Forward Features 2018

We don’t operate a standard forward features list of monthly themes because we are online-only. If an article is fresh, insightful and interesting to our audience, we will post it.

As an HR site, we are mostly concerned with how we can help HR prepare for the future of work and how HR can solve modern workplace challenges.

Basically, if an article can help HR do their jobs better with insight and advice, we’re interested.
