Product tier: Available for Greenhouse Welcome and Greenhouse Onboarding subscription tiers
Your Welcome Experience(s) is comprised of customizable pages arranged in a particular order used to welcome new hires to your organization.
Greenhouse Onboarding provides six default pages to help your organization get started.
You are able to delete default and custom pages; however, they are not retrievable. This article provides the in-app text for each default page that you can add to your welcome experience in case you delete a page.
Over the next few pages, we’ll introduce you to some of your coworkers, gather a little more information about you, and tell you about what you can expect next.
You'll receive a few reminders as you approach your start date to come back and fill in any missing information. We are so excited for you to join us on [Start date].

A few pieces of information
We'll keep it simple, but we need a few details about you before you start! It's extremely important to submit your information as soon as possible, as delays may adversely impact your onboarding experience - specifically your system and software access during your first week in the office.
In the next few days you will receive some emails from our onboarding system that will contain a set of tasks that have been assigned to you. These tasks have been designed to help you stay on top of action items prior to your start date and throughout the start of your journey here. To view the tasks and mark as complete, you can either access them directly from the email or by logging into this site and viewing them on your dashboard.
We want every employee to feel excited to embark on their journey, so please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions in the meantime! As a reminder, you're able to come back to this site at any time to submit your required information or to review any of these pages again.
Your Manager will be guiding you through your job training and general onboarding. Learn more about them below!
Onboarding isn't just about collecting information from you — we also want you to get to know our company and culture.
Ideas for additional content
Your first day
Give your new hire an idea of how the first day will look. Who will meet them in the lobby? What meetings will they be attending? Who will they be meeting?
Where to grab coffee or lunch
Let your new hire know some good places to grab coffee or eat around the office. If there's shared food in the office, let them know about any kitchen policies. If your company provides lunch, share some common menu items to give them an idea of what to expect.
What to wear
If your new hire isn't familiar with the company dress code, let them know what's expected in your office. Feel free to add an image to give them a real-life example to pull from.
Answer some common questions that occur about benefits, such as:
- When and where will the new hire sign up for benefits?
- What kind of benefits are provided?
- What is the sick leave policy?
- What is the PTO policy?
Let your new hire know what days of the year the office is closed.
Lastly, a few tips
Put your new hire's mind at ease by giving them some more information about your company culture. Some examples we like to use are:
Tell us what you're thinking
We hired you because we think you're brilliant. We want you to challenge us to be the best we can be, especially if that means you think there's a better way to do something. We care more about outcomes than about being right.
Interruptions are not nearly as tragic as misunderstandings. Everyone on the team is happy to help support you in your work and in your learning.
