With Manager Participation, you can partner with "the business" to complete your policy compliance work and mitigate risk. Help ensure employee compliance and help managers help themselves!

  • Managers can be CCed on Automated Reminder emails

  • Managers can be used as a filter in the documentation center to view documentation for their staff

  • Managers can access and print documentation for their staff

  • Customers on a pro subscription plan can turn on a Manager Digest email, which is a report emailed weekly to managers, containing a list of their staff members who have yet to sign their acknowledgement¬†

To enable Manager Participation, use our BambooHR employee sync integration or include employees' managers on your employee list sync file. Manager Participation features only appear if you tell Blissbook who your managers are.

CC Managers on Automated Reminder Emails

When setting up your CC options, you'll see a checkbox for the recipient's manager(s). Click it and managers will be emailed a copy of the reminder.

Filter Documentation by Manager

Want to see if a particular manager's staff has signed their acknowledgements? Just type a manager's name into the filter box in your documentation center and choose the manager or press enter once he or she is found. Managers appear with a person-wearing-a-tie icon.

Manager Access to Documentation

Everyone at every level of your organization is a little bit responsible for risk mitigation. It's not just on you! With Manager Participation, your managers can view and print documentation for their staff. They get their own view of the documentation center that only shows their staff:

Anything "edit" related is hidden. Managers cannot send reminders, start new signature rounds, or otherwise edit anything about your handbook or documentation.

Managers can access this view by clicking the "Your Staff" option from within the MENU of their published handbook:

There are no popups or notifications for managers so you'll need to let them know about this button if you'd like them to use it.

Manager Access to Staff Members' Handbooks

From the documentation center, managers can click a staff member's row, then look for the section at the top of the details panel entitled WHAT {PERSON} SEES:

The link here will open that person's handbook, even if it's different from the document that the manager has access to.

More to Come!

If you have any suggestions for how we can use manager hierarchy to improve the employee handbook experience, please let us know!
