Every new onboarding is exciting as it validates our mission of making global employment possible.

Your onboarding starts as soon as you are invited to Remote to fill in your personal details. 


Once you have uploaded all your required documents and the onboarding tasks are complete, you will receive a confirmation message.


See a demo below of what the self enrollment process looks like for employees.

What happens next?

The onboarding team begins working on the employment agreement/contract only if you have completed your onboarding tasks on Remote. Once we have conducted the relevant checks, a dedicated onboarding specialist will reach out to you to guide you through the remaining aspects of onboarding, which include: 

  • Reviewing the employment agreement 
  • Making changes to the employment agreement 
  • Answering country-specific questions you may have
  • Getting the employment agreement signed
  • Enrolling you in any benefits you may be entitled to per your contract
  • Enrolling you in the payroll

Once all these have been completed, you are officially onboarded.

Onboarding timelines

In each country, there's a minimum amount of time we require for you to be fully onboarded before your start date. We will first need to conduct a right-to-work check (and in some countries, a medical check) before you can receive your employment agreement. The minimum amount of time needed depends on the country.

We have a list of the onboarding timelines for each country: Country Onboarding Timeline

What affects onboarding?

When there's a delay during onboarding, this may affect your planned start date. Your start date can be impacted by a number of factors:

  • Not completely filling out your personal information on Remote on time
  • Not having the required documentation. 
  • Back and forth on changes to the employment agreement  
  • Right to work and/or visa processes
  • Undone medical exam (if applicable). See also: What countries require a health check?

It is not uncommon to move your planned start date to ensure we have enough time to complete your onboarding compliantly.
