A Welcome Pack for new starters joining the Trust has been developed

Welcome pack

The Welcome Pack was developed by the Organisational Development (OD) and Communications and Engagement team to help introduce new colleagues to the Trust. It is designed to provide them with useful information about EEAST and the staff services within as they move into EEAST as their new employer.

Earlier in the year, Jill Page, Leadership & Management Development Manager, undertook a review of the experiences that our new starters had when joining the Trust.  Those who fed back were open and honest with their experiences, which inspired the creation of the pack to assist and improve the ‘on-boarding’ experience. 

How it will work?

All newly recruited colleagues after the 1st September 2020, will be sent a link to the online Welcome Pack as part of their unconditional job offer letter.   At the end of the pack is a quiz for them to take, based on their understanding of the information they have just read. On successful completion of that quiz, they will proceed the next stage of their recruitment and be invited for their formal induction by our OD colleagues.

Jill Page said “We are trying to improve what we do for our people, both new and existing employees.  We want to be more engaging, more supportive and improve our processes.  Our colleagues told us they would have benefitted from a formal introduction to EEAST, to be provided with more information about what we do and how we do it as an integral part of the much wider NHS family. This pack is a direct result of the feedback we received.”

“This pack provides new colleagues with key information points to help them prepare ahead of joining EEAST.”

 The steps below outline our aspiration for the process of onboarding new staff to ensure EEAST remains an exceptional place to learn, work and volunteer.
