Bugle #48: Your Org Needs Hockey Values

Happy Friday! As summer weather kicks into gear here in Atlanta, we’ve got another hot list of links for you. Below you can check out the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles from the last two weeks. We hope you enjoy and find these links useful.

Have a wonderful weekend!

✦ ✦ ✦

Article of the Week: We chose this week’s highlighted article (look for the below) because the Washington Capitals are Stanley Cup Champions and our co-founder Sam is a Caps super-fan. The article is another example of how the values that hockey players hold are great values for your employees to emulate.

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 #45: Even Dogs Want Fairness

A Happy Friday to You! We’re getting close to another release of something you’ve been asking for for a while: self-serve in-line color editing. You’ll soon be able to change the color of text and backgrounds to any color you want. Hooray!

Below is a little bit shorter than normal list of the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles we could find from the last couple of weeks.

Have a great week!

Bugle #44: The United States of Workaholics

It’s Tuesday, not Friday! We had a mini-vacation here at Blissbook so you’re getting a special mid-week Bugle. It took a couple of extra days, but we finally put together the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles we could find from the last couple of weeks.

Have a great week!

✦ ✦ ✦

Article of the Week: This week’s highlighted article (look for the below) is highlighted because it reminds us of a great Demetri Martin joke: “Now, I’ve met many chocoholics but I’ve never seen no chocohol. We got an epidemic people! People who love chocolate and don’t understand the rules of word endings. They’re probably over-workaholled.” Enjoy!

Bugle #41: Detailed Policy Version History Coming to Blissbook

Happy Friday Monday, Everyone! Better late than never, we’re coming to you with the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles from the last 2 weeks + 3 days.

Before we get to those, a quick announcement about a new feature coming this week: Version History!

You’ll be able to click this for any section in your handbook and see a diff of changes that have happened to that section’s content since your handbook was first published.

We hope your week is productive and filled with laughter!

Article of the Week: This week’s highlighted article (look for the below) is about culture fit. For the reasons outlined therein, try to look for culture add instead of culture fit.

Bugle #39: Managers are Scared to Talk to Employees

Happy February Friday! January 2018 is gone forever. That sure happened fast. Hopefully your first month was productive!

We made a few upgrades to Blissbook. The table of contents is improved, we fixed a number of bugs, the subscription flow is smoother, and your rehires are handled more elegantly. We also put together the week’s best HR, leadership, and policy management articles for you. We hope you enjoy giving these a look!

✦ ✦ ✦

Article of the Week: This week’s highlighted article (look for the below) reminds us why underneath our Plucky company value we have “You initiate difficult conversations even when it’s a difficult topic.” Hopefully this article can help you help your employees be Plucky too!

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 #36: Inside the Revolution at Etsy

Happy Hanukkah! And since we won’t be in touch again until the 29th, we’ll also wish you a Merry Christmas, Festivus, and any other holiday you celebrate! Whew.

Almost 2 weeks ago, we launched a whole new editing experience. This was a huge change, so we’ve spent the last couple of weeks cleaning things up and making tweaks. We’ve been using the new editor to help new customers import their handbook and man, is it nice. Please email us if you have any feedback or need help.

Lucky for you we still had time to compile the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles from the past 2 weeks. Enjoy and have a super weekend!

Bugle #30: Your Fall HR Reading List

Happy Friday Newsletter Friends! Did you know the reason why we organize our lives around a 7-day week is, quite literally, above our heads? Like many other calendars, today’s Gregorian calendar is ultimately based on the phases of the Moon. It takes the Moon around 29.5 days to cycle through all of its phases.

Now that that fun fact is out of the way, we’ll let you continue to the week’s best HR, leadership and policy management articles. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
