For anyone who’s started at a company fully remote (Covid or otherwise)… when ramping into your new role, what did you do to feel more connected to your team/sales dept? I’m finding that I have questions that I don’t know how or whom to ask, I don’t know who anyone is and my manager can be MIA. This is my first fully remote role and it’s thrown me for a bit of a loop

I started in a leadership role fully remote as well earlier this year so I completely know how you feel. My recommendation is to ask HR for org charts and try to foster a “company buddy” who has been there for at least year, that can help you navigate the organization. Be strategic and set up virtual zooms with the department heads so you can network, become educated on their org and if it makes sense who you should work with on their team. Moreover these meets and greets will help
You w/ addressing your questions.

Also realize that most of the challenges you face aren't from being remote, it's from being new. Yes, it's a tad more challenging to build rapport over Teams, but having to hunt for resources when new to a company or organization/team is universal.
