6 Benefits of Onboarding Employees Remotely During the Covid-19 Pandemic with ShareDocs HRDMS



Over the last year many organizations had to adapt to working remotely owing to the global pandemic. While organizations and functions that were already partially working from home were quick to adapt to the new normal, some functions like the HR teams had to re-think the way forward.


With no physical office to welcome the new employee, most pre-joining and onboarding tasks had to be done over emails and calls. New employee documentation and orientation were mismanaged due to missed follow-ups as it was mostly handled manually. The HR team was grappling with a backlog, leading to delays and the new employee had a not-so-good first impression.


One of our clients - a leading consumer goods company operating out of 12 major Indian cities with a talent pool of 10000 employees, faced similar and more challenges.
