Employee Experience

Happiness: Only a Mug Away

For many people onboarding is simply a process to go through when you join a new company. Boxes to check off and steps to complete. Attend orientation, check! Meet your team, check! Get your computer, check! Make sure it works, hopefully check! But for me, onboarding is the entire reason I’m here. I...

The Power of Purpose

It’s true – most companies have some sort of philanthropic affiliation or platform that they boast and celebrate, but how many companies see it as more than a box to check off? I’m very happy to say that I work for a company that truly believes in the power of purpose, so much so that we collectively decided to include...

A Brilliant Intern Experience

Internships. When I began college a little over three years ago, I never would have anticipated how often I would hear that word or how much emphasis and importance people around me placed on them. To be honest, the thought of having to navigate through the entire process of applying to internships, interviewing, and working with way more experienced people...

Cabin fever

Years ago, a friend said to me, “You get cabin fever at work.” I was chatting her ear off on my commute cross-town, and I didn’t quite know what she meant at the time. Recently at our team off-site, I realized what she had been trying to tell me: I couldn’t always be myself at work. ...

In Pursuit of More

It’s September again, one of my favorite months of the year. Fall is on its way (or summer, if you’re in San Francisco), kids are headed back to school, and we get to celebrate another anniversary for Brilliant Ink. This year it’s birthday #6, and while there’s nothing particularly special about that number, it’s been a momentous year for us....

Going Places, Going Strong

Brilliant Inkies have a bit of an obsession with meaningful work, and especially helping girls and women pursue passionate, purposeful career paths. It’s why we recently established our Brilliant Futures Scholarship in partnership with Girls Inc. of Alameda County, and why we’ve teamed up with Dress for Success for their Power Walk and annual gala. More recently, we were privileged...

Secrets of a Celebrity CEO

A few weeks ago, a friend sent me a link to this article, exclaiming, “Can you believe how much these employees LOVE their CEO?!” Just in case you don’t have 6 ½ minutes to spare watching the video that accompanies this article (though you really should watch, because it’s quite a spectacle!), allow me to summarize: The CEO of online...
