It is important to introduce a new hire the right way. If the person is stepping into a senior or manager role in your company, you need to ensure that they are presented to your team as the expert they expect. One of the easiest ways to communicate with your team is in an email. It provides you with the opportunity to tell your current employees about the new employee and to share her skills and experience.
This email can also allow you to shape your employees’ understanding of what the new employee brings to the team. You can share the new employee’s background, work experience, education, and skills. This builds positive expectations from the new coworkers.
The information gives the new employee credibility as she walks in the door. This is an important foundation for you to lay as you want to shape your employees’ perceptions and expectations that the new employee deserves their support from the beginning.
After an introduction email, depending on the size of your business, you can host a formal meeting to introduce your new star. This can become a workplace tradition that ensures new employees are welcomed in your workplace and existing staff need not feel intimidated or excluded. It’s one of your first steps to ensure that you retain your excellent employees.
Finally, a new employee introduction email for people who are joining your team in entry-level or starting positions gives you the opportunity to explain the new employee’s job, location, and start date. It alerts your employees to look for a new employee to greet and welcome. A positive new employee introduction letter also shares several points of interest about the new employee. This opens up the door to her new coworkers finding commonality and shared interests with the new employee.
Send this type of employee introduction via email to your all-staff mailing list. Everyone will anticipate welcoming the new employee to the team.
