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 event you host or other special occasions. It's the loveliest way to show this person that you appreciate his/her 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 to make a 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.
