Staff letters

in Admin Pro Forum

A staff newsletter is one of the most powerful and creative tools an organization can use to communicate with its employees. Do you help produce one for your organization? If so, what makes it outstanding or unique? What tools and sources do you use to pull it together?

Tell me about it, so I can include your story in an upcoming issue of Personal Report. Either post here or e-mail me directly at admineditor@nibm.net. (If you post on the Forum, make sure you leave your e-mail address, so I can contact you.)

I publish a quarterly newsletter for a small warehouse facility. I include significant anniversaries (i.e. 5 yr, 10 yr, etc.), upcoming events, our current safety figures for the previous month (i.e. number of days with no accidents, hours worked with no accidents, etc.), near miss and/or accidents. I also include a safety corner with an article about a safety topic which I get from many places including magazine articles from OSHA or other place, as well as an online search where I also obtain articles. We also have a column from our Facility Manager as well as our HR Manager. Sometimes I may also include a joke or riddle if there's room left.

My team and I create a monthly newsletter designed specifically to inform, train and update the Administrative Assistants at our headquarter location. We have included articles dealing with how to reduce stress, time management, how to avoid procrastination, etc., web links to sites we feel are valuable tools, tip & tricks of the trade, grammar goofs, "quote of the month", and many more items and articles. At the beginning of every month it is one of the most anticipated tools we provide our Admins.
