The Selling Advantage Review

Job Title: VP Marketing •  Organization: Burr Oak Tool

Consensus is everyone reads it because it is quick and offers good insights…The quick read format consistently delivers ideas.

Keep Up To Date On Payroll Review

August 27, 2013 by Amanda Martin • Rating: 4
Job Title: Payroll Specialist •  Organization: ANSYS, Inc.

Keep Up To Date On Payroll has exceeded expectations because it has reminded me of upcoming changes that I have forgotten about. Also, it has given HR updates that were beneficial. I like the format because it gives the “need to knows” and if you want to read more about it then the reference is cited. Likewise, if you don’t need to read more about an article then you don’t have a publication that is too big to read through.

Job Title: AP Technician •  Organization: Housing Authority County of Kern

It is short and to the point (brilliant). I will tag a specific publication and go back for reference. I keep all my publications in date order up to a year. The newsletter gives current and future changes in our field. I have learned how to handle some situations with vendors because of it. The Test Your Knowledge section is great, keeps you on your toes with making the right decision.

Safety Compliance Alert Review

March 3, 2013 by William Kellow • Rating: 4
Job Title: Safety Manager •  Organization: Kistler

I use Progressive Business Publication’s Safety Compliance Alert in our weekly toolbox talks with our crews. The meetings are usually not more than 15/20 minutes so the quick-read works nice! The newsletter has given me more information than any other source I have read. It is easy reading (short and simple) and it shows my crews how much other companies get fined; it opens my crew’s eyes big time for understanding how much OSHA is fining!!!

Keep Up to Date on Payroll Review

August 25, 2012 by Fred F. Thursfield • Rating: 4
Job Title: President •  Organization: Altoona Regional Health System Foundation

I have found the Nonprofit Board Report useful in opening up a dialogue with board members on topics related to their role in fundraising. Altoona Regional Health System Foundation for Life has not had much past success. I am attempting to build a culture of philanthropy in the hospital system. One of the focal points of my efforts is to increase board understanding that success requires their personal commitment of time, treasure, and talent. The Nonprofit Board Report seems to be an easy way to keep this message in front of our foundation board members. It also means I don’t have to always be the messenger. Having your newsletter is much like having a consultant available to reinforce a message or to promote dialogue on issues.

Job Title: Admin Assistant •  Organization: DCRSD

I find Progressive Business Publications newsletter helpful because it fits my situation. I like to see that other secretaries or admins to the CEO all face similar issues no matter where we live. It is a connection from my little desk to the big wide world of business.

APU is quick and to the point. It very often hits the nail on the head with important tips.

Information Technology Adviser Review

July 9, 2011 by Benita Dansby • Rating: 4

I find the quick-read format more valuable than other publications because I can read an entire article during a break or the entire newsletter during lunch. Information Technology Adviser is a great source for IT department information in quick bites.
