Don’t believe Stephen King. Whether you're a visitor or a resident, you’re unlikely to find yourself in a horror story on a sojourn through The Pine Tree State. You are much more likely to enjoy delicious fresh-caught lobster and abundant natural beauty. In fact, contrary to Mr. King’s depiction, Maine is actually one of the safest states in the country. So, if your next employee is a Mainer, chances are they won’t want to leave. Fortunately, no matter where your business is based, collaborating across state lines is easy in this era of remote work.Bringing on a new employee can be exciting, but there’s often a lot to do as well. You want to onboard your new hire as quickly and smoothly as possible to ensure their success at your organization.
