The onboarding process of a remote employee is entirely different from that of a non-remote employee. In the non-remote onboarding, the new employee starts having their nerves settled after a few interactions with other colleagues and even better if with the CEO itself. But in remote employee onboarding, there are no such interactions, which makes their orientation challenging.
Generally, someone joining a new company will always have uncertainties, questions, and curiosity. This may give them a sleepless night just before their very first day of joining, which is, however, natural. Nevertheless, the onboarding process helps the new employee greatly in this regard.
