Properly welcoming and guiding new employees should be more than just sending out a mass email. To successfully integrate new employees into your company, you need to actively work with them to ensure they are fully immersed with your organization.

Learn how to welcome new hires in both office and remote settings with items to make the transition a breeze.

After the Interview

Once they accept your offer, don’t forget to continue engaging with your new hire to keep them excited about working for your brand. To congratulate them on their new position and show them how excited you are to have them work with you, try sending new hires a kit filled with branded items to make them feel like they are a part of the team. Recipients will feel appreciated and be inspired to work hard for your brand.

New Hires in Every Work Setting

Integrating new hires into a company culture can be challenging in any setting. Whether they are working from home or in the office, new hires should feel comfortable reaching out to their coworkers, management and more.

Organizations can avoid new hires feeling disconnected by reaching out to develop deep relationships. Try hosting special “get to know you,” events like happy hour, breakfast and more to encourage authentic bonding and networking with the team. These get-togethers are ideal for welcoming one new hire in a small setting or even a group of interns in a large company.
