify the onboarding process, making it fun for the employee. Giga will provide all equipment required by the employee and client and ensure each system is configured to Giga's security requirements. Giga also does a great job keeping the teams engaged and heard. Giga has HR resources in each location and is responsible for the growth and happiness of the employee. Monthly meet-ups, end-of-the-year celebrations, and other interactions, virtual or in-person make sure Giga team members stay for the long haul.
