PrintLink publishes human resources guide for printing industry
At the request of renowned printing-industry news source WhatTheyThink.com, the managers at
PrintLink have published a definitive new
human-resources guide for the printing industry.  Entitled the HR Bible for the Printing Industry:  A
How-To Guide for Profitable Hiring, the book is intended to be the human-resources equivalent of the
well-known Pocket Pal—since 1934 the standard, regularly updated guidebook on printing and pre-
press technologies.
With headquarters in both the US and Canada, PrintLink is North America’s leading staff placement
agency specializing in all positions and all facets of printing and graphic communications.  Randy
Davidson, WhatTheyThink’s president & CEO says:  “PrintLink’s new HR Bible represents the kind of
relevant, in-depth commentary and analysis from top industry experts that forms the core of the tools
and services we offer our members to help them run their business more successfully.”
PrintLink’s president, Arnie Kahn, says:  “The HR Bible consists of our most timely monthly articles
for WhatTheyThink.com and addresses many of the real-life business and economic concerns that our
clients in the printing industry raise with us every day.  It outlines some of our practical solutions that
have enabled HR professionals and hiring managers to secure and retain top-performing staff, optimize
their performance, and ensure their continuing relevance to the changing needs of your business and
your customers. In short, it explains the concepts and practical tactics that will enable you to maximize
your human-capital investment—an essential component of business success in any economic climate.”
Frank Romano, Professor Emeritus, RIT School of Print Media and editor of the Pocket Pal, says:
“The printing industry is all about people and the HR Bible is all about people. It is filled with useful
insights on hiring, retaining, and motivating staff for the long term.  The HR Bible for the Printing
Industry should be your Bible. Read it and use it!”
Dr. Joe Webb, Director, WhatTheyThink Economics & Research Center, observes:  In printing we're
obsessed with technology and equipment, and sometimes it's too easy to forget that it's people who
make a business work.  Most business problems can be avoided with good employee selection and
training, and fostering an environment that encourages open and welcome cooperation. Take some time
and use this book to find ideas that can make daily interactions on the shop floor and in the offices more
productive, more consistent, and create a more rewarding work experience for everyone.”
Starting September 2009, the HR Bible for the Printing Industry will be available for $175 USD in
WhatTheyThink’s online store at https://store.whattheythink.com/
