New Hire Offer Letter

A job offer letter starts off the employment relationship on a positive note. It includes most information about the job and its responsibilities. The job offer letter is kept very direct and positive allowing the candidate to understand the reason why he has been particularly chosen, the experience they bring and what is required of him. This letter encourages new employees to be confident with the decision to accept the job offer and the ability to perform as expected. A job offer letter also serves as a legal basis for employment ensuring that every word on that note can be held accountable to the company. This truth brings the company to a precise point where they can only promise the new employee what they will be able to deliver. The job offer letter contains details about the salary, benefits, dates and times and any other relevant information that the company wants to share.
