Onboarding New Hires, Virtually

2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: This session will show you how to design a virtual new-hire onboarding process to ensure that new hires feel welcome and are prepared to join the organization.

In this global economy, many organizations have far-flung employees who struggle to feel a part of the organization. Knowing that an effective onboarding process is key to keeping new hires in the first 90 days, it is both crucial and economical to use your virtual platform to welcome these employees. This session will share a template for a successful virtual onboarding process which will help your new hires feel they are a valued and welcome addition to the organization. You will learn how to:

·         Determine which elements of a new hire orientation can be successfully delivered virtually and which cannot.

·         Identify methods to develop engaging, collaborative onboarding activities so that new hires
          feel they are a welcome part of the team.

·         Create complimentary and compelling communications for remote new hires to assist them in coming aboard.

·         Follow a proven checklist of virtual onboarding elements.
