Welcome experiences in Greenhouse Onboarding give your new hires an introduction to your organization, their onboarding team, and their next steps, helping them get prepared to begin the onboarding process with you.

Create custom pages with branded assets, media, fields, and other content to personalize the welcome experience for your employees. You can also assign page rules to curate different welcome experiences for new hires based on their location, department, employment status, and other criteria.
