Being a Gold Sponsor at Tuesday night’s LinkedIn Live Raleigh couldn’t have been timed any better! Ryan Allis, CEO of iContact, spoke about nurturing a creative culture and it’s positive impact on employee health, morale, and retention. When ignored, these three factors can have a negative effect on a company’s bottom line … staying in business and thriving.

This past week our company participated in two other morale boosting events and all of us at Hands On Health are still talking about their impact today. Last week a talk by author Dan Heath and his book, Switch, reinforced some positive beliefs that Tammy and I hold about Hands On Health’s creative culture. On Monday, we launched our annual Celebrate Your Healing Hands event and the positive feedback from visiting massage therapists and employees left the air charged with hope and health.

If you are looking for ways to revitalize your company’s creative culture, why not consider one or two of the things these companies have done?:

  • iContact launched it’s dumpster dive campaign whereby their energy conservation committee ‘dove’ into the trash and separated out the recyclables. In the end, created a mountain of recycle-“ables”, a powerful visual that shows employees how much recycling impacts sustainability.
  • Hands On Health treated massage therapists to lunch and medical massage, medical massage cupping, and self massage instruction demonstrations.
  • RHO, inc treats its employees to Hands On Health’s Wellness In The Workplace program that included on-site chair massage and wellness classes.


Take care of your employees and your success will follow. Best of business for you all.
