Highfield Human Solutions
Our Services - Onboarding
The world of work is more complex than ever before. The demands on a new leader, be it an external or internal hire are exponentially more challenging. The pressure on new leaders to manage change and deliver results is significant:

"40% of new leaders fail to meet expectations of management"
- CEO of Heidrick & Struggles

At the same time, all studies amongst human resources practioners suggest that most organizations' onboarding defaults to "sink or swim".

For forty years, executive search firms have operated with a transactional mindset; delivering the talent but not engaging in the post hire integration. The actions a new leader takes in their first 100 days have a disproportionately high influence on their success or failure.

We believe we should and we have.

At Highfield Human Solutions all client organizations and new leaders are supported with state of the art, customized guiding and coaching to accelerate post hire ROI and contribution.

In concert with Mandrake Human Capital, our career transition sister company, we have created an extraordinary executive acceleration program to enable the incoming leader to:

  • Start their new role with confidence
  • Receive optimal organizational support
  • Handle administration proactively
  • Remove irritants early
  • Increase connectivity with boss, team, and key stakeholders
  • Diagnose the business faster and better
  • Get immersed in the new corporate culture more easily
  • Accelerate their contribution and ROI
  • Build foundation for success


This service is part of our search process.
