Onboarding New Employees to a Remote Work Environment

A positive onboarding experience is particularly important for newly hired employees working remotely. See our guide for hiring managers to help navigate the challenges inherent in remote onboarding.

The New Hire's Experience

Welcoming new employees is a collaborative effort involving both central HR and the local hiring department. Learn more.

Checklists for Managers

We’ve designed a series of checklists that provide a step-by-step guide for managers and DLCs to navigate the onboarding process. Learn more.

More in Human Resources

We provide resources for new hires on our New Employees site, as well as guidance for new senior leaders at the Institute on our Onboarding for Senior Leaders site.

Does your DLC have a mentoring program? Consider creating one as part of your onboarding plan. Human Resources can help: See our guide to creating a mentoring program in your DLC.

Onboarding plans get off to the right start when performance development is integrated into the process from the beginning. See our performance development support for managers.
