Each year the SHRMStore announces its top-selling 8 products based on customer sales. Plus, we’ve listed the Great 8 for popular categories such as SHRM-Published and Accessories.
Many of the titles on the list are repeats from 2012 and even 2011. The top sellers year-to-year include books, DVDs, and software specific to:
- Employment law compliance
- Harassment training
- HR management
- Employee relations
Though these topics are no surprise, this indicates that SHRM members and HR professionals have a critical need to keep their businesses out of court by staying in compliance with state and federal employment laws and providing required harassment training.
Managing the HR function (especially HR Departments of One) is also a resource-heavy requirement for which HR professionals are constantly developing themselves and their departments.
Performance reviews, managing employee issues, emotional intelligence training, and stay interviews stand out in the employee relations category..
Some break-out top sellers in 2013 include the GHS Hazard Communication Poster and the 2013-2014 Human Capital Benchmarking book. The December 1, 2013 deadline for training staff on the new Global Harmonized System (GHS) explains the poster’s debut on the Great 8. The Human Capital Benchmarking book is indicative of HR’s continuing focus on organizational profiling that allows similar companies to compare themselves to each other.
