Wednesday, September 30, 2009
ROCHESTER, NY / OAKVILLE, ON -- At the request of WhatTheyThink.com, the managers at PrintLink have published a definitive new human-resources guide for the printing industry. Entitled the HR Bible for the Printing Industry: A How-To Guide for Profitable Hiring, the book is intended to be the human-resources equivalent of the well-known Pocket Pal—since 1934 the standard, regularly updated guidebook on printing and pre-press technologies.
With headquarters in both the US and Canada, PrintLink is North America’s leading staff placement agency specializing in all positions and all facets of printing and graphic communications. Randy Davidson, WhatTheyThink’s president & CEO says: “PrintLink’s new HR Bible represents the kind of relevant, in-depth commentary and analysis from top industry experts that forms the core of the tools and services we offer our members to help them run their business more successfully.”
PrintLink’s president, Arnie Kahn, says: “The HR Bible consists of our most timely monthly articles for WhatTheyThink.com and addresses many of the real-life business and economic concerns that our clients in the printing industry raise with us every day. It outlines some of our practical solutions that have enabled HR professionals and hiring managers to secure and retain top-performing staff, optimize their performance, and ensure their continuing relevance to the changing needs of your business and your customers. In short, it explains the concepts and practical tactics that will enable you to maximize your human-capital investment—an essential component of business success in any economic climate.”
Frank Romano, Professor Emeritus, RIT School of Print Media and editor of the Pocket Pal, says: “The printing industry is all about people and the HR Bible is all about people. It is filled with useful insights on hiring, retaining, and motivating staff for the long term. The HR Bible for the Printing Industry should be your Bible. Read it and use it!”
Dr. Joe Webb, Director, WhatTheyThink Economics & Research Center, observes: In printing we're obsessed with technology and equipment, and sometimes it's too easy to forget that it's people who make a business work. Most business problems can be avoided with good employee selection and training, and fostering an environment that encourages open and welcome cooperation. Take some time and use this book to find ideas that can make daily interactions on the shop floor and in the offices more productive, more consistent, and create a more rewarding work experience for everyone.”
