At MPI we believe that our employees are our greatest asset!
We understand that people are looking for more than just a job – they are looking for meaningful work, great benefits, and a great working environment.
We offer health, dental and vision insurance benefits, a 401K plan with company match, paid vacation, paid personal time and paid holidays. Every employee is treated to the day off for their birthday!
We have several company-wide events throughout the year to help our employees have some fun time together. Some of these events have been…
- Employee Appreciation Day
In the past employees have been treated to bagels & donuts, lunch, prize drawings, t-shirts, and special goodies.
- March Madness
We celebrate March Madness with a tailgate pot-luck luncheon while we watch the first game of the series and employees can participate in a bracket contest.
- Cinco de Mayo
We celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a Mexican themed luncheon and several piñatas. Our employees enjoy taking turns trying to break them open and watching their friends do the same!
- Company Picnic
We have a company picnic in the summer. We provide food and entertainment for the whole family. It is a great time to relax with friends and make new ones.
- Fall Tailgate Party
We celebrate the rivalry of Michigan State vs. University of Michigan football with a tailgate luncheon of fresh grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and a craziest fan contest. Employees are encouraged to wear ALL of their fan gear to win the Craziest Fan revolving trophy, a prize and bragging rights. During this time we also have a chili cook-off contest and a pumpkin toss contest. The winners of these competitions receive prizes, a revolving trophy, and bragging rights! These events provide a lot of fun for all!
We have a pie and ice cream social and provide each employee with a turkey. It is a fun way to show our employees how truly thankful we are for all that they do every day.
- Christmas Party
We provide a company Christmas party at an off-site location featuring a buffet dinner. Spouses are welcome and encouraged to attend.
At MPI we believe that recognizing the individual contributions of our employees is very important! Without their efforts to go above and beyond we could not be successful. Each month one employee is awarded the title of Employee of the Month based on peer and management nominations. The winner receives a cash prize, has their photo on display on our digital news board, and gets to park in the designated Employee of the Month parking spot that is in prime location near the employee entrance.
We also believe that it is important to recognize employment anniversaries. We know that as our employees stay with us, they are a vast source of knowledge and expertise in their positions. We recognize each employee on their anniversary by giving them a card. All of the employee anniversaries for the month are proudly displayed on our digital news board for all to see.
Those employees achieving a 5 year milestone anniversary receive special recognition. They receive a letter from our company president and a catalog from which they can choose a gift to commemorate their milestone.
We reward our employees for going above and beyond by operating under the philosophy of The Game of Work. Players (employees) work with their coach (supervisor) to create a game-plan of goals to be achieved during the year. These goals are above and beyond the day-to-day duties outlined in the job description and each goal is given an agreed upon point value.
Points are earned continuously throughout the year and awarded at the end of each quarter. Players can redeem points for things like work from home days, vacation time, flex-time, a standard lunch break extended by 45 minutes with a gift certificate for lunch, and gift cards. Points can be redeemed each quarter or roll-over to be redeemed at the end of the year.
