Virtual Employee Onboarding: 7 Steps to Success


Employee onboarding is a process that involves introducing new employees to their new work environment and culture. It is one of the most critical steps you can take in the hiring process as it is all about inclusion, and providing the tools needed by the employee to become a dynamic team member.  

So, does that change when you are working virtually? With many people now working from home, or between their home and the office, many businesses may find it hard to manage their onboarding programs.

Getting this step right ensures that new employees feel welcomed as part of the team, get to know their colleagues, understand the organization's policies, regulations and give you a better chance at retaining your new hire.

Through the process, new employees can learn and understand their job descriptions and set clear objectives for the first few months at work. They get a better understanding of their new company’s culture and values to create meaningful and professional relationships with their new team – even if they have never met them in person!

Employee onboarding plays an integral role in employee retention and helps new employees feel welcomed within your organization. Many companies have some type of onboarding experience, but few employees would refer to it as great.

The employee onboarding process is the first step in welcoming new team members and can often make or break the likelihood they will stay. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, employee turnover can be as much as 50% in the first 18 months of employment.

A successful employee onboarding process ensures new team members gain clarity on their roles and what is expected of them, and prevents them from leaving as soon as they can!

Managing Remote Workforces with Strong Leaders


Along with the many changes that COVID-19 has brought into our lives, the way that we live and work has most likely been forever altered.

To increase safety, reduce risks and adhere to government regulations, many companies have shifted most of their work venues from the physical office to their workers' homes. Some have set up a hybrid model, where employees rotate and work part of the time at the office and part of the time at home.

Initially, this was viewed as a temporary solution that would continue only during the time of the pandemic. However, more and more, many
leaders are seeing the cost savings that having a remote work staff can bring. Thus, they are viewing having employees work from home as a permanent measure.
