Free Subscription to Human Times for Josh Bersin Academy Members

August 5th, 2020

The Josh Bersin Academy today announced that Academy members have free access to the World of Work global HR news service for the next year as the result of a timely new partnership with Human Times.

World of Work is the world’s leading HR-oriented business news database, providing access to the latest workforce-related news as reported daily across more than 200 respected international news outlets, including Bloomberg, Wall St Journal, Washington Post, Forbes, Fortune, BBC News, The Economist, Financial Times, Reuters, Personnel Today, The Times of India, South Morning China Post, The Sydney Morning Herald, Le Monde/Le Figaro, Bild, and Die Welt.

World of Work currently contains 30,000-plus news stories, all summarized from a workforce-related perspective. The database is updated daily, with around 150 new stories added each week. Subscribers can conduct an unlimited number of searches using various criteria and then compile results annotated reports for sharing with colleagues by email.

“We are delighted to make this important resource available to our members. Now, more than ever, it is important that HR professionals stay up-to-the-minute on the economy, workforce trends, and major employer initiatives around the world.” said Josh Bersin, dean of the Josh Bersin Academy. “The World of Work database gives HR professionals the ability to search for news related to today’s most relevant topics, such as employment, leadership, diversity or compensation and filter by date, region, or industry sector. It’s an important source of news that I use every week.”

“The World of Work provides the latest business intelligence through an HR lens. We couldn’t have a more fitting partner than the Josh Bersin Academy, whose raison d’etre is to connect HR professionals with the latest thinking in a single place,” commented Richard Phelps, founder of Human Times. “Real-life examples and data help win arguments and affect change and, in common with the Academy, that’s what we set out to provide. We look forward to welcoming the Academy’s members to our service.”

A standard subscription to the World of Work is valued at £235 (or approximately $300). Each story is categorized by date, industry, source, topic, region and country; stories are also tagged by topic – such as productivity, diversity, employment law, learning and development, HR technology, and coronavirus.
