Formulate a way to ease the pressure off the new employee

An onboarding welcome letter is a vital one that every new employee looks forward to. The welcome letter introduces the new employee to the new position providing an essential background information on the company. It also presents the responsibilities that the new employee will be handling and the management who supervises him. This letter comes as an essential interaction of the new company to the staff giving them an idea of what it looks like at work. It also motivates the employee to learn that someone will be waiting to receive them on their first day at work.
