Does your onboarding process leave new hires feeling isolated, or inspired? 

Managing the onboarding of an asynchronous employee is a balancing act. You have to educate them on your company’s processes, policies, culture, and tools, without overwhelming them with information.

You also have to give them space to self-manage without making them feel alone—even if they are working remotely.

Leaning too far one way or the other can result in a poor onboarding experience, which leads to slow productivity ramp-up, weak employee engagement, and higher attrition. 

But with a clear and thorough checklist to follow, you can build an engaging and effective plan that results in:

  • Faster ramp-up in productivity
  • Closer alignment with company goals
  • Stronger employee engagement
  • Longer employee retention

Use this guide to build an onboarding plan that makes async workers feel informed, connected, and excited about their new role.
