There are hundreds of HR blogs on the web – some good, some great, some popular, some unnoticed. I’ve put together what I think is the best of the web, at least the web that I have seen (don’t be offended if you didn’t make the list).
Whatever kind of HR information you are looking for, whether it’s legal information, best practices, news, trends, or opinions, you can find it here. (The following pages are listed in no particular order.)
HR.BLR.com reports unbiased HR news. It’s a no-nonsense site for keeping up to date.
