If you've ever visited an online forum or discussion group, you know what an invaluable resource they can be. Even if you have the stickiest HR or safety question, the chances are good that some of your colleagues have faced the same issue -- and found a solution. While every response to your posts may not be perfect or complete, the collective wisdom of the group will almost always point you in the right direction. And you're likely to come across some ideas and approaches that never would have occurred to you.
At BLR, we have HR and EHS Forums that address dozens of important topics. The Forums are free and open to everyone, subscriber or not. And our team of experts regularly participates in the discussions to help ensure that you get quality, accurate information.
On the HR side, you'll find more than 3,000 of your colleagues participating in Forums on benefits and leave, compensation, performance and termination, staffing and training, and many other core issues. In our EHS Forums, more than 4,500 professionals share their expertise on such topics as OSHA and EPA compliance, safety and environmental best practices, emerging issues, and much more.
So, how can these Forums help you? Here's just one example. An HR Forums member recently asked whether anyone had an FMLA tracking template or spreadsheet that they would be willing to share. Soon thereafter a colleague stepped up and said she would email the one from her organization. That opened the floodgates -- dozens of other grateful HR people asked for -- and received -- the spreadsheet.
If you haven't stopped by yet, we invite you to visit our HR and EHS Forums and join the conversation. You'll find them here:
