We know that the potential for having to onboard new staff in a virtual setting poses unique challenges.
In the current climate, schools and organizations are now needing to make plans that account for the potential to onboard new staff virtually. We also know that onboarding (i.e. helping new hires adjust to the social and performance aspects of their new job quickly and smoothly) is a critically important tool as it pertains to staff satisfaction and retention.
We’ve heard from many of you about these concerns and at EdFuel, it is important to us to provide responsive support to the education sector whenever and however we can. To that end, we can provide direct support on best practices in onboarding and where and how to shift to best practices in virtual onboarding to ensure teachers, and ultimately students, are set up for success.
In addition, EdFuel also offers Virtual Teacher Job Fairs and Virtual Recruitment and Hiring Support. If you are interested in these opportunities please contact email@example.com for more information.
Virtual Onboarding Support Offerings
Assess strengths and areas for growth within current onboarding strategies and create recommendations for improvement with a specific focus on virtual priorities
Onboarding System Design & Implementation
Develop and implement a comprehensive virtual onboarding strategy that considers diversity, equity, and inclusion. This virtual onboarding strategy can include all three phases of onboarding (cultivation, orientation, and management), identifying differentiated onboarding strategies for key subsets of staff (i.e. staff where attrition might be high), and aligning systems to ensure success for mid-year hires (whether virtual or in a more traditional setting).
Design and implement a system to maintain contact with high quality candidates and/or new hires (i.e. scheduled email blasts, calendar of phone calls, staff ambassadors, communication tracking, virtual “welcome” meetings, etc.)
Virtual Onboarding Workshops
Design and facilitate virtual workshops highlighting national best practices and case studies in effective virtual onboarding strategies
Additional Opportunities & Resources
