The onboarding of new members of an organisation can be a challenge in the best of times. We all know what our first day in a new job feels like… the unfamiliar surroundings coupled with new faces and unknown technology. It can make for an overwhelming combination.
These factors can often be more pronounced when employees need to be onboarded remotely as part of a virtual, multi-locational team. Unsurprisingly, one of the key danger points for organisations is the first year of a new hire’s employment. Research shows that when onboarding is done poorly, it can result in low engagement levels, inter-team conflict, low motivation, poor performance and high levels of staff turnover.
This workshop looks at some of the best practices to ensure smooth transitions for both the new team member and their manager. We provide practical input to help embed these practices in order to achieve a great experience for everyone involved.
Drawing on case studies and the latest social psychology and workplace research, the training is designed to offer managers and leaders knowledge, skills and the mindset shifts needed to connect with new employees and build the constructive relationships remotely that support inclusion, create alignment and produce real results in a virtual world.
This course has 2 x 90 minute sessions. There is required pre-work in advance and work with colleagues after the sessions. You must be able to commit to all elements.
