In November 2013, I sent an email to my Amtrak colleagues announcing plans to re-launch a Human Capital Newsletter. The plan for our newsletter was to send it via a quarterly email with the hopes of reaching all of Amtrak and to share major initiatives or areas of interest within Human Capital that may influence the careers of our more than 20,000 employees.
As our newsletter plans developed, we realized the greater goal for communicating was to provide a resource for employees — past, present and future. We understand there is a great deal of information pushed out daily, and your time is limited.
After great thought and many discussions to find a communication tool that will be informative, fun to read, authentic and transparent it is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of this online newsletter. An online newsletter dedicated to all Amtrak employees.
This online newsletter will focus on the work that the Amtrak Human Capital team is leading in support of employees at Amtrak. We will discuss major initiatives as related to our employee benefits, career development opportunities, diversity programs, our culture and more. Most importantly, you can read when your schedule will allow. Our quarterly emails will remind you that we’re here.
Listed below are 5 articles from the online newsletter that you might find interesting:
