With the pandemic ushering in new workplace dynamics, a comprehensive onboarding strategy tailored to virtual environments is critical. It's a chance to lay the groundwork for the knowledge, connections and sense of belonging that will set an employee up for success throughout their tenure.
The past year was one of ongoing change, redirection and flexibility. Insurers faced many challenges and had to evolve their ways of operating, communicating and servicing customers. As we enter 2021, priorities are continuing to shift and companies are adjusting their talent strategies to be most impactful.
Keeping insurance organizations running smoothly is more important than ever, and an experienced staffing firm can be a valuable resource for filling talent gaps or handling special projects. As organizations embrace the hybrid staffing model, there are several things we recommend to help develop a strong partnership with your interim staffing partner and, ultimately, ensure the success of any project. Most of these tips can apply to internal special project teams, as well.
Work environments have shifted dramatically in the past six months and human resources leaders are tasked with evaluating new team compositions, productivity measures, hiring techniques and more. As insurers work to understand the short- and long-term impacts of the pandemic on their teams, people analytics can play an important role in making informed talent decisions.
As business continues remotely for the foreseeable future, insurers can no longer delay filling critical positions. However, onboarding employees from afar may seem like a daunting task. If you have a new employee joining your team while operating in a virtual environment, it’s paramount to have a well-thought-out remote onboarding plan in place. By being intentional about your onboarding and orientation process, you’ll be able to successfully welcome new employees to your organization and set them up to thrive.
