Need a new employee announcement to use as a guide while you develop your own? This announcement email introduces the new employee to her new coworkers. It provides an opportunity for you to tell them about the new employee, and share her skills and experience.

It also allows you to shape your employees’ understanding of what the new employee brings to the team. You can share the new employee’s background, work experience, education, and skills. This builds positive expectations from the new coworkers. It gives the new employee credibility as she walks in the door.

Finally, the new employee introduction gives you the opportunity to explain the new employee’s job, location, and start date. It alerts your employees to look for a new employee to greet and welcome.

Send this employee introduction via email to your all-staff mailing list. Everyone will anticipate welcoming the new employee to the team. At TechSmith Corporation, these emails all have a subject line, “Plus One.” All employees know that these emails are introducing a new employee.

This is the kind of workplace tradition you need to develop in your workplace.

Employee Introduction

Dear Staff:

Today is a great plus one news day. Marie St. Clair is joining our team on May 1. Marie will work as a documentation specialist in the customer engagement department in Building 407 in the documentation center. So, if you see a new face on May 1, let Marie know that you are excited about her joining our team.

To start, Marie is assigned to the widget team, so if you work on or with the widget team, do look for an opportunity to greet Marie. You can also join us for lunch on one of Marie’s first days if you let me know when you are available. A small group will be taking her out to lunch on May 1 and 2.

Marie has worked at two other technology companies over the past ten years, so she brings a wealth of knowledge about product documentation. In fact, if you have used software by Adobe, you may have read Marie’s books.

Marie’s Bachelor’s degree is from Michigan State University where she majored in educational technology with a minor in communications. Since several of her new colleagues share this degree, you will have a lot in common.

Marie has a passion for writing fiction in her spare time and volunteers with organizations that work with at-risk children. She looks forward to volunteering in her new community and will be looking for recommendations about everything from painters to good places to eat.

A reception is scheduled for May 1 in the Building 407 conference room to welcome Marie and two other new employees who are starting that week. Please join us at 4 p.m. for gelato, punch, and iced tea. RSVP to Mark Guiliani at ext. 4356.

I appreciate you joining me in providing a warm welcome for Marie.

With excitement,

Name of Department Manager / Boss
