Team Building - How do you welcome new team members?

Compared to some organisations, here at Heritage we have a pretty small, close knit team of seven

Compared to some organisations, here at Heritage we have a pretty small, close knit team of seven. 

Whilst we all have different roles and clients, we are all aiming for the same thing in our workplace, with targets and deadlines to meet. We think it's really important to celebrate the small wins, and have little outings as and when we can. We never miss a chance to mark an occasion (Halloween, anyone?) and you can be sure we have a fully stocked supply of balloons and candles for birthdays.

We have a new team member this month, the wonderful Fiona who joins Rose to form the housekeeping dream team. Much more than a cleaning role, Fiona will be organising stock, ordering laundry supplies and catering to guest's - often very complex - requirements. 

What better way to welcome Fiona to the team than a staff day trip to the seaside? We are all excitedly planning our itinerary and making arrangements. We think it's the perfect way for Fiona to get to know us away from the pressures of the working environment, and of course, it's a great excuse for fish, chips and ice cream... 

It got us wondering about other companies - How do you ensure your team get to know each other? How do you successfully integrate new members of staff into a business or department? Any tips or advice welcomed, we may even do a separate blog post with more team building ideas. 

Watch this space for photos of our fast approaching seaside jaunt, if you follow us on social media, you'll know we love a team selfie!
