The current onboarding process isn’t cutting it anymore for some companies.

With the push for remote working that has been occurring for the past year and a half, employers need to recreate the process in order to fit the new landscape of working.

It’s helpful to set up introduction meetings with people with whom a new hire will be working to ease them into the environment.
