Onboarding remote employees involves more than just conducting a new hire orientation. Even with the best of circumstances, adding an employee to the team means ensuring that HR and supervising managers are working ahead to preemptively eradicate as many challenges as possible. In addition to administrative tasks like enrollments and equipment set-up, working through abstract facets like corporate culture, employee expectations, team attributes, performance goals, workflows and work styles can be challenging, particularly in a remote environment. It’s no wonder that onboarding employees remotely presents its own inherent set of challenges to traditional onboarding.

One of the most important contributions any human resource professional or hiring manager can make when onboarding a new employee remotely is to deliver positive contributions right away and never under-emphasize the importance of communication. This 3.5-hour interactive seminar focuses on the four Cs of remote employee onboarding: Compliance, Clarification, Culture and Connection to ensure your organization is onboarding employees in a way that sets up both the employee and the organization for success.

With this seminar, learn to take your organization to a new level of effectiveness by improving and integrating all new employee touchpoints––from recruiting and orientation to that first day of working remotely and beyond. Learn to optimize employee engagement while increasing organizational productivity, satisfaction and retention for your organization’s remote employees.

What You'll Learn

  • Understand virtual onboarding and the difference between onboarding and orientation.
  • Discover ways to ensure all remote working requirements, expectations and equipment have been set up before your employee’s first day.

  • Adopt best practices to manage virtual employees and teams.
