Is Written Format Dead? PL;DR Hopes Not…: PL;DR 10/15

The 10/15 edition of the weekly PL;DR, featuring a look into the latest Netflix partnership and other industry news.

It’s been a rough couple of months, and we’re all starting to feel it. If you’ve been feeling lower on energy, or just generally disengaged the past few weeks, you’re not alone!

Here at the PL;DR, we’re all about injecting your workday with some positivity, and McKinsey recently shared some tactical advice for reshaping the employee experience to ensure positive engagement and improve business performance.

Hopefully this email can give you the boost of serotonin you need to end your week on a strong note!

The PL;DR is brought to you in partnership with xAmplify.
