Remotely Onboarding Young People
In response to Covid we have seen many changes to our working lives and a significant portion of the workforce moving their desks from the office to the living room. The shift to remote working has seen many employers faced with the challenge of on-boarding new members of staff remotely rather than in person. This interactive webinar provides employers recruiting young people with practical guidance on what to include in an effective remote on-boarding process. Click here for more information and booking.
