WorkExcel.com is owned by DFA Publishing & Consulting, LLC and located near Charleston, South Carolina.
Formerly, WorkExcel.com was called EAPtools.com until we broadened the
scope of our products to better serve human resource managers and other
allied workforce management professionals who are concerned about
employee behavioral issues in the workplace, reducing related risk, and
improving supervisor skills.
We started operations in 1994 with the publication of the FrontLine
Supervisor newsletter. It is still one of our most popular products. The
newsletter is an editable, reproducible, and e-mail ready publication.
Originally intended to educate managers, supervisors, and team leaders
in how to use the organization's employee assistance program (EAP) as a
resource to help employees improve job performance, it also offers
skills education to help supervisors become better managers of
themselves and those they supervise. We have written over 1200 questions
and answers on the supervisor's role to date.
We offer publications, training products, free informational tools,
ideas, and tips to support employers, and those who serve employers with
the mission of helping employees remain healthy, happy, and productive.
Our goal is to help employers reduce behavioral risk exposure and the
loss of productivity that flow from employee behaviors influenced by
behavioral health conditions, stress, addictive disease and substance
abuse, conflict at work, personal troubles, inappropriate and risky
behavior, and reactions to events like violence, trauma, and loss.
Our customers include:
human resource professionals, trainers, and benefits consultants
employee assistance professionals
substance abuse counselors
wellness and occupational health professionals
insurance agents and those who strive to help employers reduce risk
family medical practice professionals
mental health professionals in public or private practice
organizational development professionals
small business owners or their office/business managers
