Some call it onboarding kits while others call it introduction boxes, but whatever you call it, it’s definitely a kick-ass way to welcome your new employees, recruits, or students. Give them a warm welcome by putting a guide and some necessary items like custom post-its, USB flash drives, company shirt, bags, and more in your onboarding kit. It will make all of them feel loved on the first day of work. But more than that, it will also add more branding to your company or event.
If you’re looking for creative welcome packages for inspiration, check out these awesome examples:
FIELD GUIDE BUSINESS SAFARI
Don’t you just love how it comes complete with mosquito repellant and lip balm? That extra TLC in a very sleek packaging makes this charming.
NEW EMPLOYEE ONBOARDING KIT
The blue-ness of everything (and one red) makes this such an eye-candy.
BOXED WELCOME KIT
Playful yet not tacky. It has achieved the right balance because it only uses three colors- blue, black, and white. It has a 90s stationery feel which can all bring us back to our childhood.
WELCOME KIT IN A CANVAS BAG
Beer mug, cool shirt, a lunch guide…basically, something that says we’re all going to have a good time. There is no way any human would open this bag and not feel excited by the fun experience they’re about to embark in.
ONBOARDING KIT WITH SLEEK OFFICE ESSENTIALS
Mousepad, pens, stickers, booklets, and a water bottle. It’s a gentle way of saying “Get to work!”
EVENT VIDEO COMPANY WELCOME KIT
Free lollipop and confetti along with the company’s brochure and guide. So sweet and tender.
CAMPING WELCOME KIT
DESIGN COMPANY ONBOARDING KIT
All the goodies inside this bag can make the designers roll their sleeves and start tinkering, and even working. The sturdy construction of the box makes this a heavy-duty container they can use for years to come.

One Reply to “Onboarding Kits: Awesome Welcome Packages for Your New Recruits”
I’m interested in doing a Welcome Kit and/or possibly using for client gifts; however, I’m a TINY start up agency and not sure if I’m the right size to do a project like this with you all.
What is your minimum for something like this? Not even sure if that is the right question to start with, but perhaps you could help me understand where to go from here.
