Give New Employees A Warm Welcome with Onboarding Packs

Employee onboarding focuses on integrating new people into your organisation. This allows new employees to settle into your team and quickly become confident and productive in their new job role. When onboarding new employees, a new starter pack can help them to feel at ease in their new position. Onboarding packs include a range of useful resources, including personalised stationery and small gifts.

For a warm welcome, see below for our guide on onboarding packs for new employees:


During employee onboarding, it is important to establish your brand. With an employee welcome pack, your design should represent your branding, your mission statement and what you expect from employees.

For example, employee onboarding packs containing a planner and USB stick show an expectation to be organised. Whereas vibrantly coloured onboarding packs with highlighters and sweets can show an expectation to be creative and outgoing.

Therefore, before drafting your design, plan what your new employee gift should represent and how to achieve exactly that.


There are endless possibilities on what new employee gift you can include in your onboarding packs. Look at their job description and consider what resources can help them to succeed in their role. If they will be travelling to different offices, perhaps a USB to easily carry around their work. If they will be attending lots of meetings, a smart notebook and pen can help. If it is an active job role, a personalised water bottle is a really thoughtful idea.

Additional ideas for your employee welcome pack include:

  • Tablet, smartphone, laptop
  • Notebook or planner
  • Stationery
  • Lanyard
  • Coffee mug
  • Name badge
  • Personalised business cards
  • Branded umbrella

Personalised Gifts

One of the most effective ways of making people feel welcome during employee onboarding is through a personalised gift. Presenting something in their new starter pack with their name next to the brand’s logo can encourage feelings of inclusion and company pride.Whether this is a lanyard, pen or coffee mug it can help to create a positive vibe.


With your design, focus on how the inside of your onboarding packs just as much as the outside. At The Packaging Experts we can create bespoke packaging which fits every new employee gift perfectly inside. This will protect anything inside your new starter pack from getting damaged. It will also show a great deal of care, with a professional and organised presentation.
