Salo completes another CFO search for a $40 million Private Equity owned international corporation based in the Twin Cities.

Salo’s unique office rituals are featured in the Wall Street Journal.
On June 3, 2013 Salo and its affiliate brands Oberon and NumberWorks, will unveil a new branding direction for the organization. The brand will unify the companies under a common banner in order to provide clients and employees alike with greater clarity in association, purpose, organization and service lines.
At many companies, it’s hard for employees to get any exercise. Not so at Salo. After participating in a small Mayo Clinic study that looked at the health effects of using treadmill desks and having standing meetings, the employees, who rotated usage of treadmill desks, all lost weight–and productivity and revenues at the firm reached a peak.
Salo’s initiative to become the first Blue Zones® Certified Workplace piqued the curiosity of FOX 9 TV. Reporter M.A. Rosko spends time onsite at Salo offices in downtown Minneapolis and learns how little changes in environment can add up to a healthier life.
So far my Blue Zones journey has resulted in no life-altering revelations or “A-ha!” moments. I guess that means I’m doing it right. Nevertheless I can’t help feeling a little unaccomplished. How am I to discipline myself to focus on a goal that I will never know was achieved? As a goal-driven person, I’m realizing the need to redefine success in the Blue Zones program.

Since we’ve embarked on the Blue Zones initiative at Salo, my attitude and habits toward healthy eating have changed a bit. As my wife, daughter and co-workers are all consciously making healthy choices, I am more likely to do the same.
