Virtual Employee Onboarding: 7 Steps to Success


Employee onboarding is a process that involves introducing new employees to their new work environment and culture.

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.

Most successful managers can tell you that there is a big correlation between happy workers and hard workers. Increased workloads, distrusting managers, and unclear goals within organizations have created work environments in which employees feel overworked, undervalued, and disengaged. Employers often have the misconception that paying their employees well will produce great joy and motivation that will result in better work. However, this is not usually the case. Many employers may be surprised to learn that money is not always the biggest motivating factor when it comes to productivity and happiness.
