In honor of World Mental Health Day on October 10th, Digital Remedy celebrated last week with our Second Annual Mental Health Week. Full of activities, events, and programs, Mental Health Week is designed to encourage Remediers to learn more about the ways in which you can improve and maintain your mental health in the workplace. 

This year, we took each day to focus on a different aspect of mental health, aiming to provide a well-rounded experience and a healthy and happy environment for all of our employees across our U.S. offices. Team members received daily schedules of activities, along with facts and additional resources in order to debunk any myths, and destigmatize the conversation surrounding mental health.

Monday: Health Space

Monday’s focus was all about creating a healthy and happy workspace by cleaning up and beautifying your space. After employees sanitized their desks and did a little “fall cleaning,” they had the opportunity to print out pictures, plant a succulent, or decorate their desks in a way that would make them most comfortable and happy throughout the day. 

Tuesday: Healthy Spirit

Day 2 focused on boosting creativity and decompressing. Adult coloring books were available in the office to give people a moment to rest and let their creativity loose. Completed coloring pages were then displayed in the office for all to admire. The day was wrapped up with a little arts-and-crafts project that allowed everyone to customize an aromatherapy clay stress-ball for themselves. 

Wednesday: Healthy Mind

Wednesday was all about stretching out those mental muscles. Puzzles were available in every office as teams worked together to complete them. We are proud to say, mission accomplished! After work, all three U.S. offices came together for some friendly competition over a live-streamed trivia night. 

Thursday: Healthy Heart

Day 4 started with some nutritious (and delicious!) smoothies and then the NYC office was then visited our lovable and huggable therapy dog friends from New York Therapy Animals, while our Denver team enjoyed an opportunity to bring their dogs to work. Meanwhile, NOLA used the evening to learn more about the positive heart benefits of red wine with a customized wine tasting. 

Friday: Healthy Body

To round up our week, flu shots were administered in the NYC office, while NOLA and Denver prepped for the season with some emergency flu kits with all the essentials. Sunshine Notes that team members wrote to acknowledge their gratitude and appreciation for each other were distributed. Finally, to send people off for the weekend feeling zen and balanced, after-work yoga and meditation classes were available. 

With the wrap of our Second Annual Mental Health Week, we were thrilled to see team members from each and every Digital Remedy office get involved, and we are excited to start implementing some of these activities into our daily offerings based on some of the feedback we have received. As we continue through the final quarter of 2019 and into the new year ahead, the success of Mental Health Week has motivated Digital Remedy to increase our focus on mental health, and continue to foster a healthy and balanced workplace for our employees.

Buying Power and Quality

Let’s be honest. Your ad ops are limited by your access to only a handful of channels and DSPs. You want more reach and better prices, but don’t want to sacrifice quality in order to achieve those goals. Digital Remedy has access to a vast multitude of channels based on relationships we’ve cultivated over nearly 20 years in business. That means we get the best prices, have personal relationships, and don’t get sent to voicemail when we call.

It also means that we can execute omni-channel ad ops for better prices than an internal team, while ensuring the quality is up to industry standards. On top of access to all sorts of specific audiences we’re able to to leverage first- and third-party data across all your campaigns and pivot across platforms based on results. Any campaign, any budget, any platform, any audience. Digital Remedy backed by AdReady is restriction free ad ops….and what could be better than that?

Resources, Time, and Overhead

When was the last time you enjoyed balancing budgets, reading resumes, dealing with aggressive sales teams, or wasting years of time for small gains in performance. By partnering with Digital Remedy you get the full support of $30m in OPEX including marketing teams, sales teams, and a dedicated 24/7 ad operations team. No hiring new employees for media optimization, business development, or account management. No months of training and on-boarding. No long meetings crafting sales materials. Just your team focused on making deals, and our teams and tech focused on supporting and executing those deals in a tech-enabled, digital ecosystem designed to get the most out of any KPI.

Reporting and Support

How nice would it be to have all of your data and insights in one location. We don’t mean an excel sheet sent out once a week with complicated charts, or an XML file with pages and pages and pages of tables (what is this, 2003?). We mean a fully customizable dashboard reporting in real time, or as real time as possible. You get to decide the how, what, and when of the reporting you’re seeing. And that’s ALL of the how, what, and when’s. If you want to see breakouts of all of the individual campaigns in your system, done. If you want broad scope comparisons of all of the campaigns in the last year, done. If you want to see CTR’s for specific audiences and compare them to CPM for your best performing advertiser but limit the scope to campaigns greater than 30k, done. All of this is at your fingertips with the AdReady Dashboard, all in one place.
