Employee Introduction is an attempt of employer to introduce just employed people to existing employees. Its purpose is to welcome new workers and let them feel free and confidently in their attempts to join the new team environment. Also employee introduction makes it easier for managers to assemble and reinforce teams.
As an attempt to present a new employee to co-workers and seniors, employee introduction can be done either orally or in a written form. Both ways are briefly explained below.
- Orally. Oral employee introduction is when a senior (manager, team leader or department head) holds a short meeting to gather subordinates and present new workers to the team. The manager briefly tells about the background and experience of new employees and asks the team to treat them as valued co-workers.
- In a written form. An employee introduction letter is made by a manager and then emailed to all concerned. Such a letter is a formal document that explains who is employed (full name), what duties and responsibilities are allocated to the new employee, what experience and knowledge the person possesses, and other information about the newcomer.
