MOVERS & SHAKAS
Hawaii Talent Onboarding Program (HITOP)
*Starting April / May 2022*

Brain drain is a serious challenge in Hawaii, driving some companies to recruit from the mainland. However, when new hires fail to acculturate to Hawaii, businesses suffer costly churn, stunted strategic momentum, reduced productivity and PR / community relations challenges. Movers and Shakas’ Hawaii Talent Onboarding Program (HITOP) will help newcomers learn about Hawaii, increase work effectiveness and life satisfaction, build a social network and become better community members. 

Many businesses have a company orientation, but very few have a community orientation. M&S’s place-based immersion program facilitates the professional, social and cultural transition of employees (and their partners) who are new to Hawaii, boosting talent integration and retention.

For more details, check out this article by Civil Beat or the one-pager overview.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?
