Employees of MC Residential Communities point to many unique benefits as part of why they were selected by Arizona Business Magazine and BestCompaniesAZ as a Most Admired Company of 2016. Culturally, the company is implementing programs to help their employees be happier, not just at work but in their lives, and thus more successful.
This past year, the company studied the book The Happiness Advantage to get internal leaders to think about how to create a culture of happiness, both professionally and personally. Their corporate office feeds employees healthy foods in a fun 1950s diner-themed room and the MC Game Room encourages employees to relax and connect playing vintage video games in the arcade. An office gym encourages healthier living and a focus on mind and body. Their corporate office’s “Think Tank” inspires brainstorming in a stimulating setting.
Congratulations to MC Residential Communities and Lesley Brice for their winning approach to taking care of their employees as well as their residents.
