Leadership

Will your company take a stand?

The response to recently passed legislation in North Carolina - widely viewed as the most sweeping anti-LGBT law in the country - has been loud and widespread. Musicians have cancelled concerts, organizations have pulled conferences and other events, and increasingly, companies are expressing their disapproval. Paypal and Deutsche have both cancelled plans to expand operations to North Carolina, citing the discriminatory...

Benefits: Employee Healthcare

All Aboard the Benefit Express!

Ah employee health care. One of the most important benefits that employers can offer, and yet it can be so overwhelming and confusing to switch to a new provider. At Brilliant Ink, we are currently in the process of switching benefit providers and while there have been some hiccups, ultimately it will be the most beneficial choice for our team....

Start with WHY

The Brilliant Ink team recently gathered for our annual team offsite to set our goals and priorities for the year. I always love these opportunities to step away from our day-to-day work, and this year’s session was particularly meaningful for me, as 2016 will mark my first full year as CEO. While we spent much of our session discussing ways...

Taking the Leap

At Brilliant Ink, we often talk about the importance of “practicing what we preach.” After all, how can we authentically counsel our clients on how to create a meaningful employee experience if we don’t have one ourselves?

Meaningful Employee Recognition Programs That Don’t Cost a Thing

To combat my end-of-ski-season blues, I’ve been dreaming about a pair of expensive, tricked-out skis. They’ll help me float through any snow conditions, backwards or forwards, and are magenta, a huge selling point for me. So, should I spend more than a month’s rent on them? The jury’s still out. But when it comes to recognizing your people, do you...

All Hands In

Does the thought of an all-hands meeting make you cringe? If you said “yes”, you’re certainly not alone. Last week, we held a brainstorming session to revisit all-hands meetings. Since I personally enjoy our weekly team meetings, I’ve wondered why my friends who work at other companies lean the other way. We started by considering these three items: 1) what...

Deciding on Opinions

Do other people’s opinions really matter? This question has come up every so often throughout my entire working life. At work, I’m a person who cares about what other people think. That quality has served me well in my career, but has also provided me with crippling stress and a need to analyze...

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...

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. ...
