Old Saybrook, CT—January 21, 2011—The HR Daily Advisor® has announced the results of a December 2010 survey, The Biggest HR Concerns of 2011, which details the issues employers are most worried about in the coming year.

“This survey reveals which HR topics we’ll all have to watch closely in the coming year,” said HR Daily Advisor editor Stephen Bruce, PhD, PHR. “It’s a valuable tool for anyone facing 2011’s HR challenges.”
