Before the new employee even starts work. you have an opportunity to enhance the relationship. The opportunity is a new employee welcome letter.
A welcome letter for a new employee who accepted your job terms and supposed to start to work demonstrates the employee’s decision to accept the job formally. When you write a welcome letter to a new employee, he or she feels stress-free and the letter helps the employee feel he was welcomed and wanted.
By writing a welcome letter you can express your satisfaction with the employee’s choice and it motivates and encourages him or her. You can reiterate the details (working hours, business dress…etc.) in your letter. Giving such details in a welcome letter makes the employee feel relax.
At last, you can end your writing with wishes that encourages him or her for working efficiently.
A new employee welcome letter template is below:
