Focus on: HR Books

 

We were recently invited by NEHRA (Northeast Human Resources Association) to set up a store at their annual conference at the Sea Crest Hotel. We were delighted to participate and thoroughly enjoyed meeting a lovely group of people. At the conference we offered a small selection of books, comprised of books written by authors featured at the conference, recommendations from NEHRA, and a couple of our favorites. Here is the list of books featured; if you are interested in purchasing any of these books, please use our website or call us (508.548.5548).
