HRExaminer Names BLR Editors Among Top 25 Voices in Employment Law

Brentwood, TN —July 18, 2012—BLR announced today that HR Daily Advisor editor Stephen Bruce, PHR, and California Employer Daily editor Jennifer Carsen, JD, have been named among HRExaminer's Top 25 Voices in Employment Law. This is the first list from HRExaminer to measure online influence concerning legal issues in the HR industry, and the third list to be released this year.

"To do the research, we used the services of SocialEars, the service from HRMarketer," explained John Sumser in the recent release. Sumser is founder and editor-in-chief of the HRExaminer Online Magazine. "Sources range from Twitter, Facebook and blogs to a host of online publications and business periodicals. Rather than focusing on purely social media forms of communication, the SocialEars approach attempts to paint a clear picture of what’s available to be read, who wrote it and who is talking about it...One of the questions they try to answer is 'If I want to be heard on subject X, who should I be sure to talk to?'."

Stephen Bruce was previous listed #15 on Sumser's list of Top 25 HR Digital Influencers for 2011. "I am honored to be selected as a top online influencer in employment law," said Bruce. "It is important for HR to stay informed about changes in employment law, and as our industry continues to move into the digital marketplace, social media has become increasingly valuable to relay content to our audience."

“I’m thrilled to be part of this list,” said Jennifer Carsen. “HR is not an easy job, to say the least—but HR in California is particularly challenging, given the state’s uniquely complicated laws. It’s our privilege to provide HR professionals in California with timely updates on the news they need to do their jobs effectively.”

This list places Bruce and Carsen in good company - also mentioned are Drive ThruHR Co-Hosts William Tincup and Bryan Wempen, as well as attorneys Eric B. Meyer and Daniel A. Schwartz.
