BLR’s Launches HR Now App to Keep Human Resources Professionals Informed Via Mobile Devices

Brentwood, TN (February 23, 2015) – BLR®, the leading provider of compliance and training solutions for human resources, compensation, safety and environmental markets, announces the launch of HR Now, a Human Resources-specific mobile news application for users of iOS mobile devices.

HR Now delivers authoritative, up-to-date content on key topics that affect the execution of mission-critical tasks in the field of Human Resources Management. The application blends the latest employment law compliance news, HR tips, expert videos, blogs, and social media sources into a continuously updating feed. Users can choose specific areas of interest and customize their alerts. Much of HR How’s content is provided by BLR’s award-winning service

BLR’s expansive compliance resources made available in this new ad-free mobile application provide an opportunity for users to access important information while on-the-go and ensures they are notified of the latest information. With increasing regulatory activity in HR areas of responsibility involving FMLA, ADA, minimum wage, overtime classifications, harassment, discrimination and more, staying up-to-date is increasingly a challenge.
