A couple of years ago, Canadian HR Reporter developed an internal mantra. Unofficially, it is “to provide HR professionals with the information they need in whatever format they want.”
Last week, we took another giant leap forward in delivering on that promise with the launch of the Canadian HR Reporter app.
No, you can’t fling Angry Birds at the accounting departments or structures of dubious quality. (At least, not yet.) But you can view the publication in its original print layout on a variety of devices including iPads, iPhones, iPods and Android phones.
It’s very cool, easy to access and free. The app is available from the Apple app store (iTunes) or Google Play (formerly Android Market) and paid subscribers to the print issue of Canadian HR Reporter can download issues at no cost.
Simply go to these online stores on your mobile device and search for Canadian HR Reporter, then download the app.
As a subscriber, just enter the email address you use to access Canadian HR Reporter’s website when prompted by the app. If your email address isn’t on file, you’ll need to update your profile to gain access.
Simply go to www.hrreporter.com/onlineaccess and enter the first name, last name and postal code as it appears on your mailing label.
The app itself does plenty of cool things. You can read the paper — just like it looks in print — anywhere you go and it’s very intuitive. Just swipe the screen to flip pages or pinch to zoom in and out.
You can also click on related links and watch videos. Interested in an ad? Simply click on its URL and you’ll be taken to that company’s website.
If you don’t have a mobile device, you can access the digital edition of Canadian HR Reporter on your desktop or laptop. Just make sure you’re signed up for online access (see above) and you’ll receive an email every two weeks with a link to the latest digital edition.
We hope you like the new app. We’re constantly investing in new technology to bring our readers the best experience.
And if you’re a big fan of the print issue of Canadian HR Reporter, don’t worry, it’s not going anywhere. The new app and digital edition are designed to enhance, not replace, your print subscription.
Bonus for students
The 2012 issue of our student publication, HRP, is also available. It’s packed with information for people thinking about a career in HR, along with those about to graduate and start their HR careers or HR professionals looking for professional development.
This 44-page online magazine features a range of articles, including:
• a profile of Jaci Edgeworth, the head of HR at Lululemon and a key driver behind the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, and how she got to where she is today
• advice on how to network like a professional
• tips on landing your first job
• how to manage your online presence.
Plus there’s lots more. To access HRP, simply go to www.hrreporter.com/students and click on the cover image. And again, you can view the publication for free — all you have to do is enter your email address.
