A team member's first day is a flashpoint moment in their employee journey and how you introduce them to their colleagues can make all the difference. This is your opportunity to celebrate your new hire and provide some personal anecdotes and connective tissue to spur relationship building with your existing team. Introducing new hires to your organization has never been easier to do well.

Turn on HiThrive's New Hire Announcements

New hire announcements can be enabled through HiThrive's Admin Portal and are designed to ensure that your organization never misses a new team member's first day. By enabling this feature, HiThrive will introduce your team member to the channel that you designate including both the visual (card) and announcement template that is created. This announcement is prompted on their start date per the information that you enter on their HiThrive profile or via information automatically synced via your HRIS integration.

Complete your HRIS Integration

HiThrive currently integrates with the following HRIS platforms. 

  • ADP
  • BambooHR
  • Ceridian Dayforce

Creating Personalization

  • Office Location
  • Custom Onboarding Fields

Depending on information availability, your new hire announcement may look something like the below:
