The welcome gifts your new hires get on their first day show them (and their friends & family) that you really care and help them with transition into a new company.
Most people understand just how nerve-wracking it can be as a new employee. Everyone has been hired by someone at least once in their lives to get where they are today. This process can be scary as you often don’t know anyone within the company besides the hiring manager you had your interview with. To make new employees feel welcomed and included in the company the first day, try integrating a new employee on-boarding welcome kit into your office.
These kits will set up your new employees for success. A new employee will notice your company culture and dedication right away with welcome kits that are above and beyond. Their first day will feel even more special if they know you’re committed to watching them grow from the very start.
What is a Welcome Kit?
A basic new hire welcome kit combines helpful information with practical office supplies. Having a list of important contacts, frequently asked questions, contracts, core values, logins, and other general information can help them get acclimated quickly. This information will help answer the important questions that most new hires will have so you don’t have to feel like you’re constantly repeating yourself.
An added bonus is if you include personalized messages from top-level executives welcoming your new employees to the company. These can make new employees feel included and ready to take on their new job with added motivation. Adding fun and useful company swag makes them feel special and a part of the brand from day one.
