Workforce Magazine

Workforce is a multimedia publication that covers the intersection of people management and business strategy. Our community of senior-level human resources executives and C-level officers are the key decision-makers on talent management matters in the 2,500 largest corporations in America. They read us for our editorial focus and relevance to help them improve their business -- and their bottom line -- through effective management of the workforce. While employees and executives often bemoan the bureaucratic nature of HR processes, companies increasingly realize they need to be smarter about the ways they attract, retain and train their workforce. Our content helps HR professionals approach their jobs from a more strategic, big-picture, business-results perspective.
