Reinforcing to your remote hires that they’re part of the same team, irrespective of where they live, goes a long way in building an inclusive culture.
This is particularly important where you may be utilising talent from countries you wouldn’t usually operate in. They should receive the same introduction and welcome as the rest of your in-country teams (with some localised variations depending on geography).
Each touchpoint of a remote team’s onboarding, payroll and ongoing HR should feel like part of the same experience as your local workforce and your technology needs to support this. There are many onboarding software providers out there, but very few (like Expedo!) cater to both workforce types across global locations.
