An easy-to-use, customized, workplace newsletter that you can edit or rename--the one used by thousands of companies who swear by it.
Get out of "Newsletter Prison".
I was assigned the burden of producing a monthly two-page newsletter for this large county government and school system--along with my counseling duties.
The task consumed so much of my time that I couldn’t get my other work done. Every month I was bogged down writing the employee newsletter.
This is called "trapped in newsletter prison"!
Thinking about content each month; writing the articles; getting them proofed, printed, and distributed — and then starting all over again for the next month was a D-R-A-G.
This Solution has Made Subscribers Then the solution came in the night (seriously.) I would write the newsletter on my own time and give it to my employer for free. But in return, I would offer it to other EAPs, HR managers, and companies like yours.
Pinch Themselves in Total Disbelief
It was a win-win.
They got what they wanted, and I was able to create a solution so you would not have to buy a “canned” newsletter that you couldn't control, or that was written by a non-expert, untrained, free-lance writer--phooey!
My former employer (Arlington County government and public school system in Arlington, VA) now subscribes to FrontLine Employee and has done so since I launched it on my own in 2001. You can phone them if you wish to check me out -- 703-228-8723 -- and verify every word on this page.
Here is why they love it, and why all my subscribers do to.
Today, thousands of companies and hundreds of employee assistance programs subscribe to FrontLine Employee. Nearly five million employees read it EACH MONTH. And FrontLine Employee is available in Spanish.
- It’s e-mailed on time (a week early), ready to distribute with a hard copy sent for your records, if desired.
- You get your “OWN” newsletter and your own title if you desire. You can change or alter any content and you don't have to keep my copyright. You can insert your own articles and pictures.
- You can copy and distribute it to all employees and family members. You can create a PDF and e-mail it to employees or customers.
- You can put it on a password protected Web site.
- You can use the text from articles any way you wish, even if you already have a newsletter and are just looking for a great article sourcing company.
As you might guess, the renewal rate for FrontLine Employee is phenomenal because I have taken the pain out of EAP newsletter programs. That includes offering a flat rate price for small, medium, and large employers.
That’s what I promise to do for you. Everything I've discussed above is yours with FrontLine Employee. But there is more.
Here’s How It Works
Each month, FrontLine Employee comes in an e-mail attachment directly to you. No complicated downloading, linking to my Web site, or seeing my copyright and secret self-serving promotional links on your newsletter. It's totally yours. Others companies do that, but not me.
With me, you get the real deal. It’s as seamless as you can get.
FrontLine Employee arrives about 7 days before the first of the month. Relax, because you will have plenty of time to distribute it. And I have never been a day late in the 15 years I have been publishing newsletters.
You also get an optional hard copy if you need it for your records.
Your newsletter is ready to go. If you wish, I can set up your logo on the nameplate without charge. And if you ask me to use a unique name, it will appear at the top. (Remember, you will still be able to change anything in the newsletter.) I prepare your logo on the newsletter, if you wish to have one, and I do it for free.
Now, the Really Cool Part . . .
Your newsletter is sent to you in MS Word or MS Publisher™, the most common AND SIMPLE desktop publishing software programs on the planet. You probably have both already.
You can also get FrontLine Employee in MS Word-text only for your existing newsletter, MS Word with Graphics, MS Publisher 98 - 2007, PDF, or a PDF with your name, phone, logo, already done for you.
Just remember, however, that you don’t have to do a thing. FrontLine Employee is ready to go.
Here’s the key point: Everything — text, graphics, pictures — even the name of the publication — is subject to change by you!
FrontLine Employee is two pages, not four. That’s because I discovered a long time ago that employees don’t read four-page EAP newsletters. It's too much text!
You need frequency, not quantity. That is another secret to educating employees, promoting your employee assistance program, or education in general--frequency, not quantity.
However with a monthly two page newsletter, you receive 50% more readable content per year than a 4-page quarterly newsletter. Plus, quarterly newsletters make your program "second class citizen" competing against other programs in the organization. You're an afterthought and an infrequent newsletter shouts this out!
With FrontLine Employee, your Employee Assistance Program, human resources program, or your health clinic, etc. comes to life. You won't be forgotten. All of a sudden, you are talked about, referred to, and overnight become more central to the organization’s work culture with FrontLine Employee's help.
No Other Newsletter Does This Except
I use my industrial, workplace, and clinical experience to generate powerful and meaningful content for readers. No trivia, recipes, pulled quotes and long-winded articles, or space-filling cartoons.
You will get short, powerful, meaningful, punchy, easy-to-read articles that help employees reduce behavioral risk and have a positive effect on morale.
I write with the idea of increasing your program's utilization and making it worth more and be recognized as indispensable! And, frankly, it should be. If you are a provider of services to many companies, feel free to charge a small fee to have other companies help pay for FrontLine Employee. That way everyone wins.
You need to know that I have the qualifications under my belt, but I also have something that you don’t have — time to write a newsletter.
The articles in FrontLine Employee are so well-received, that they are used solely in the work-life-productivity newsletter distributed to the 12,000 employees of the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Small Business Administration headquarters in Washington, DC., and the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
I didn’t go to these work organizations. They came to me. You can take that as a guarantee that I will work hard for you too.

Tell Me What You Want In Your Newsletter
These requests get the first priority and receive the strongest consideration in my article planning. I want your ideas, because if they are important to you, then other companies probably have the same concerns. What better way is there to meet your needs? This will please management or your corporate customers more than anything else a newsletter can do.
For example, if employees are worried about downsizing, I will write an article about coping with uncertainty and facing the future of potential job loss, etc.
