A healthy professional relationship with employees starts with the onboarding process. Companies that take their employee onboarding seriously can easily develop a positive work culture that ensures higher engagement, retention and productivity. Since 91% of new hires consider quitting within the first month if a job doesn’t live up to their expectations, it is safe to say that onboarding can make or break the talent acquisition process.
Onboarding challenges have increased in magnitude with the onset of remote and hybrid work environments brought about by the pandemic. Things like face-to-face introductions, lunch meetings, in-person training, etc., have become almost non-existent in the new normal. This makes it harder for employers to welcome new employees and make them familiar and comfortable with their organization’s culture.
In this blog, we’ll explore some remote onboarding best practices that can help you ensure high retention and organizational success.
