Workforce magazine, the leading integrated information source for human resource professionals, has been acquired by Crain Communications, publisher of Electronic Media.
One of the oldest and largest continuously published periodicals in the country, Workforce, which covers news, trends and analysis in the human resources industry, marks its 80th anniversary this year. It was originally published as The Journal of Personnel Research and later as Personnel Journal.
Workforce was purchased from ACC Communications Inc., a family-owned business that has published the magazine for more than 60 years. ACC President Margaret Magnus will continue as Workforce publisher, and the publication’s headquarters will remain in Costa Mesa, Calif.
