The FrontLine Employee Story

Here's a newsletter that is easy to read, simple, punchy, and powerful. We focused like a laser beam on content using our 30 years of experience in the employee assistance and work/life fields. We then produced the most effective, content-driven newsletter possible with articles so unique that employees think we are reading their minds. But of course, we aren't. We just know what issues they're facing because we've worked with employee and family issues for so long.

FrontLine Employee includes articles with super-fresh content that target improved productivity, better living, "right thinking", emotional common sense, reduced stress, goal attainment, better relationships, and work/life balance. But its articles also help reduce behavioral risk and "sleeper" exposures in your work organization. FrontLine Employee is everything you want in an employee newsletter.

We examined every newsletter option available to work organizations, and then went to work to produce this publication. Frankly, that's why the U.S. Congress chose our newsletter for its 12,000 employees.

Frontline Employee is two pages, not four. That decision was purposeful. It means the newsletter gets completely read. And FrontLine Employee is easy to distribute. You can edit articles, add your own articles, or save articles for future use. Email it, photocopy it, or print it.

But wait. Do you already have a newsletter for employees, but find it a pain to come up with content and article ideas? Stop the mad search for content each month. 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 send you a MS Word document each month.

During the year, both newsletters target twelve different personal and workplace productivity issues that we have identified as keys boosting morale, productivity, and job satisfaction. They include:
  • Workplace communication: conflict, personality issues, dealing with difficult people, attitude problems, issues, and "ulterior motives" of coworkers, etc.
  • Worker productivity tips: time management, organization, setting priorities, procrastination, etc.
  • Family, home, and community issues: teenagers, family stress, conflict, work-life balance, ADHD, etc.
  • Personal fitness and emotional wellness: Exercise tips, getting more energy, depression, emotional wellness
  • Personal effectiveness and goal achievement: planning your career, getting more done, planning for retirement, New Year's resolutions, managing money
  • Team building: Tips on better meetings, reducing conflict, improving communication, about cohesiveness, being a team player, etc.
  • Improving relationships with supervisors: communication, knowing what your supervisor wants, completing assignments , making an impression
  • Hot productivity and health topics: health issues in the news, ideas, etc.
  • Stress management: ongoing tips, avoiding burnout, self-assessment,
  • [with our Employee Assistance Program version] EAP education, confidentiality, what EAPs do, when to use your EAP
  • Workplace safety tips and injury prevention: Avoiding dangerous short-cuts, injury prevention, thinking safety, building a culture of safety, how to influence peers so they think safety, too
