From High Rise to Home Office: How to Virtually Onboard New Talent

Posted on March 2020

​For many German companies in the Financial Services sector, these are testing times and uncertainty is high. Some are working from home for the first time in their career, others might be more used to it already. Nonetheless, with the full organization likely to work remotely for an undetermined time frame, new challenges arise.

Securing business-critical talent takes time and effort. If you have already succeeded and a new-hire is scheduled to start at your organization shortly, delaying their start date by this crisis could be risking them finding another role with a competitor. So, during this period of most of Germany in lockdown, you might be facing the unusual task of having to remotely onboard a new employee.

How can you ensure the new employee has a positive experience of your company during their initial onboarding when you can’t show them around the office, take them out for lunch or have them shadow other team members? And how can you help them transition back to the office when everything returns to business-as-usual?

We have put together this guide on how to onboard employees remotely to help you organize and plan a comprehensive onboarding program using virtual resources.
