Welcome new staff email

Use this welcome new staff email template to announce multiple new hires at your company.

As part of your onboarding process, make sure all new employees get a warm welcome. 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.

Keep your email short and include the following key information about each new hire:

  • Their name
  • Their role and team/department
  • Their starting date

You could also mention a few things about their background or personal interests/hobbies. Prompt your current employees to stop by new hires’ offices or desks and introduce themselves.
