Focus on the most important activities
Onboarding typically begins with the HR department and likely an internal trainer. But make sure that your new remote employees are also spending time with other team members by setting up 1-to-1 meetings, specifically with their managers. This will have a significant impact on the success of your onboarding program, so educate your managers on the importance of making those 1-to-1 meetings happen as often as possible.
Use the right tools and technologies
Now is the time to rely on digital tools, specifically those that support social engagement and collaboration. Tools will play a significant role in the success of onboarding remote employees.
