The lifestyle and culture publisher Bustle Digital Group, which houses titles including Bustle, Gawker and Nylon, told employees Friday morning that it plans to transition from its current part-time staffing model into a full-time staffing model, according to a document obtained by Adweek.

The shift will affect brands within its Lifestyle portfolio, including Bustle, Nylon, Elite Daily and TZR, as well as the parenting-focused Romper. The conversion will graduate “dozens” of part-time roles into full-time positions, while eliminating roughly 10 part-time positions.
