Last week Brad Dodge, CEO of Dodge Communications, posted a blog looking back at “the best and worst in the exhibit hall
” at HIMSS13.
Imagine our surprise at “winning” the Most Unfortunate Booth Attire Award, with Dodge saying: “You can be certain that if you want your male staffers to have a unique look that stands out in the crowd, force them to wear pink pants, like they’ve done at Voalte.”
We love the part about standing out in a crowd. After all, Voalte is the only company to provide a fully integrated and dependable clinical communications system that healthcare professionals want, enjoy and effectively use. Our solutions – and our company brand – are a bold, innovative, contemporary take on the old ways of doing business.
And our trademark pink scrubs aren’t simply handed out to every new Voalte employee … they must be earned! Each department has a unique way of awarding pink pants to deserving staff.
GiGi Gray, our User Experience Manager, was training nurses at Texas Children’s Hospital
, with only a couple pairs of black scrubs for a week’s worth of work. After too many evenings of rinsing them out in the hotel sink, she started a campaign. Oscar Callejas, Chief Experience Officer, soon received hundreds of feedback messages from Texas Children’s nurses, all demanding that GiGi be awarded her pink pants.
Voalte Care Specialist Craig Gallot earned his in a similar way when the nurses at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
bombarded our Services team with messages vouching for Craig’s pink pants-worthiness.
Our Sales team earns their colors when they close their first contract. Project Managers are recognized when their first hospital goes live with the Voalte solution. It’s a mystery how our Engineers earn their pinks, but rumors circulate about an initiation ritual at a secret midnight ceremony.
However you come by them, our pink pants are just one way to symbolize that the old ways of working simply aren’t working anymore. So we’re wondering: Is Brad Dodge truly perturbed by pink, or actually green with envy?
Send us your size, Brad! We’d be happy to mail you a pair of Voalte scrubs, provided you agree to wear them to a business meeting (and we’ll need photos as proof). We guarantee you will stand out from the crowd.
