Be strategically clustered

That makes it easy to meet up for things like onboarding, team getaways or in-person brainstorming.

Create a hybrid approach to onboarding

If possible, meet your new team members in person, as it helps build personal relationships.

Don’t expect people to know how a tool works

…your company may use them differently to how they’ve used them in the past.

Check in regularly

This might be with quick coffee chats, team get togethers or daily stand ups. These can all be done in person or online.

Always track 1:1 meetings

…hold both parties accountable and provide a system to overview a team’s progress

Invest in company-wide meetings

Keep everyone informed about the business and the wider mission — not just within the silos of their team. Create a weekly recurring event — like an all hands meeting — in everyone’s diaries
