More and more organizations are hiring employees who work from remote locations instead of commuting into a central workplace. If your organization is one of them, you’re aware of the fact that onboarding for a remote employee can look a bit different than it would otherwise.
Here are some tips and ideas when onboarding remote employees:
- Be prepared in advance. Just like any new hire, first impressions are critical in those first days. Have all hardware the employee needs sent to their location in a timely manner, so it is ready for them for their first day. Have systems, connectivity, software, and login information ready to go.
