The global health crisis has forever changed the way we think about and perform work. Perhaps the most noticeable change, however, is that it’s dramatically altered where we perform our day-to-day tasks. The traditional office will continue to be rethought in the coming months, but one thing is for certain—hiring managers need to shift the way they think about onboarding to be more inclusive of remote employees. First, geographical restrictions need to be removed. Some new hires won’t be able to come into the office to sign paperwork and meet the team, so digital analogs should be built in their place. How onboarding is monitored and how success is measured should also be taken into consideration. Benchmarks should be set with remote workers in mind, and data collection and analysis should inform your decisions. Flexibility and convenience should be prioritized when rethinking remote onboarding, with on-demand training and asynchronous communication at the forefront.
