“You don’t have to be a computer genius to develop a simple newsletter for your employees,” says Carrie Pedreiro, of DPS Dairy, with farms in Florida, Georgia and Mississippi.
Each month, Pedreiro puts out a newsletter for DPS employees that is chock-full of useful information.
She currently uses a software program called Microsoft Publisher to assemble the newsletter. “I think it is important to note that a simple newsletter can be easily accomplished in Publisher for someone with a basic understanding of (Microsoft) Word,” she says.
She says she devotes one week per month to the project. The printing and folding process takes about a half day, she adds, since the newsletter is distributed to about 400 people.
