If there are multiple new hires starting in the same period (e.g. in the same day or week), consider sending one email to introduce them all.
This email is meant to encourage employees to introduce themselves. If you’re hiring remote employees, make sure to share their contact details (e.g. email, phone number, Slack name), so staff can reach out.
Keep your welcome aboard email short and include the following key information about each new hire:
- Their name
- Their role and team/department
- Their starting date
- A few key things about their background, hobbies, and interests
