Over the last year, Canadian HR Reporter has undertaken a number of critical changes and made investments to bring HR professionals and employers the news and information they need in whatever format they want.
We completely revamped and updated our website — www.hrreporter.com — adding more daily news content and multimedia elements like videos and webinars. We ensured it was mobile friendly, so you could browse on your smartphone or tablet.
We struck an innovative partnership with the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA), to give its 23,000 HR professionals a sample of our content and have renewed it for the coming year. We’re excited to announce a similar partnership for 2018 with the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources (CPHR) so that every HR association member in British Columbia, Alberta and the Territories will receive four sample issues — that’s another 11,600 readers on top of our normal national distribution.
Canadian HR Reporter has also paid close attention to the feedback you’ve given us over the years, and with that in mind we have some important news to share — starting in 2018, we are moving to a monthly publishing schedule.
This is not your typical media story of shrinking readers and cost cutting. As the profession grows, the readership of Canadian HR Reporter has exploded and the support from our advertisers and sponsors continues to be stronger.
We’re investing in more robust workplace issues and our reporters and editors will be taking deeper dives into the topics you care most about 12 times per year. As a result, you’ll see more content in the print and digital editions.
We also know you value currency in addition to in-depth features. That’s why we’re excited to announce Canadian HR Reporter WEEKLY. Every Wednesday, paid subscribers will receive an exclusive email with original content containing a link to a special 4-page digital edition.
The end result is more news and information from our award-winning editorial team than ever before.
Important: To ensure you get this content, we need your email address. You can go online to http://www.hrreporter.com/onlineaccess/ to update your email and password – or to enter your email address if you’ve haven’t done so already. This also gives you access to the online archive featuring tens of thousands of articles from past issues.
The National HR Awards has grown beyond its roots. It started out as a pure editorial endeavour — we wanted to share the stories of the best HR practices in Canada, and we told the stories in an in-depth way with full page articles and engaging videos. This year, we’ll be celebrating the winners at a gala cocktail reception in downtown Toronto on Oct. 24 — it promises to be a great night. There’s still time to join us. See www.nationalhrawards.com for more information.
We’re excited about the changes. It’s an extraordinary evolution and evidence of how strongly Thomson Reuters and Canadian HR Reporter are committed to growing with the HR profession. Launched in 1987, we’ve been the voice of the profession for the last three decades.
We’re committed to playing an even stronger role in the decades to come.
