Did you know that 87% of new employees are not fully committed to a new job for at least the first six months? Employees report ineffective training, unclear guidelines about job responsibilities, lack of interaction or attention from co-workers and management, as primary reasons for leaving an organization. This process can be more frustrating when you introduce new hires to a remote onboarding process.  

Within our organization, Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida, we worked tirelessly to ensure that we did not compromise new hire experience while working remotely during the pandemic. This was accomplished by studying our existing onboarding program experience and discovering ways to integrate new technologies and procedures to ensure that our attorneys, staff, and interns were properly trained. Throughout the forced time away form our office,  we learned how to engage new hires differently and increased overall satisfaction. 

During this session, participants will take away strategies concerning the following objectives

  • Fostering effective interaction between remote staff 
  • Establishing clear guidelines and expectations for job expectations remotely 
  • Avoiding common pitfalls for onboarding  
  • Building best practices for onboarding for your organization  
  • Leveraging feedback from current and former staff

05/13/2021 at 12:30 PM (EDT)   |  60 minutes 87% of new employees are not fully committed to a new job for at least the first six months. Employees report that ineffective training, unclear guidelines about job responsibilities, lack of interaction or attention from co-workers and management, are primary reasons for leaving an agency. It is important to realize that the onboarding process is ongoing and does not just conclude at the end of the first week. Some reports state that the average onboarding may take months. These difficulties and challenges are compounded in a remote environment. This was the case for Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida. When new hires came aboard throughout the course of the pandemic, we confronted this task of remote onboarding head-on. Our goal was to create expectations but not compromise new hire experience while working remotely. Most notably, we created and revitalized our onboarding program by integrating new technologies and procedures to ensure that our attorneys, staff, and interns, were properly trained. Through an 11-month process, we learned how to engage new hires differently and increase overall satisfaction.
