ATLANTA – August 2, 2019 – Atlanta Inno announced today that Clean Hands – Safe Hands has been named to its “2019 Coolest Companies” list.
The publication described the list this way:
“For our Coolest Companies feature, we examined the company culture of dozens of startups nominated by our readers. We narrowed that list down to 10 startups we thought deserved the ‘cool’ crown. The top determining factors we saw between our 10 Coolest Companies were collaboration, flexibility, bonding and giving back.”
Clean Hands – Safe Hands’ award description reads:
“At Clean Hands – Safe Hands, the culture is more like a family than an office. The team typically eats lunch together every day, and tries to keep a positive, supportive and team-oriented environment. Founder and CEO Chris Hermann is described as a coach or mentor more than a boss. And the company makes an active effort to make sure everyone’s voice counts, whether it’s about interviewing new employees or voting on office snacks.
Team members have the opportunity to explore all aspects of the company operations, including finances. Clean Hands recently kicked a mentoring program where those who want the opportunity to learn new skills can do so. For example, the startup has allowed a developer to work on graphic design, a field engineer to learn how to do machining and an account manager to learn how to use visual analytics to better answer customer questions.
Inside their workspace, you’ll find a giant beanbag, indoor hammock, multiple Nerf guns for spontaneous battles, a well-stocked beer fridge supplied by the company and even dogs roaming the office. Beer and games start at 3:00 p.m. on Fridays, with the occasional ukulele solo performance. Employees can schedule regular one-on-one meals with the CEO. They also enjoy fully covered benefits, a flexible, make your own hours schedule (while maintaining collaborative core hours) and unlimited paid time off.”

About Clean Hands – Safe Hands
Clean Hands – Safe Hands (CHSH) helps reduce HAIs by inspiring a personal-best approach to hand hygiene. Headquartered in Atlanta, the company began through a research consortium of the CDC, Emory University, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Georgia Tech Research Institute. Knowing that the primary accepted method of direct observation is ineffectual in reducing HAIs, physicians and technologists worked together to develop an innovative solution to the real-world problem. The CHSH technology supports a unique, systematic process that drives behavioral change and delivers value to hospitals all along the journey to HAI reduction and prevention.
