Workplace relationships are the most important topic you can discuss in your workplace wellness newsletter or employee newsletter. Corporate health demands effective relationships otherwise it is all for naught--the mission and goal of the organization is down the tubes.
Workplace relationships fall into four key categories, all of which can be subdivided into further interesting topics. Once you have these sub-divisions, it becomes much easier to write specifically with actionable information that employees can use to improve harmony around them, manage stress more effectively, and add to their increased productivity. Of course, this is the bottom line for the organization--productivity and increased financial viability and stability.
Avoiding workplace relationship development and improving relationship articles in your in-house publication (employee or workplace wellness newsletter) will cause you to lose readership and undermine the value of your efforts. Indeed, this topic is the one most desired by employees and the one topic they will remember seeing the most. It's all about relationships--relationships are our life. It's very simple..
Workplace employee newsletter articles associated with relationship improvement include: employee to employee; employee to supervisor; employee to organization; and, employee to customer. Here is how to subdivide these topics: 1) Go to http://ezinearticles.com. 2) Type any of these categories in this way "employee relationships with employees" into the search bar. Wallah! See the ideas. Start looking at content. You will get many ideas for sub-division. Do not lift copy because this information is copyrighted. Instead look for ideas. For example, "employee relationships with fellow workers who are about to be fired."
Write these words down on a piece of paper next to your desk. What, Why, Who, When, Which, How, Value, Benefit, and What to Do Next. Next, attempt to formulate open ended questions about these topics and arrange them in order. Example: What issues are associated with employees who about to be fired with those who are not? Why is it important to know about these issues and how to deal with them. What is the risk or risks to the organization of not focusing on helping educating employees about this topic. Notice how the broad case for employee workplace communication underlies all of these topics.
Complete the process with who, when, which, etc. Google each phrase for further content ideas. Re-write content ideas, not content. Use your own words and your life experience. Place thing sinthe proper order and your article is done. Now trim it for size to fit the space you are allowed in your newsletter. I 100% guarantee that you can cut a 200 word article to 100 words if needed. Simply throw out what is wordy, redundant, or interesting but not directly associated with the workplace wellness article topic. I would suggest you write about workplace relationships in every newsletter for wellness that you issue and distribute to employees. We will discuss employee relationships with the boss and performance reviews in the next post.
