Thompson Publishing Company and Helios HR Set to Release "An Essential Guide to HR Administration"

Guide Provides End-to-End Knowledge on Modern HR Best Practices

WASHINGTON, DC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/09/07 -- Thompson Publishing Company and Helios HR announced today the forthcoming release of "An Essential Guide to HR Administration." Written by Helios HR CEO Kathy Albarado, Helios HR's Michele Wirth and other members of the Helios team, the book was released October 1, 2007 with a retail list price of $299.

This Guide to HR Administration provides HR generalists and administrators easy-to-read summaries of compliance requirements, best practices and indispensable tools like checklists, sample forms and policies. The book addresses several critical trends affecting the HR profession.

Users of the Guide will learn:

--  How to protect organizations by utilizing legally compliant practices
    and procedures.
--  Ways to become more effective and efficient in HR procedures to
    support bottom-line results.
--  Best practices to manage employee performance and keep employees
--  HR's corporate role is expanding and diversifying, making it important
    to obtain important knowledge and best practice suggestions to improve
    service to the organization and employees.

"We are thrilled to have been asked by Thompson to author such an important book for the marketplace," said Kathy Albarado, president of Helios HR. "We wanted the 'Guide' to help everyone from the seasoned HR professional to administrative staff with HR responsibilities but little or no formal training or guidance. We could not have achieved this noteworthy accomplishment without the excellent contributions of the Helios team."

"There are several critical trends impacting the management of our human resources," said Phil Gabel, president & CEO, Thompson Publishing. "Such trends are forcing organizations to evolve and adapt. These changes are influenced by the limited availability of a qualified workforce, the impact procedures make on productivity, profitability and an organization's ability to scale. Helios HR understands the dynamics of the HR profession on a national basis and was the ideal company to write 'An Essential Guide to HR Administration.'"

The book breaks the HR field down into eight areas: recruiting and interviewing; orientation and assimilation; employee records management; benefits administration; performance management; employee separation and exits; creating an employee handbook; and promoting a respectful workplace. Each chapter focuses on common pitfalls and ways to avoid them, problem-solving guidance, and ways to increase efficiency.
