Reveling in Resources

***I am on vacation and will only be sharing today’s entry for this week. ***

Bookmarks on my browser are a blessing. Below are some of my most often used reference resources which I have bookmarked for easy access. For some, I am also subscribed to receive update notifications. When I have questions, especially recently with all the COVID-19 related updates, I simply click on my bookmark and search for my answer.

Another excellent way to receive information is to run a web search for “Public Govdelivery” which will bring up a list of many government agencies with links on how to subscribe for their updates. There are so many! I subscribe to several of them including EEOC, DOJ, Homeland Security, DOL, and more.

A few favorites:

General Human Resources and Talent Development

HR Dive “HR Dive provides in-depth journalism and insight into the most impactful news and trends shaping human resources. The newsletters and website cover topics such as talent acquisition, learning and development, diversity and inclusion, compensation, benefits, onboarding, and more.”

TLNT – “TLNT serves up news, analysis and opinion on the business of HR for human resource and talent management leaders and professionals. Topics covered include analysis and insight into talent and HR management, training and development, benefits, compensation, legal/ethics, and HR software and technology, among others. TLNT also showcases highlights from the “best-of-the-rest” HR blogs, making this a one-stop shop for all things talent related.”

Association for Talent Development – formerly known as ASTD, ATD “supports the talent development profession by providing trusted content in the form of research, books, webcasts, events, and education programs. We host a variety of conferences several times a year, including the premier international gathering for talent development practitioners.”

O*NET Online – “the O*NET database, containing hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors on almost 1,000 occupations covering the entire U.S. economy. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated from input by a broad range of workers in each occupation.” The database also includes compensation information that can be filtered by state and metro area. When developing a job description, this is my first stop.

ATD Chattanooga – Low Cost Virtual Learning Events open to all. All events have been submitted for HRCI and SHRM-PDC recertification credits. Your area may also have a local/regional ATD chapter. I encourage you to look them up!


Employee Benefits News – “Employee Benefit News (EBN) is the primary media resource that benefit professionals rely on to navigate the complexities of employee benefit planning and delivery. As the dynamics of healthcare spending continue to shift, and benefit plans grow more complex, Employee Benefit News is there with the current awareness and insight benefit managers need to select, communicate and manage benefit programs to their employees.”

HR Law Updates

The Employer Handbook – blog by attorney Eric B. Meyer with Fisher Broyes. It’s relevant, funny, and timely.

FMLA Insights – blog by attorney Jeff Nowak with Littler Mendelson P.C.

Ohio Employer’s Law Blog (not just for OH) – blog by attorney Joh Hyman with Meyers Roman.


DOL Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Employer Guide – IMO, the best resource to become acclimated with FMLA or seek clarification as an employer.

Ask Jan - Job Accommodation Network – this is the go to stop for ADA accommodation questions and ideas. They also have sample forms available.


For Raffles/Drawings

Random Name Picker – for when you are an HR Dept of 1 and need to raffle something fairly.

Feel free to comment: What are your go to sites and resources?
