Welcome Email template for PrinciplesUs Kick-Off

While the users will get an automated email from the platform once an Admin initiates their invite, we recommend that Admins/Champions send out a note to their group to give them context behind PrinciplesUs, what to expect when/after completing the Principles Assessment, and helpful resources to learn more. Below is a template for this "Welcome Email" and we recommend that you make any edits to the content to best align the tone to your culture and goals for using PrinciplesUs.

Please note, the instructions within the 'Ready to begin your journey' part of the below email is for those accounts set up with email/password log in, and not for those with SSO.
