Description

Virtual meetings are tough enough, but imagine starting a new job where you can’t meet your new team members face-to-face.

We hear some disaster stories but also how to best help workers start a new job or finish up including:

* the benefits of “coffee roulette” in "onboarding" new staff;

* how many "touchpoints" (human engagements) you need for someone to feel truly connected at work and

* how to properly acknowledge retirement virtually.

Guests:

Ethan Bernstein, associate professor of leadership and organisational behaviour at Harvard Business School.
Gabrielle Harris, CEO at management consultancy Interchange

Case studies:

Larissa Dubecki, ABC communications team

Sandy Webster, former logistics manager 

Sara Summerbell employment lawyer who fled Houston
