The last year has changed how we do many things, including the way employers recruit and onboard new staff. Moving away from face-to-face meetings, recruiters and hiring managers are assessing candidates remotely. Similarly, onboarding new staff has moved beyond an in-person greeting with a warm handshake, with new starters unable to meet everyone in the office during their first few days. Familiarizing new employees in their new role, helping them get to know colleagues and processes, has taken on a new look and feel. Ensuring that new staff do not feel isolated in their own home offices has become a priority. Collaboration and onboarding tools are now a necessity.
