The Marlin Content Formula
Marlin’s subscription content is formulated to support your bottom-line goals. We understand the issues affecting today’s workplaces and we know the strategies that employers are using to drive results. Our team of award-winning designers, writers and researchers specializes in creating effective, engaging industry-specific content that promotes a safe, productive and healthy workplace.
Our OSHA-certified staff transforms the complex rules and regulations of your industry into simple, clear messages that employees understand.

Our ever-changing videos consistently promote a healthy, excellence-driven workplace culture. We regularly include messages on teamwork, productivity, accountability, and excellence.
Today’s employers face unique issues around employee morale. Marlin content includes the occasional trivia and seasonal video to boost the spirits of employees, and our collection of templates makes it easy for you to customize your own employee appreciation messages.
Our Content Addresses Many Key Issues, Including:
Accidents and on-the-job injuries are unfortunate and bad for morale, but they can also impact your bottom line. That’s why improving workplace safety should be a priority for any business. Marlin’s digital signage solutions can keep workplace safety top-of-mind and raise awareness of industry-specific issues.
Stress and work go hand-in-hand. But, too much stress can interfere with employee concentration and productivity. Our two-step approach to reducing job stress is 1] provide workers with ways to handle emotions in positive and constructive ways. And 2] provide light-hearted, humorous content to amuse workers on the job.
Boost your employees’ morale and help them keep a positive attitude by recognizing their achievements and reminding them of their importance. Marlin digital signage can help your workers feel appreciated with content that’s encouraging, helpful and sometimes even humorous.
Encouraging employees to look at the quality of their work as a source of personal pride can be a greater incentive than the company’s overall success. Marlin digital signage offers a variety of long-lasting, resonant messages that encourage continuous improvement—in output and daily performance.
“White-glove treatment” should be a goal for all businesses, but each industry has its own way of defining exceptional treatment. Marlin digital signage offers industry-specific content so you can communicate the messages that resonate best with your employees and improve customer service.
Building a workplace diversity program can be challenging and demanding. Marlin digital signage can help by raising awareness, promoting tolerance and acceptance. Our workplace communication experts have crafted sensitive employee communication that increases awareness and acceptance of all individuals.
When workers lose time due to illness or health issues, it can negatively affect other employees and their efficiency, time management, and the overall quality of work. This could lower profitability. Marlin digital signage encourages employee health and wellness by providing workers with tips and information for a healthier lifestyle. Topics include healthy eating, proper hand-washing techniques, cold and flu prevention, and exercise.
Marlin’s customer research consistently shows that employers want to encourage teamwork. At a time when collaboration is critical to productivity and innovation, Marlin digital signage content helps remind each and every employee that they’re part of a greater team—they’re “in it together.”
A zero-tolerance culture for workplace violence and bullying is vital in any workplace. Marlin digital signage helps convey this message consistently and frequently to help ensure that employees avoid workplace violence issues of all types, including gossip and bullying.
Marlin’s easy-to-use content management software offers templates and animated graphics designed specifically for your employee recognition program. In just a few clicks you can create personalized messages designed to keep your workers engaged and inspired.
Marlin also includes content creation tools that make it easy for you to communicate your message. Choose from our extensive library of static and animated templates to create quick and engaging content.

The Nuts and Bolts
The main components of a workplace digital signage system are the screens and media players. Customers have the option of using and installing their own hardware or sourcing it through Marlin. The screens Marlin provides and installs are made by LG. Selected for their high performance in 24/7 environments and their sharpness when viewed from a distance, these screens have been proven at thousands of locations.
Marlin’s media player is the “brains” of our digital signage system. It’s the hardware necessary to receive the message and push content to the screen.

Marlin can install your workplace digital signage screens and media player, or you can install them yourself. The Marlin system uses SaaS (Software as a Service), which enables you to access our content management system with a simple internet connection and web browser.
The Marlin system was designed to place minimal demands on IT. Maintenance is never an issue—ironclad warranties can be included with all Marlin-provided equipment. And Marlin’s software updates to the player can occur automatically.
After your system is up and running, your IT department still won’t be burdened. That’s because Marlin’s software is created for non-technical users and almost anyone can easily learn to post, edit, and manage content.
The Marlin system requires only a standard broadband internet connection. The access point can be wired or wireless. Also, the system caches content rather than streaming it, saving your network from unnecessary bandwidth demands.
Marlin’s system uses secure “pull” technology, so our content is never pushed to your media player. All communication is performed with 256-bit encryption. Your media player will run safely behind your firewall and run either your company’s anti-virus software or our turnkey solution.
