After more than 32 years, Canadian HR Reporter needed a new look. We had stayed true to the large, newspaper-style format for decades, but by 2020, it was time for a change. And it's a really exciting transformation. Bolder headlines, dramatic imagery, a clean layout — while still featuring the same great content for our HR readers. And the size. I confess, when I joined the publication many years ago, I asked about the possibility of reducing the size from the somewhat-awkward tabloid format. It was also a common refrain in our reader surveys: "Love the articles, don't like the large size." But I was always met with a firm "No." A big reason for the 11-by-14 dimensions was the mission to be a newsmagazine, with a strong focus on journalistic content. Happily, with the new design, we've managed to maintain that goal while still providing the same number of articles, features and columns in a smaller, more manageable size. We hope you like the new look. Lots to explore We're also very excited to introduce our new editorial advisory board on pg. 30. This group of well- respected professionals from the HR, legal and academic communities has agreed to provide us with their perspectives on an informal basis. We are so grateful they are onboard and look forward to improved content and insights thanks to their involvement. As usual, we have employment law covered, with three features delving into "dependent" contractors; the duty to inquire around mental illness; and working-from-home legalities. Plus, Jeffrey Smith provides another in-depth column, this time looking at a fitness worker's claims of discrimination and harassment, while Laura Williams of Williams HR delves into the overpayment issue. On the newsy side, be sure to check out John Dujay's article looking at the issue of travel and cannabis. Judging by a new survey, a lot of people don't know the rules, and that could lead to problems for employees and employers, even when it involves personal travel. And in "Breaking through the glass ceiling," we take a look at how women's personalities may be a hindrance when it comes to rising to the top. We're very excited to introduce our new editorial advisory board who will provide perspectives on an ongoing basis.
