HR Tech Outlook | Wednesday, September 15, 2021

While it will be difficult, one should try hard to stay on top of all the nitty-gritty paperwork in the days and weeks leading up to the new hire's start date. This not only helps one stay organized, but it also shows the new employee that you're excited to have them on board.

Fremont, CA: Companies everywhere are embracing the opportunity to look for more diverse talent, irrespective of geographical constraints, now that remote work models have entered the mainstream. However, as companies broaden their search pool, HR and hiring managers (as well as new hires) face unique onboarding challenges.

Here are some takeaways to help employers successfully onboard new hires with ease:

Facilitates Paperwork

While it will be difficult, one should try hard to stay on top of all the nitty-gritty paperwork in the days and weeks leading up to the new hire's start date. This not only helps one stay organized, but it also shows the new employee that you're excited to have them on board.

Finally, this should keep the employee informed of the final steps of the hiring process and help answer any lingering questions about personal information and contracts prior to their first day.

While one is gathering their information, give them access to all office equipment so they feel prepared and at ease on their first day of work.

Preparing Game Plan

Now it is an excellent time to assess one's current onboarding process and make changes to make it more streamlined and virtual-friendly. Consider creating a list that explains role expectations, scheduling, and deadlines, as well as complete access to existing projects to obtain a greater understanding of company outputs to better set new hires up for success.

Set aside some time to walk new employees through software tools, virtual files, and apps, with the goal of supporting them collaboratively via screen sharing and video calls.
