During the pandemic lockdown and while teams are working remotely it is vital for new employees to have access to all the information and support they need. Andrea Conde of MF Brands Group provides an update on the International Trademark Association’s young practitioners committee’s first virtual discussion.
The lockdown imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the digitisation of companies and law firms. To explore the challenges and opportunities this situation presents, the International Trademark Association’s (INTA) young practitioners committee has launched a series of virtual discussions on adapting to the digital workplace.
During the first discussion, held in May, participants discussed the ins and outs of digital onboarding (integrating a new employee with a company and its culture) from the perspective of both the onboarder and the onboardee, and shared tips and tricks on how to make integration of new employees in a digital workplace easier.
Many workers have rapidly had to switch to remote working on a daily basis despite a low percentage of them having the option to work from home prior to the COVID-19 crisis, according to Alena Fischerova, associate at BomhardIP in Spain.
