Website upgrades - advance warning

Some of the HRM Guide websites will be moved to new servers over the next few days. This is to allow easier and more frequent updating.

Unfortunately, this means that some pages will be unavailable while content is uploaded to the new servers and their new addresses are propagated across the worldwide web.

This disturbance will affect pages on hrmguide.net (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, US and Student HR) and hrmguide.com (USA pages). The UK site and hr-topics.com (News Releases) were moved last year and should not be affected.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
