Top tips for the best remote onboarding

By | Remote Working

Remote work has grown 173% since 2005, 11% faster than the rest of the workforce. Over half of the workforce holds a job that could be done, at least partially, from home—and employers are increasingly allowing it on a more permanent basis as a result of the required remote working due to Covid-19. In addition to reducing health risks, remote work has been shown to increase productivity, decrease absenteeism, decrease turnover, and save money. As more employers realize these benefits, many expect remote work to become more common after the dust settles from COVID-19. As a result, remote onboarding programs are being implemented in businesses all over the world.

But, as we’ve come to see, remote workers have different needs than office workers. They need the right office set-up to perform their jobs, but within the confines of their home. They can’t walk down the hall to a colleague’s desk to ask a question, so they need tools that enable communication. And because they don’t physically come into an office, so they need to know when they’re expected to be available virtually. Their employee experience is different, and they need unique programs to support them. This begins with a strong employee onboarding program.

A good onboarding program is key to getting your new employee up and running in no time. Although, don’t rush it. A good onboarding process can take months.
