Newly hired employees need to feel welcomed and a welcome letter is just one part of the onboarding process.
A warm welcome letter can help build a strong foundational core for the new team member’s entire onboarding experience. The letter should:
- Build excitement and enthusiasm in advance of their first day of work;
- Ease stress and anxiety about what they can expect in their first week;
- Foster belonging and inclusion by making the employee feel like part of the team; and
- Provide valuable insight into the business and the company culture.
How to Use it
Make it your own! This is your opportunity to let the new hire know you care about them and you have their best interests in mind. Make it personal, make it fun, make it exciting!
