A new hire's first day isn't just their first day with your company, it's also your company's first day in their life. How you introduce your office to a new hire will play a significant role in how quickly they adapt to your company culture and how long they stay. Make sure you kick off your onboarding process on the right foot with a professional appearance and the best materials.

When choosing onboarding gifts, think about what supplies would be useful for them around the office. A good double-wall water bottle will be a lifesaver during their onboarding and orientation. A custom label is an easy way to add a professional touch to any piece of swag.

Onboarding Paperwork and Manuals

There will be a lot of paperwork for your new hire on the first day. Assemble all the paperwork and onboarding documents into a durable and professional binder that will last their entire career.

Organizing the paperwork with dividers will give your new hire a running start and also reflects how well your company thinks ahead. Also remember to provide them their own tools so that they can create their own organization system with office supplies like repositionable Ultra Tabs™ or a Hi-Liter®.

Friendly Name Badges
