Welcome emails show initiative in caring for a new joiner. This can help towards their perception of the company in the long-run. On your side, you will get a well-informed new joiner who knows where to be on their first day.
Consider sending this email within a few days of the new employee’s official start date. It is also a great idea to ask them to confirm that they’ve received the email, so both parties will be on the same page on their first day.
Please keep in mind that this is a template. You may change it to suit your company's voice and tone.
