Letter from the Editor
Welcome to our award-winning solution for HR professionals: "HR.BLR.com"—making HR compliance, training, and management easier!
We’ve been busy continually improving this must-have resource for human resource professionals. Just a few of the enhancements we’ve made lately include:
Numerous Content Tools — We’ve developed several new types of content to help you do your job better. For example, we include excel calculators on such topics as "cost per hire", "time to fill", "turnover cost" and many others to help you analyze and document your ROI and prioritize your management efforts.
Job Description Manager – Every time we ask how we can improve HR.BLR.com, you tell us you want more help with writing job descriptions. In addition to the sample job descriptions available on the site, you can now access and customize job descriptions for more than 2,400 job titles (or create ANY additional ones you want) and access salary data for these jobs as well.
Employee Newsletter Wizard — Now you can produce monthly employee training and safety newsletters at the click of a button. Use our ready-made newsletters as is, or customize articles and/or graphics. You can do as much or as little you want and easily create a critical communications element for your workplace.
Policy and Handbook Manager – You can also quickly customize and manage all your workplace policies by using our legally compliant template policies, customize and create your own workplace policy manual.
More Training — One of our most popular enhancements is our online training courses, called audio presentations, that allow you to conduct individual or classroom training at the click of a button. No preparation or presentation required!
Community — Our HR Forum is really YOUR HR Forum — in which you can ask over 3000 of your qualified peers about their experiences and perspectives on any aspect of your job, from applying the new FMLA legal developments, to how to handle a difficult employee. There are thousands of threads already that provide an excellent insight and resource for you.
MyHR.BLR.com — Now you can bookmark pages on the site, keep notes on any part of the site, and retain answers to your "ask the expert" questions. You can even manage them by creating and organizing in custom directories, right on the site, all in one place. Couldn’t be easier!
I'm proud of the Editorial Department here at BLR. We're fortunate to have an impressive complement of employment law attorneys, practitioners, and analysts, all of whom are dedicated to ensuring you get the most up-to-date and accurate analysis of legal developments in the human resources and compensation field.
