The health crisis has accelerated the need for digital solutions for companies and democratized remote work. Notably for recruiters, who have to reinvent a way of recruiting without meeting the candidate... even for the signature of their employment contract

According to a study conducted by Usine Digitale and Sopra HR, in 2021, nearly 60% of HR professionals will see the recruitment of new remote employees as one of the changes in their business closely linked to Covid-19.

While HRIS tools are valuable resources for companies, they do not necessarily cover all of the needs of recruiters. 

So how do you organize yourself in the management of your work contracts and then in the signing of remote work contracts when you are a recruiter? 

How to sign a remote employment contract?

Generate and sign a remote employment contract

An employment contract is an agreement between an employee and an employer. Once signed, it sets out the legal obligations by which they are bound for the duration of the contract.

Most of the time, it is the human resources departments that are responsible for drawing up these contracts.

Their content varies from one company to another. However, they must include the information required by the French Labor Code, as well as the employee's position, salary, working hours, place of work, etc. Certain clauses (confidentiality, non-competition, etc.) may also be added.

The exchange of this employment contract for signature between a company and a future employee is a key moment! It is framed by strict rules and must therefore be done in due form in a short period of time.

Using a CLM with electronic signature can help you generate and sign these employment contracts quickly and efficiently, saving you time... and productivity!
