Did you hear Uncubed’s news? + A webinar with secrets + Mutiny at work + McMindfullness

April 18, 2019 By Tarek Pertew

And the correct link from last week's Vulture article.

This week in HR…

“Don’t pretend you’re not impressed!”: Uncubed has some really exciting news. The legendary go-to website for media professionals, Mediabistro, has officially joined the Uncubed family. You can learn more about why we acquired Mediabistro here (our press release) or here (a personal note from our COO).

For me, it’s the perfect fit. Mediabistro’s audience of marketers, content creators, social media experts, freelancers, etc. rounds out Uncubed’s audience of engineers, product managers, digital marketers and biz dev professionals.

Additionally, Mediabistro has held a very warm place in the hearts of New Yorkers for over 20 years. If you want a gig in media, you go to Mediabistro. We’re excited to get our hands dirty. Stay tuned…

A webinar for marketers HR Professionals: On April 30th, Uncubed is partnering with Yello on a webinar about 5 things your marketing team isn’t sharing that can improve your employer brand.

Must watch: This Apple at Work commercial is so, so good. Not really an employer branding video, but it’s about work and it’s a joy to watch. Plus the lead actress is great friends with our head of content.

Fake it till you make it: My brother shared a great article with me from the Guardian on the future of mindfulness now that capitalism has captured it. If you’re looking for peace of mind, meditate daily, use mindfulness apps or are pursuing a spiritual journey of any kind, it’s probably an interesting read.

Who’s in charge here, anyway? In case you missed it, over 50% of the employees at HQ made a failed attempt to overthrow the CEO. It’s one of those rare moments where Hollywood seems to make its way into real life. Read more here.

DYK: Did you know that until May 21st, we honor a 100% refund on tickets to HR Uncubed if you can no longer make it. This event is going to sell out, so if you are holding back for scheduling reasons, hold back no more! Plus, prices jump in 2 weeks.

Next week I’ll be back with some more fun.

Oh, and if Mediabistro has played a positive role in your life, let us know!
