Make a New Employee Announcement

By April 12, 2014

Follow me on:

How you announce a new employee's arrival sets the tone for his or her experience of your workplace. Your new employee announcement also sets the stage for the new employee's success with his or her new coworkers.

Sample letters for employers are sought by site readers. My new employee welcome letters have been popular, with reason. (Remember, you have just one chance to create a positive new employee experience.)

Today's new employee announcement continues the tradition of civility, warmth, and grace with which you want to welcome new employees. It is a sample new employee announcement that tells your current employees that a new employee is starting work at your company.

The new employee announcement gives your staff some information about your new employee's background and experiences so they support your chosen employee. Telling current staff broadly what the new employee will do helps them see how their job or function aligns with that of the new employee. Here's a second sample employee introduction.

The new employee announcement is one of the key steps that I recommend in my recent article about how to welcome a new employee.

Setting up a time to meet the new employee is an extra special touch that I'd like to see happen regularly. What do you think?

Dear Ms. Susan,
This suggestion reminds me of when a child is born, the entire family and extended family rejoice and share this with friends, etc. It makes a lot of difference and I fully agree that such small thoughts go a long way in acceptance and bonding. It is not technology, but being ‘human’. That’s why we very often refer to the organisation as a ‘family’ and we’re walking the talk thru this gesture.
