Dear Professionals
I wish to start a monthly HR Newsletter for the company. I require advice on what should go in as the content. What are the critical subjects that needs to be covered. I would highly appreciate if anyone could share a newsletter in this forum.

Hi

Take a couple of house magazines and if possible access some e-magazines for you to get a feel of the wide variety of content to choose from. You will have to choose the type of columns you wish to have, any new content/ column specific to your corporate and any innovate matter that you wish to have in your e- magazine.

Bear in mind the following if planning n e-magazine
- Be clear about why you are coming out with the e-magazine, the message that you want to convey, the target audience, the perceived influence of the effort and the implications of the initiative.
- while immediacy of circulation and cost savings are the greatest benefits, the size must be curtailed for people do not have the have the habit of reading online. You must discourage people from printing the e-magazine for reading or the savings will be wiped out.
- Pay attention to periodicy, font, layout, visual appeal and readability.
- have a editorial team and department wise representatives to source content for the magazine. Ensure that you have ample material for at least 2 editions in place before you launch the magazine.
- Have a policy in place for the screening and selection of content or you will end up publishing plagiarized and hackneyed internet forwards.
- Editing and proof reading must be of a very high standard since the e-magazine could be circulated outside too very easily.

For the content some suggestions are as under
- editorial
- company news / happenings eg. new orders, new joinees, achievements of employees or their immediate family, awards and recognition, message from chairman etc.
- to get employee involvement run a competitions like crosswords, cartoon contest, safety week slogans, quality circle inputs etc. Announce awards and list names of winners.
- have columns on humor, management lessons, book review, personality profile of senior executives, contributions by staff members, inspirational and motivational content.

I would also invite you to visit the following blogs to get an idea of some Inspirational and Motivational content

Best Wishes.

Dear Prodigy
Please do not restrict the contents of your News Letter only to HR. Make this an Activity News Letter of your organization. Restricting it to HR will create a lot of problems from within the organization itself. I hope you understand.
