Back in mid-March we spoke to Emerald Works' CEO John Yates and Frontline Pedagogy Lead, Laura Watkin, about their experience of starting senior roles remotely. This week on the Mind Tools L&D podcast, Gemma talks to freshly recruited team members from the same organisations - Emerald Works team member, David Sharkey and People Coordinator at Front, Simi Manik - on their remote onboard experiences.
- what remote onboarding involves - the positives and negatives
- how it's different to joining a company "in person"
- what organisations might consider doing to best support remote newbies
Gemma's tomato-based factoids came from James Wong's book, How to eat better.
Simi recommended the book Natives: Race and Class in the Ruins of Empire by Akala.
David's nugget about door frame heights came from Bill Bryson's At Home: A Short History of Private Life
