How many online
employee handbooks have you created? Chances are the answer is zero, zip,
zilch, or nada. We, on the other hand, have become quite familiar with the
steps it takes to launch your new or updated company policies. As a result, we created
a checklist to keep a project like this organized and on track. This project
management is baked right in to Blissbook, but since not everyone gets to
experience the joy of this in-app functionality, we thought we’d share it with you
here as well.
Listed below are the common milestones you will achieve from the day you decide you want to redo your policies/handbook through your launch and follow-ups. Want these milestones to-go?
Funny seeing you here. After wearing our thinking caps and racking the brains of HR professionals and employment attorneys, we created an expansive resource on how to write policies and procedures. And, if that wasn’t enough, it even comes with a companion workbook. Now we’re talking!
Anyway, enough about us. To keep your HR, leadership and policy management game strong, check out the articles we found over the past couple weeks.

Article of the Week: Whoops, back to us. Normally we bury the Article of the Week and have you hunt for it by looking for the ✦. However, we’ll make it extra simple this time:
Surprise! It’s Friday. We know the days of the week are a little bit shaky right now, but it’s Friday nonetheless. Typically we’d be in the throes of March Madness, but it seems we’ve redefined that term. Still, while we’re on the topic…

Article of the Week:If only I had more time. There aren’t enough hours in the day. Since most of us have an overabundance of time, how can we make the most of it? This week’s highlighted article gives us ideas to move past our FOMO (look for the ✦ below).
Phone calls from your alma mater. Direct mail appeals featuring swoon-worthy puppies. Requests to buy Girl Scout cookies as you’re leaving the grocery store. We’re exposed to more fundraising pleas than ever before, so what is it that persuades us to feel philanthropic and reach into our wallets?
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “liking”? In the age of social media, your brain might have jumped to clicking on a thumbs-up or a heart. But liking dates back much earlier than Facebook and Twitter.

Envision you’re cruising down the highway, and a new song comes on the radio; it has a great beat and you enjoy the singer’s voice. A few days later, you hear the song and notice a lyric that really hits home, so you feel a connection – a similarity. By the fourth or fifth listen, you’re singing along with the chorus in your head because it’s familiar. It has now achieved Oooh-I-like-this-song! status.
To many, March Madness is more than just a basketball tournament. It promises bracket competitions, buzzer beaters, and the occasional Cinderella story. And when it comes to seeing the NCAA tournament in person, there’s madness indeed. At Duke, tickets to see the men’s Blue Devils are so highly demanded that fans can’t simply purchase tickets; instead, they must enter and win a lottery before being presented the opportunity to buy tickets. In other words, the stars must first align before the credit card can work its magic. So, what are these tickets worth? You’d be surprised.

We’re rebranding and are working harder than ever to provide you with the best policy management experience possible. Here’s a sneak peak at one part of our new brand:
After you pick your jaw up, why not take a look at some of the best HR, leadership, and policy management articles we found from the last couple of weeks. Enjoy and have a super-duper weekend!
