The HR Manager’s Complete Guide to Virtual Onboarding

Employees are 18 times more likely to feel committed to a company when they have a good onboarding experience. Yet, 93% of employers refuse to admit that onboarding experience affects employee retention at all.

Mentoring New Employees: The Secret To Reduced Churn?

Think back to a time when you stepped into unfamiliar territory. Can you remember how intimidating it was? That’s the dilemma each new employee faces.

Mentors are responsible for offering a support base for the new hire to get settled in their role quicker. These mentors use their past experiences to offer sound guidance, helping build the new employee’s confidence and skills from the get-go.

Everything You Need to Know About Onboarding Remote Employees

What was once the exception has now become a common workplace model throughout the world. Since 2005, remote working has increased by 159%. Without a doubt, those numbers saw a massive jump with the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak. 

This new way of working (and living) is here to stay. Why? Remote work can offer increased employee productivity, reduced churn, and decreased absenteeism, and much more. But these benefits are only within reach when you’ve set up a good remote workplace. 

One way of enforcing an effective remote workplace is during the onboarding phase. You can familiarize new hires with the correct resources and processes from the get-go. Just as onboarding is a good way to integrate your employees into a remote working environment, it can also be your biggest downfall if not conducted properly. 

That’s why, in this Process Street article, I’m taking you through everything you need to know about onboarding employees in a remote environment.
