Bugle #54: Blissbook Now Has Automatic Reminders

Happy October! We just had the second-hottest September on record here in Atlanta, so we’re hoping the calendar change will bring some shade.

That said, we’re staying hot at Blissbook, as we just launched automatic reminders! Now you can set up a cadence of reminders to be sent to all the slackers out there who won’t sign their handbook. Get in touch with us if you want to be one of the first to try it out.

As always, the Bugle is here with the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles we found from the last couple of weeks. Enjoy!

Bugle #46: You’re Awesome (Yeah You!)

A Happy Friday Tuesday Colors Day to You! OK, that isn’t a real holiday, but we’re celebrating anyways with a new update that allows you to customize all the colors in your handbook (without having us do it for you):

We apologize for the delay in getting you the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles we could find from the last couple of weeks. We think it was worth it!

Bugle #43: Employees Really Want: Career, Community & Cause

Friday is here, woo hoo! Baseball season started yesterday, so we’re in a good mood here at Blissbook HQ. Our product update from the last 2 weeks is a small one. We made it easy to send someone (legal counsel, perhaps) an individual policy for review. You can now print any version of any individual policy back to the first time you published to a PDF, making it easy to share!

We also had a chance to put together the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles we could find from the last 2 weeks.

Have a good great Friday and weekend!

Article of the Week: This week’s highlighted article (look for the below) is inspired by a recent 3-day spell sans smartphone. By the third day, I wasn’t instinctively reaching for it in those situations where you often do (like when you’re stopped at a red light that you know takes forever to turn green). It was nice to just look around instead and I promised myself I wouldn’t look at my phone at stoplights anymore. So far, so good.
