You've just successfully added a valuable member to your team, and your recruitment efforts have paid off. You're feeling a sense of pride in your recruitment team and eager to welcome your new team member on board. However, there's a crucial step that should not be overlooked: announcing your new hire.
New hire announcements are more than just a formality; they signal positive developments within your organization. The subsequent buzz generated around your company can enhance your brand, fostering a sense of pride among your current employees and attracting prospective talent. What's more, it's a cost-effective way to promote your organization.
Here's the right way to go about it:
Once your new hire has settled into their role after a few weeks, seek their consent to feature their photo and a brief introduction on your website and the social media platforms your organization utilizes.
What to include in the announcement:
Pertinent information about their professional background
Details about their new team
Insights into your company
A warm welcoming quote from the hiring team or an executive team member
A personal quote from your new team member sharing their enthusiasm for their new role
That’s it! Easy, right? Will you make more use of this overlooked approach?
