    Default bring around

    Hi,

    What does "bring around" mean?


    They brought around a new employee this morning.


    Thanks a lot

    Does it just mean "bring"?

    Thanks a lot

    When a new employee joins a company, they usually take him around the office/plant/building to introduce him to his new co-workers and to show him where things are. That's what the "around" means.
