good culture: start with the employee manual

Agency Traction has what they call a "Burning Man Policy." They encourage their employees to take in events (like Burning Man) that can inspire or enhance their creative development. From their employee manual:

Traction will prioritize requests for time-off—even if people have no vacation time left—to attend events that inspire or enhance professional and/or creative development such as Burning Man or SxSW.

Because they know that grand life experience will translate to better work, better employees, and happier clients. And they've got an agency that's ten years old, where less than ten people have ever chosen to leave. This is how you inspire.
