Tips for Using Step Wisely Display Materials

  1. To keep the message fresh, use one topic for a few weeks then switch to another for a few weeks and so on.
  2. Mini fliers have a variety of uses. Be creative; try inserting them into payroll envelopes, sending via e-mail, placing on desks, distributing in employee mailboxes, handing out at meetings, posting to an intranet.
  3. Send e-mails every so often to staff to reinforce the messages on display materials.

Training Materials Support Awareness
