1:25pm-2:00pm Redefining Onboarding for Virtual and Hybrid Teams

General Session
Onboarding new team members used to mean in-person meetings, shadowing other employees from place to place, and lots of pizza. But how do you create a team when the new employee won’t share a workspace with some—or all—of their teammates? How will they integrate with the team, build relationships and gain the knowledge they need to be productive and contribute as quickly—or quicker—than they did in the office?
In this session, we will look at the challenges of bringing new people into an existing team that is remote or hybrid in order to speed up employee integration. Your onboarding process is an important step in ensuring your new hires become successful and productive long-term employees. As the world continues to shift to the remote/hybrid model, the changes you make today will serve you well in the future.
You will learn:
  • The 4 most common challenges of onboarding new team members
  • How remote and hybrid work impacts teambuilding
  • The three factors that negatively influence onboarding, and how to overcome them
  • Maintaining effective remote team communication
