Welcome to Right Moves! Every day in the Last Frontier Alaskans are finding new positions, moving up the ranks at their current employer, or pursuing professional development through ongoing education and certifications. We’re pleased to share all of this positive career movement whenever we can, so here you’ll find Alaska-based job hires, promotions, and professional certifications.
And since people are the foundation of every business, in HR Matters we’ve asked local experts to offer their guidance on human resource trends, issues, and best practices, as well as listing articles from around the state about what businesses—and their employees—are doing to keep the focus on the people.
