Each week, we will feature a different document from our forms library and provide information about where to find it, what it’s used for, and any necessary instructions. With this program, you’ll always be one step ahead of the game when it comes to finding the forms you need.
This week, the HR Form of the Week is the Employment Offer Letter
For clients with access to the Forms Library, you can locate the document as follows:
Offer letters are a key part of the employment process as they record an agreement between an employer and potential employee. While verbal offers and employment agreements are valid and definitely have their place in the employment relationship, an offer letter is a great way to get that relationship off to a solid start. A well-crafted offer letter provides a clear set of expectations for everyone involved in the hiring process and any document that can add clarity to the initial stage of the employment life cycle goes a long way in creating calm seas and smooth sailing.
A well written, comprehensive offer letter should be used for all positions, including manual laborers, rank and file employees, and entry level positions. It outlines all of the details related to the job, including job title and description, salary information, benefits, start date, and other job-related terms. Job-related information in an offer letter sets expectations and can save both time and money if any issues do arise in the future.
We hope you find this information valuable and that it helps to make your HR experience easier and more efficient.
