A growing company must efficiently onboard new employees so that they can get up and running quickly. We can create a remote employee onboarding procedure that relieves you of administrative duties while preparing new employees for long-term success.
The transition period can last anywhere from a few weeks to 3+ months, depending on the new hire’s role, the company’s maturity, and many other factors. In some remote organizations, new hires are trained in just two weeks through a framework. However, some researchers suggest that extending the onboarding process to a year may improve employee retention and help new hires feel a part of the team.
How remote onboarding works in practice! A new employee goes through a series of remote meetings, training sessions, and interviews to fully ramp up. Our company rituals, our strategic initiatives, our objectives, and our key results will be covered.We begin by taking them through the following steps:
- Learn about their direct team, the role, and their goals by doing a list of tasks.
- We ask them to create accounts in all of our company’s productivity, security, HR, and communication tools.
- Then they write a welcome letter to share with the company. They’ll post it in Confluence, our internal knowledge base platform, as well as in our company Slack channel.
- We help them schedule one-on-one meetings with their manager and important cross-functional partners so they can get to know everyone they will be working with.
- We also publish a list of important articles in our internal knowledge base.
We set up an introductory lunch with the team members who work in their same office. We also connect them with remote coworkers in other offices so that they can exchange phone numbers and meet each other. Next, we encourage everyone to add working hours to their calendar so other hubs can see when meetings can be booked.
Onboarding is a series of activities that help new hires meet their teammates and learn about the company’s methods, rituals, and tools. When a new hire will be working remotely instead of in the office, the onboarding process is the same. An onboarding program offers employees the chance to adjust to a new environment. Employers can use this time to share all of the information that will assist new team members in becoming successful in their roles. The onboarding process can be formal or informal (and typically, companies use both methods to ensure a successful onboarding). Formal onboarding typically includes workshops, training sessions, video calls, and exercises. It can also include shadowing other team members, getting to know different stakeholders, and learning the company’s conventions and approach to problem-solving through observation and impromptu coaching from the manager.
