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!

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that change, and uncertainty is never too far away. With increased working from home, and social distancing efforts in place, many of us have had to take our plans for training and development back to the drawing board - redesigning them to work virtually. 

Virtual Instructor Led Training (vILT) was new for some, but it provided many opportunities for businesses to continue with their learning and development plans, when traditional methods were not available. Over this transition, many have found that their virtual training didn’t go as smoothly as they had hoped - this is where a Virtual Producer comes in.

Working with a Virtual Training Producer who is familiar with the delivery platform and proficient at managing live sessions can take good training and make it great!

Here's a deeper look at what a Virtual Producer does.

Why Every Virtual Training Session Needs a Virtual Training Producer

Posted by Rachael Jones on Jan 20, 2021 9:30:00 AM

Why Every Virtual Training Session Needs a Virtual Training Producer

The way we work and learn has drastically changed over the last 12 months. Instead of on-site education sessions, meetings, or conferences - organizations have moved to Virtual Instructor Led Training (vILT) to continue their learning initiatives. Companies and individuals save both time and money taking part in these virtual training sessions and allow them to continue learning in the ‘new normal’.

Of course, that's only if they were done properly. When poorly produced and maintained, these Virtual training sessions are not useful. In fact, they can be the subject of ridicule and anger from those who invested in them. The result is low engagement, and a program that fails, despite having the best of intentions.

So how do you fix it?
