Personnel Journal Wins Service Award for Distributing Information on AIDS
Personnel Journal, the Costa Mesa-based magazine for human resources executives, won the 1988 Maggie Award for Public Service for its free clearinghouse of AIDS information for employers.
The award, bestowed by the Western Publications Assn., honored the 65-year-old magazine for its efforts to create a single source of information about acquired immune deficiency syndrome and the workplace.
As part of the clearinghouse, Personnel Journal has published two guides, the most recent of which is a directory of more than 50 organizations, educational programs, consultants and articles about ways for employers--both large and small--to grapple with the disease.
Included in the guide are listings for services ranging from the AFL-CIO’S $2.50 “The AIDS Book: Information for Workers,” to a $400 Harvard University-sponsored seminar for corporate executives called “AIDS in the Workplace: Medical Information, Legal Issues and Employer Responsibilities.”
Since the information program was started last Labor Day, Personnel Journal has received more than 1,000 requests for information, Editor Margaret Magnus said.
Employers can get a free copy of the most recent edition of “The Workplace & AIDS” by writing to Magnus at Personnel Journal, 245 Fischer Ave., B-2, Costa Mesa 92626, or by calling (714) 751-1883.
