Welcome new employees with an onboarding kit

Welcome new staff beautifully with this new employee onboarding pack template.

What is an onboarding kit pack?

An employee onboarding pack or welcome kit is a set of documents that help a new team member learn more about the role and how the company operates. Onboarding packs are typically sent to new staff when they join a workplace.

Why create an onboarding kit ?

A good employee onboarding experience makes a significant contribution to the morale of new colleagues. Companies that ensure joiners feel welcome tend to see better staff satisfaction and higher productivity, than companies that have no onboarding procedure, or a poor one.

When should you create an onboarding kit?

Even the smallest start-ups need to ensure new members of their team feel welcome and have all the information they need to function, from day one. Therefore, no company is too young to create a staff onboarding pack.

What should you include in an onboarding kit?

An onboarding pack should contain documents on the following:

  • A welcome message.
  • Practical information, such as where the employee should sit, hours of work, office address, etc.
  • Account set up details. Typically new starts need to create a number of accounts to enable them to operate.
  • Links to other company docs, for example; employee handbook, company values.

How to use this onboarding kitOnboard template

Sharing and maintaining your employee onboarding document
