The Remote HR Department in 2021: Best Practices to Manage Employees from a Distance

Even before the recent pandemic upended everything about the way we work, HR departments already had a difficult job. Not only are HR departments charged with developing and implementing pandemic safety protocols, onerous budget and personnel reductions, and the rapid transition to remote work, but they must also support a workforce that’s stressed out, less productive, and off-site.

This problem predates the pandemic, but it’s taking on renewed importance as companies fight to thrive in an increasingly digital environment. According to a 2019 survey, more than half of HR personnel reported challenges with identifying, acquiring, and retaining talent ready with the skills and temperament to succeed in an increasingly digital work space.

Onboarding New Employees in the COVID-19 Era Takes Extra Planning, Effort

You only get one chance to make a first impression on a new employee. Despite the fact that initial interactions are often now remote instead of in person, welcoming a new employee to your company is vitally important. Consider how you can make new workers feel like part of the team.

LinkedIn Etiquette for Managers, Employees, and Recruiters

LinkedIn has 660 million users, and that number continues to creep up. With that many people, it’s a fantastic place to network, share ideas, and even make new friendships. There are lots of options for interacting on LinkedIn, but some things people do may limit the usefulness of this career-focused social media site.
