Introduction

James Tehrani joined Workforce as copy desk chief in 2010 and was promoted to assistant managing editor in 2013. In this role, Tehrani is responsible for editing and fact-checking content for the magazine, website and newsletters as well as writing headlines and posting stories on the website. He also is in charge of maintaining Workforce style. He has won multiple awards for his headlines, including Headline Writer of the Year for Non-Newspapers in 2012 and 2013 from the American Copy Editors Society. He also oversaw the content for the magazine's 90th anniversary coverage in 2012, which was a finalist for a Neal Award from American Business Media.

Tehrani, joined Workforce from Modern Healthcare where he served as copy editor. At Modern Healthcare, Tehrani worked on an award-winning copy desk that won three headline-writing awards, including a Gold Award from the American Society of Business Publication Editors. He also won a Bronze Award from the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors for a special supplement he supervised marking the 20th anniversary of Modern Healthcare’s Up & Comers program.

A graduate of the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism, Tehrani has previously been a senior editor and senior copy editor for Consumers Digest and ChinaOnline, respectively, and copy editor at Electronic Media (now known as TV Week).

After college, Tehrani started his own magazine called Classic Comedian, which took a serious look at the world of comedy.

He agrees whole-heartedly with this quote from Will Rogers: "It isn’t what we know that gives us trouble, it’s what we know that ain’t so."
