Virtual Onboarding: Empower and Engage New Employees in a Hybrid World
September 12, 2022
How can organizations communicate their culture and values effectively and meaningfully when their teams are not physically under the same roof? How can HR help new hires feel acclimated, acknowledged, and empowered even when they may not meet anyone face-to-face for months—or perhaps ever? How can companies continue to build social capital, foster connection and collaboration, and further innovation among employees working remotely or in hybrid settings?
In this article on the Association for Talent Development (ATD) blog, we discuss how virtual onboarding programs that are delivered via a social and collaborative platform give organizations the insight and ability to track the progress of their employees in powerful ways. Digital learning tools allow leaders to follow the advancement of a new hire, understand if they need assistance in specific areas, and intercede to provide support as needed.
