10 Remote Onboarding Best Practices to Skyrocket Productivity and Retention

20% of your total staff turnover happens during the first 6 weeks of employment. If you’re not onboarding well, you’re increasing costs. 

Onboarding is an intense process with a new hire needing to complete around 54 tasks. Remote onboarding comes with a unique set of challenges when compared with its in-office counterpart. 

New remote hires need the right tools, resources, and technology to integrate into a company’s culture. They also need to build a rapport with their managers and colleagues. If your HR management can’t help them achieve this, you risk losing top talent and racking up expenses to do so – upwards of $30,000 to $45,000 for each replacement. 

Creating a refined onboarding process can prevent this from happening and rather boost employee productivity and retention. In this Process Street post, we’re giving you 10 remote onboarding best practices to help you get started.

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.

That’s what we’re taking a look at in this Process Street article.

7 Must-Know Strategies for Pre-boarding New Hires like a Pro

Strategies for pre-boarding new hiresThe first few months of employment are crucial – we get that! Well, what if I told you that it’s not the first few months you should be worried about.

Don’t get me wrong – those months are important, but you really need to think about the days BEFORE your new hire is welcomed to the team.

Yes, that’s right, folks. You need to start onboarding before your new hire has even arrived.

Please put your hands together for your new best friend: Pre-boarding.

Like with most things, preparation is the key to a successful onboarding experience. Pre-boarding is your prep time that helps you gather everything you need before your new hire’s first day. It empowers you to set a good impression and helps your new hire understand what they can expect throughout the whole onboarding (and employment process).

Long story short – if your pre-boarding is disorganized, you’re already off to a bad start and increasing the already staggering chance that this new hire will leave before their first three months of employment. I’m going to help ensure that doesn’t happen in this Process Street article.
