HR Tech Outlook Europe | Wednesday, June 16, 2021

The first day at a new job may be both terrifying and exciting. One does not know who their coworkers will be or where they will go for lunch, but they can be enthused about what they will learn or their prospects for advancement.

FREMONT, CA: When it comes to new employees, onboarding encompasses much more than just work training - it is the first proper interaction with new team members. Many more professions have become remote as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, making it more necessary than ever to take the necessary steps to integrate people into an organization despite never having face-to-face interaction with them in a physical location.

One can ensure the success of their new recruits by implementing an efficient onboarding procedure. Having said that, developing a program that has a beneficial impact might be difficult in distant settings.

Letts explore key ways of retaining a human element to your onboarding processes while recruiting remotely:

More Importance to Pre-Boarding

The first day at a new job may be both terrifying and exciting. One does not know who their coworkers will be or where they will go for lunch, but they can be enthused about what they will learn or their prospects for advancement.

However, when things seem more distant, one's anxieties and hope may shift. Even if one uses modern collaborative tools, they may feel alienated from their team when they begin working remotely.

Creating a pre-boarding package for new hires is one approach to assist them and make them feel welcome and less overwhelmed by it all. This might include anything from a welcome email to company-branded merchandise. Give them a clear understanding of who will be on their team and to whom they will report. It is also critical to inform them of who they may contact if they have any questions.

Communication Is the Key

Some new employees may be working alone in their environment and feeling isolated from the firm due to a lack of regular communication. This is especially important given that they are unlikely to have met any of their coworkers in person.

It is critical to schedule regular video conferences with important personnel in the company during their first few days, as face-to-face screen time can considerably help in reducing feelings of isolation and creating trust. There are numerous powerful solutions available for this purpose, with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Skype among the front runners in the video collaboration sector.
