A welcome package acts as a continuation of the marketing process for the organization and helps get new hires excited for their role. The welcome letter should include:

  • Start date, time, and location
  • Who the employee is to meet
  • An agenda for the first day

For best results, the letter should be accompanied by other relevant materials, including:

  • Organization information, such as mission and vision statements
  • Job information, such as a job description
  • Housekeeping items, such as dress code (don’t include items that are complex or require explanation)
  • A welcome gift, such as a branded t-shirt or tote bag
  • Social committee information, such as a social calendar

Customize this sample welcome letter and send it in a welcome package two weeks before the new hire’s start date to continue the excitement of the job offer.
