We know it's not good form to brag, but, as Dizzy Dean reportedly said, "It ain't braggin' if it's true."
And the truth is this: Two of BLR's compliance portal websites have been selected as finalists in the 25th Annual CODiE Awards, sponsored by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA).HR.BLR.com was chosen as a finalist for the second consecutive year in the categories of Best Online Government Information Service and Best Solution Integrating Content into Workflow. Enviro.BLR.com was named a finalist in the category of Best Online Government Information Service. Forty-eight products from 30 companies were selected as finalists in the content categories of the competition, selected from more than 100 nominations submitted by 65 companies.
"This is the 25th year we have recognized excellence through the CODiE Awards program, and the 9th year we have offered awards in the content categories," said Ken Wasch, president of SIIA. "The competition is tough, as many companies are looking to make their products stand out from the competition. The innovations in the content industry shine through in the products selected as finalists, and we are very excited to see how the voting goes this year."
HR.BLR.com helps HR practitioners and business owners manage human resources and employment law issues and requirements. This on-demand, Web-based portal features national and state-specific compliance guidance on more than 200 topics, including discrimination, medical leave, sexual harassment, termination, and unions. The website also provides daily news and tips, community forums, a weekly newsletter, policy and salary applications, and hundreds of training tools such as ready-to-use forms, customizable company policies, and job descriptions.
Enviro.BLR.com delivers up-to-the-minute state and federal regulatory updates and news to environmental health and safety professionals to help them stay on top of ever-changing environmental rules and regulations. It's an on-demand, Web-based compliance portal that includes a complete library of regulatory proposals and requirements, prewritten sample plans, training tools, checklists, forms, and guidance documents, as well as BLR best practice white papers and reports.
Our founder and CEO, Bob Brady, said, "The selection of HR.BLR.com and Enviro.BLR.com as CODiE finalists by industry leaders reinforces the impact that our sites have on the professionals and organizations that use them. BLR is a leader in providing companies with expertly designed resources to streamline workflow, and to reduce the risk and cost involved in complying with state and federal employment, safety, and environmental rules and regulations."
This is not the first time BLR products have been honored the SIIA. In addition to HR.BLR.com's finalist selection last year, our Employee Training Center won the CODiE for Best Workforce Training Solution.
We're proud of this recognition—justifiably, we think—because we've worked hard to make these portals the "go to" resources for busy HR and EHS professionals. If you're not familiar with these products, we invite you to take a quick online tour and find out what all the buzz is about.
