Drafting a letter to your employees can seem daunting, but once you get started, writing a few sentences in your natural voice is effective. Here are a few things to touch on:
- Welcome the new team member
- A word about the company
- Why the company is successful (hint: because of the great team)
- What the purpose of the company is
- Why the new hire should be excited about joining the company
- The company’s future
- A light-hearted closing remark to introduce the rest of the handbook.
And here are some examples:
University of Missouri

You join thousands of others across our four campus system to advance the quality and mission of Missouri’s signature public research university.
The university is more than just a place to work. It is a place where you can build a career. It is a place where you can make a difference.
