Onboarding Remote Employees

While many employers have adapted to letting employees work from home in response to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, an often overlooked aspect of telecommuting is how to onboard new hires when everyone is working remotely.

Employers are being challenged with the task of onboarding new employees who might start their new role in a completely remote or virtual fashion. This includes acclimating remote hires to their new roles, setting clear guidelines for performance and company culture, and sharing the necessary knowledge for a new employee to succeed within a remote environment. Onboarding processes are important for setting new hires up for success within your company, and they help build a positive reputation for your company among talented job seekers. An effective technology experience and remote onboarding plan can be the key to successfully enabling new hires to become quickly acclimated and fruitful in their new role.

To help with this process, we have created a downloadable document, Onboarding Remote Employees, that equips your business and HR team with tips, information, checklists, and customizable forms to ensure new remote employees have everything they need to hit the ground running.

This 58-page document includes information on how to do the following:

  • Plan the Technology
  • Set a Foundation
  • Have a Successful First Week
  • Follow Through with New Hires
  • Evaluate the Process

We’ve included helpful forms that can be customized to your business, such as a Remote Anti-harassment Policy, Telecommuting Policy, Telecommuting Authorization, Employment Eligibility Verification, Direct Deposit Form, and more.
