In the "How to Make an Offer" podcast, I didn't hear any mention of the role of offer letters. This is a required part of the hiring process in my HR Dept. Since I am planning on making some offers soon and (hopefully) following the MT recommendations as much as possible, how do I make the offer letter effective? Should I be treating it as a mere formality?
In other words, I was planning on making the offer verbally and saying something like "I'll be sending out a written offer in the mail with all of the details of this offer. If you have any questions, please call me." Any other recommendations?
