Article Summary: 

How to Make a New Team Member Feel Welcome

The most important details in this text are the seven suggestions for welcoming new team members. These include sending out a welcome card, letter, package or email to express how you're looking forward to working with the person, telling them you've been looking forward to meeting them, taking a moment from the day to greet the new person, introducing them to the company, team or project, explaining why they're there and why everyone should be excited and happy to have them, and having a welcome gathering. These steps can help the new person feel comfortable and boost productivity by getting everyone working together faster. Inviting the new employee to coffee, having lunch with them or some other nonwork-related event is a great way to break the ice in a social and less stressful environment. Meet with them to review roles, responsibilities and expectations, cover the company handbook with them, provide training and support, and give them a plan.

Follow up with them to make sure work is done correctly and build personal bonds. If the new person is in charge of you, there are also ways to make them feel welcome and make a good impression.
