CHRC releases HR tools for the magazine industry
October 5th 2011
Over the past two years, the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) has been working closely with Magazines Canada to address the challenges the magazine industry is facing as a result of the recent economic recession, and more broadly as a result of the rapid transformative effect of digital technology on every aspect of the industry.
CHRC is pleased to announce the release of a series of HR tools developed collaboratively with industry professionals in response to their needs.
Mark Jamison, CEO of Magazines Canada, acknowledges the value of these tools to the industry: "Magazines Canada is pleased and proud to have participated closely with CHRC on the development of these valuable tools for the magazine publishing industry. They will help to identify training gaps and needs, and guide educators and trainers in ensuring that our industry has highly skilled professionals to continue producing the quality publications that Canadians expect."
The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) is committed to strengthening the cultural labour force, and strives to be at the centre of vision and forward thinking in the area of cultural human resources development.
These projects are funded by the Government of Canada's Sector Council Program.
