Welcome to the Onboarding Hub
Everything you need to know to prepare for your Remote Year adventure
If it's your first time here, please read this page in it's entirety to get an idea of what to expect as you get ready for your RY adventure. Let's do the damn thing.
So, what's this Onboarding thing?
Remote Year Onboarding is the period of time after you’ve made your initial down payment, but before your Remote Year program has launched.
You will be introduced to the Onboarding Team within a day or two of receiving your down payment. If you build closed one-on-one relationships with your Program Placement Consultant, know that your relationship with onboarding may differ. We still build personal relationships with every Premote, yet you'll receive less emails, calls and texts from us during your Onboarding time. This doesn't mean we don't want to hear from you, rather we'll rely on you to reach out to us with your questions, requests and feedback.
Who is the Onboarding Team?
The Onboarding Team will help you get familiarized with Remote Year and prepare for your transition to the remote work and travel lifestyle.
Your main Onboarding gurus are Reisy, Jules & Pau. You can learn more about these garls here. You have these humans as a dedicated resource for you. The Onboarding Team has knowledge to share, support to provide and inspiration through which they'll empower you. The best way to get in touch is through firstname.lastname@example.org—reach out and say hi or ask a question, no need to be shy!
What's the Value of Onboarding?
Subject Matter Experience + Knowledge Base
We’ve been there, done that, and so have our current Remotes and Citizens. We'll connect you with them, and with the resources and wisdom we've compiled these last few years.
Emotional + Mental Support
We are side-by-side with you, our Premotes, for months (sometimes an entire year!) before Arrival Day. Building authentic and meaningful relationships is our top priority.
Expectation Setting + Empowerment
We want you to feel empowered to own your Remote Year experience, starting with Onboarding. We'll help get your to-do list sorted, and answer your burning questions along the way.
What's my role here?
Onboarding is a bit like those "choose your own adventure" books you read when you were a kid—hang out and chat with us, just use our resources and links, or do a bit of both.
As a Premote (Pre-Remote), you can be as engaged as you'd like. We'll provide the map for your Onboarding journey, but it's not mandatory to follow it exactly, as we know everyone has their own pace and methodology when it comes to travel. Explore this Premote Hub thoroughly, attend as many webinars as you'd like, schedule a 1:1 with us, read the Remote Year blog—the possibilities are endless! The Onboarding Team will continue to ramp up additional communications as your Arrival Day gets closer. Premotes are our source of energy and joy. We're so excited to get to know you, and help you prepare for your adventure.
