New Hire Checklist: Onboarding Gifts to Make Them Feel Like Part of the Team

Starting a new job can be both exciting and a bit nerve-wracking. People teams can create moments that help new hires feel welcome, instantly making them a part of the team by gifting them custom swag welcome kits and other tokens of appreciation.

Creating a formal process helps kick-start a new hire's onboarding experience. Despite an understanding of both the immediate and long-term benefits of a positive onboarding experience for new hires, only 2 in 3 Americans (65.6%) report their company has a formal onboarding process, according to Unwrapped: Snappy’s 2023 Workforce Study

By sharing a gift, companies are creating a culture of appreciation and gratitude from day one, which will make new employees feel settled and comfortable, quickly. 

Consider suiting your newest colleague up for success using custom gear with your company logo on it, or helping them deck out their deskspace with cutting-edge technology, greenery, or other desirable items to help them perform their best and get settled into their new role.

Explore custom swag kits and gift ideas, all available through Snappy for Business Gifting, and get ready to create a best-in-class onboarding experience and culture of employee engagement from the very first day:
