First days can be tough but there’s a lot that you can do in welcoming the new employees. Using smart software for employee onboarding and having a proactive onboarding plan is very important, but tools and plans can only go so far; it’s the human touch that you add that will create an extraordinary experience.
1) Get your welcome email right
Keep it warm, highlight their achievements or any interesting facts about them that their team should learn – your welcome email is a great opportunity to subtly place facts which can be picked up by teammates as conversation starters. Make it memorable. Also, show your new hires what they should do next. For example, introduce a buddy or mentor, or introduce team mates they’ll be working with so they can go say a quick “hello”.
