In the HR industry, change is quite normal as benefits, employee relations, and employment laws and regulations modify often. It’s important for business professionals (HR teams, hiring managers or general managers) to stay abreast of HR updates to remain compliant. Busy work schedules can make this a challenge for most professionals, but SEMA’s HR Hub offers a solution. Setting up alerts on the HR Hub based on your preferred parameters makes it easier to stay up to date on state laws in your local area.
