Welcome Letter from Four Seasons Whistler.jpg

The welcome letter can be described as a gesture of courtesy and consideration to somebody who joins your company's staff or neighborhood; someone who will take part in a social events you host or other special occasions. It's the loveliest way to show this person that you appreciate his/hers interest, presence or efforts in doing something under your management.

This kind of letter can be formal or casual, depending on the situation. When you are welcoming a new member to your organization for example, the document will be formal. A letter to someone new in your neighborhood would have a more casual tone. When writing a welcome letter, your goal is to break the ice between you and your new friend, classmate, neighbor, customer or employee, as well as making good impression. It's an opportunity to demonstrate how much you value him or her. They should feel at ease in their new environment, and pleasantly surprised by your gesture of welcome.

The welcome letter has the same structure as a usual one, but depending who you're writing to and why, it will start with different salutations and follow either a reserved or relaxed tone.

If you are nervous about approaching them, send them a fruit basket to be delivered with your name, phone number and address and a quick message of welcome to the neighborhood. There is nothing to be nervous about. You are just introducing yourself as a neighbor. The fruit basket plan gives you a pass on showing up at their door with brownies.

How to write a proper welcome letter to an employee who has lost his mother?

I work for a company that has helped an employee during the loss of his mother, with food, cash and they even paid for the funeral. The people involved want to remain anonymous. I organized it all. This morning I received an email from the employee wishing for the names of all involved to say thank you. Trying to put together words to say sorry for your loss, and that he is welcome (but remember, I can't tell him, plus I don't want to give names of those who were involved). Trying to remain "PC." wanting it to sound like it is from all of us who cared. Help?! I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: Trying to remain anonymous
