State-of-the-art technology means the digital format allows subscribers to turn the pages as you would with the paper version, with the added benefits of a search engine and live links to relevant websites.

Speaking about this market-leading step, acting editor of Personnel Today, Penny Wilson, said: “This is an exciting development for us. We are the first HR magazine to offer our readers this new technology.

“Now they can get Personnel Today faster and cheaper than ever before.”
