Welcome New Employees the Right Way

The way you welcome new employees can affect how long they stay at your organization

Rick Cundiff

Over the past couple of years, people have begun changing jobs more rapidly, and in greater numbers, than before.

If you’re an employer, you know how expensive that can be. High rates of turnover cost not only money, but also time spent training employees. And when experienced staff members leave, you lose valuable institutional memory as well.

Studies have shown that most people change jobs not for more money, but because they’re dissatisfied with their current workplace. Maintaining morale is one key to reducing turnover. And it is by necessity, a constant, evolving process.

If you want to reduce the turnover in your workplace, one important time to start is on new hires’ first day on the job. Present a good impression right up front and you’ll foster engagement with the job and the workplace from the start.

One great way to show a new hire you’re glad they’re joining your workplace is with a welcome box. It’s an opportunity to present the incoming staffer with things customized with the company logo that they can use on the job.

Welcome boxes are easily customized with a variety of items. Consider giving, for example, pens, a notebook or notepad, a mug for coffee or tea, a lanyard for their I.D. badge, and a t-shirt, polo or hoodie, all imprinted with the organization’s logo. Let the new person know they’re a part of the team right from Day One.

For an extra boost, include a handwritten letter welcoming them to the organization. Show them that the organization’s leaders know they’re there, and that they’re valued.

You can choose from any of our custom items to add to the welcome box. Our experienced staff will be happy to help you decide on the perfect items to include. You can customize boxes for offices, manufacturing, retail sales and more, just by varying the contents of the box.

Show Appreciation to Experienced Staff Too

Want to reward experienced employees as well? It’s easy to turn a welcome box into a thank-you box instead. Whether for projects completed, sales goals met, or even years of service, it’s an excellent way to show your dedicated staff members that they are valued.

If you want to help your employees have a positive workplace experience and reduce turnover, why not give welcome boxes a try? You have nothing to lose, and possibly some great employees to gain. Call or email us today to find out more.
