About FrontLine Employee

Easy, Simple, Editable, and Ready to Go. You'll find FrontLine Employee fun and easy to read. It's simple, punchy, and powerful. We focused like a laser beam on content using our 30 years of experience in employee assistance programming and HR consulting.

Experts Write It. You'll discover the most effective, content-driven newsletter possible. Articles are so unique that employees think we are reading their minds. But of course, we're not. We just know what issues they are facing because we have worked with employee and family issues for so long.

New Articles. Super-fresh Content. FrontLine articles target improved productivity, better living, "right thinking", emotional common sense, reduced stress, goal attainment, better relationships, and work/life balance.

Employers Win with Reduce Exposure. FrontLine Employee articles help reduce behavioral risk and "sleeper" exposures in your work organization by encouraging employees to seek help for personal problems. Articles don't just educate. They motivate employees to seek self-improvement.

We examined all the options. We produced FrontLine Employee after examining the competition and improving on existing publications. Frankly, that's why the U.S. Congress chose FrontLine Employee for its 12,000 employees. (WorkLife Excel®)

Short, sweet, and to the point. FrontLine Employee is two pages, not four. That decision was purposeful. Articles range from 70 to 245 words.Your investment isn't wasted and employees read it completely.

Call It Your Own. You can edit articles in FrontLine Employee, add your own articles, or save articles for future use. E-mail it, photocopy it, or print it. You can also rename it the newsletter to one you like or one your employee vote on!

Never Worry Again about Finding Content. Do you already have a newsletter for employees, but find it a pain to come up with content and article ideas? Stop the mad searches for content. Use our articles in your publication and your troubles end. We are your last stop to solve this problem. Simply choose the "text only" version of FrontLine Employee. We will then send you a MS Word document each month.
