REMOTE ONBOARDING: How to onboard virtually whilst we’re all working from home. For businesses that are continuing to grow during this period of isolation, the onboarding process is arguably more important than ever.
If you’re bringing new members into your team over the next few weeks, here are some steps to take:
Communication is key 📢 To allow a smooth start ensure your candidate has a clear idea of their agenda for the first few days & they know how to prepare.
Set up 💻 Especially now deliveries are likely to be delayed so get your candidates IT kit shipped with plenty of time.
Adapt your current training plan ✍🏻 Short eLearning videos and a PDF of your welcome pack will have your new employee off to a great start.
Meet the team 🙋🏾♂️ Don’t rely on a quick Zoom meeting to introduce your new team member. Ensure they have a full list of contact details for everyone in the team and organise a buddy programme so that your employee has someone to go to with inevitable questions.
We’re all getting used to this new way of working so you’ll likely learn a lot during the process, practice makes perfect! Do you have any tips for #onboarding virtually?
