The first step of the onboarding process is making sure that the company’s new employee feels welcomed by the members. The ideal time to send a welcome email to the new employee would be a day before the joining date after they have signed the offer letter.
A well-written welcome email will create a positive impression for the new employee and help them prepare themselves for the onboarding process. This also provides an opportunity for HR if they have missed any documents or details in the offer letter or if they have left out any formal procedures.
The welcome email can contain details about who will be the new employee’s immediate supervisor, who to contact about any problem, any meetings scheduled on the first day, etc.
To make your work easier, we have drafted a standard welcome email that has all the necessary information typical to any job and company. Additional details can be added or customized.
