Bugle #49: These HR Policies Are Legal Again

Happy Friday! Here’s something heartwarming for everyone in the northern hemisphere: for the next 6 months, each day will be shorter than the one before it. Womp womp. That was a downer. Now let’s bring you back up with the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles from the last two weeks! Enjoy and have a terrific weekend!

✦ ✦ ✦

Article of the Week: Whaaaaat? This week’s highlighted article (look for the below) is about HR policies??! That’s so surprising for a link article created by a company that makes policy management software. We’re as shocked as you are. 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!

✦ ✦ ✦

Article of the Week: We chose this week’s highlighted article (look for the below) because you’re awesome. Yeah, you. Remember what you used to be like? As in, right out of college? Not quite as awesome I bet. You’ve come a long way! Keep it up!

Bugle #38: No Phones on Break!

Happy Friday Friend! 2018 – this is the year all your dreams come true! You got this. We spent the last couple of weeks polishing off everything that fell out of our new editor updates, and we also patched up some issues with handling rehired employees.

Of course we also put together the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles from the past 2 weeks. Enjoy!

✦ ✦ ✦

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.

Bugle #26: You Are Valued

Feliz Friday Fine Friends! Another week gone to the ether. We spent ours working on Blissbook’s not-so-top-secret new handbook editor, which we’ll continue in the weeks to come. A lot left to do but we’re making great progress!

Thankfully, we still had time to gather the best HR, leadership and policy management articles just for you. Happy weekend! 🎉

Article of the Week: Whenever an article is a 100% match for the title of the category it’s in, it deserves to be the week’s highlighted article (look for the below). With that said, thank you, dear reader, for signing up for this newsletter. You are valued. Without you, we’d be talking to ourselves and even though that’s not a bad thing, it’s just not the purpose of writing a newsletter.

Bugle #18: Does Diversity Training Encourage Bias?

It’s Friday – toot toot! The bugle is here with the week’s best HR, leadership and policy management articles. Enjoy!

✦ ✦ ✦

Article of the Week: We chose this week’s highlight (look for the below) because it’s surprising at first glance, but then not so surprising once you read what makes the answer to the headline “yes”. Humans are weird.

The Bugle #15: How to Manage Millennials

Happy Doce de Mayo! We have a special newsletter this week. Sometimes a piece of content is so valuable it deserves undivided attention. Today, we’re sharing a video from Simon Sinek about technology, millennials, and the importance of practicing empathy. Enjoy!

Become a Better You

Simon Sinek discusses the millennial generation, how they aren’t prepared for real life, and why it’s important that we help them instead of denigrate them.
