reading magazineThe field of Human Resources changes on a regular basis.  It can change faster than we can keep up, so it is easy to lose track if we aren’t paying attention.  Many HR professionals reach out to publications that are circulated by accredited organizations and that provide a great deal of legislative changes, best practices and recruitment strategies for all industries and markets.

If you’re still fond of your print magazines, you will be happy to know that they haven’t gone the way of the cassette tape player just yet.  A number of companies still provide their publications in print, simply because many people still prefer to have a tangible, black and white copy of important information, especially when it pertains to something as important as Human Resources Management.

HR Magazine by SHRM

The Society for Human Resource Management prints a publication every month with a lot of helpful information concerning Human Resources in all types of workplaces.  Touted as the most popular HR magazine subscription in the world, the subscription costs are reasonable and the content is presented in a clear, concise way and touches on the issues that are most important to today’s busy HR professionals.

If you’re living within the United States, you can purchase an annual subscription for $70, two years for $100 or three for $140.   Subscriptions can be in print form or if you prefer, electronic form as well.

What truly sets the HR Magazine apart from the rest is the fact that it notifies its readers of any changes to recent legislation that may affect the workplace.  It is also good to know that every issue is dissected by SHRM’s legal team to ensure consistency and compliance.
