New Hires for SharePoint

Celebrate your teammates’ birthdays and anniversaries!

Welcome New Hires!

The New Hires web part is a useful tool to welcome and introduce the new employees who joined your company recently. It displays a list of new hires with their title, location, and manager. You can also see their start date and a photo if available. The web part uses either an Excel file or a SharePoint list as a source for the new hire data. You can specify which source to use in the web part settings.

How does the New Hires web part work?

The New Hires web part is easy to use and configure. You just need to add the web part to your SharePoint page, and it will automatically pick up the birthday and anniversary dates from a SharePoint List or an Excel file. You can specify the location of the List or Excel file in the settings of the Web Part.
