Whenever you bring a new team member into your organization, there’s a ton of work to be done and information to give throughout the first couple days.
We get it. You’re probably busier than ever and there’s always more work to be done.
However, taking the time to truly welcome your new hire goes a long way toward leaving a lasting positive impression with them. Getting your new hires excited from the start is key to creating loyalty and excitement about their new role.
One of the best places to start is with an employee welcome kit.
Here are five examples of employee welcome kits that are sure to make your new hire feel valued and appreciated.
