Do you have a formula/template you use when announcing new hires to the rest of the site/company/team?
I'm about to transfer to a new department in a few weeks and I just found myself writing my own welcome message to send off to my new boss. I was curious if you use this practice, and what you include (or don't include.)
Here's how mine generally go:
[i]Please join me in welcoming ______ to the ____ team.
______ comes to us from (previous company/position/school) where she/he has worked on (list several projects/accomplishments).
In his/her spare time _____ likes to (spend time with his family, sports, etc).
Effective (date), ____ will be reporting to me.
Welcome to the team![/i]
