New employees are usually quite nervous about their first day at work. There is so much to learn and so many people to get to know that it can get very uncomfortable for them to start work on a first day. Ice breakers are becoming popular nowadays with many employers choosing to introduce new employees to existing ones and clients in order make everyone comfortable.
Many employers prefer to introduce new employees to clients directly. However, in the event that a company does not host clients at the premises, employers need to write letters to introduce them. This activity does not only introduce a new employee but also provides clients with valuable information on what an employee’s professional background comprises of. This is especially beneficial in organizations such as banks and brokerage houses where clients are in constant touch with employees.
When writing a letter of introduction for a new employee, it is important to exercise tact. Many clients will be understandably wary of new people to interact with but with a careful introduction, their uneasiness can be put to ease. Have a look at the following sample of introduction letter that will help you decide what you need to write when you issue a similar letter to your client.
