day one. New employees are often optimistic and ready to learn and onboarding is about ensuring that your team meets that enthusiasm with the right attitude.
Make it clear what the expectations will be and what the norms of the company culture are. Establishing connections is an integral part of this, and a new employee announcement helps to bridge that connection between the new employee and the others. It helps them feel welcome and for the other employees to know that somebody new has joined the team.
