Employee Assistance Leader Integrates LifeSpeak Self-Directed
Online Learning Platform Into Product Offering

NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2010 — Harris Rothenberg International (HRI), a leading employer and employee resource firm, today announced a partnership with LifeSpeak Inc. to incorporate LifeSpeak On Demand into HRI's existing Employee Assistance Program (EAP) suite of services. At a time when performance and productivity is paramount to bottom line performance, LifeSpeak On Demand enables employees work, learn and thrive on their own schedule.

"We live in a 'TiVo®' world where we are in control of when, how, and what information we receive and absorb. Why should on-the-job learning be any different?" said Chris Cavazos, HRI's chief operating officer. "LifeSpeak On Demand builds upon HRI's existing library of personal finance and health and wellness resources -- giving our clients and their employees and household family members access to a growing library of expert-led support and learning topics that span both professional and personal issues. Allowing employees to take advantage of these engaging and informative programs, at their discretion, removes the barriers to access that sometimes stifle employee support and improvement programs."

LifeSpeak On Demand is an innovative online offering that allows employees to view high-quality streaming video clips of leading experts, including nationally recognized speakers and authors, speaking on a variety of health, wellness, and family topics. This e-learning tool gives employees and their families trusted, vetted information, delivered in an accessible manner, whenever and wherever they need it, at the click of a mouse. With LifeSpeak On Demand, access to high-caliber expertise and advice is not limited by work, travel or vacation schedules, nor by employee location. Each topic is lead by a subject-matter expert and includes six, 6-10 minute modules, including a "Frequently Asked Questions" segment, and a printable information tip sheet that is written by the expert. New monthly online chats allow employees and managers alike to interact and ask questions of leading experts from a variety of fields.

"We are thrilled to partner with HRI, a recognized leader in employee assistance," said Anna Mittag, Director of Partner Relations, LifeSpeak Inc. "We look forward to bringing our content to the thousands of employees covered through HRI's suite of services, and learning from them what new topics and experts are of value to today's employees as they face a dynamically changing work and home environment."
