The 2018 Leadership Summit and all-employee State of the Journey Town Hall were exciting events that set the stage for the company to make great strides in the year ahead. The entire team is pushing forward toward excellence together.
Special guest and town hall speaker, Admiral Eric Olson, shared his wisdom about the best ways to build small teams that are capable of changing the world. This speaks to the heart of MGT’s purpose – to help the public professional do his job more efficiently so the community benefits.
MGT Recess With A Purpose
The MGT Team Gives Back
MGT’s purpose, or as we reference in our Journey of Meaning, is “to power the work of the public professional to advance the lives of the citizens they serve.” It is a purpose with social responsibility at its core.
To live our purpose in an authentic way, we as a company must put social responsibility at the core of our culture and we’ve made a commitment to do so.
During the 2017 Summit in Chicago, the Executive Vice President of Finance and Accounting, Louise Lopez, made a great suggestion that our next team building program could also benefit the local community. We held a bike-a-thon, and it was a huge success. Our teams donated the bicycles to local children in need.
That program inspired us to make a commitment to include service projects in all our major meetings, so we’re not the only ones to benefit from these events. This year, we spent our “recess” between meetings filling school back packs and had a lot of fun. Six groups competed in team-building contests to earn school supplies for donation to local school children who might otherwise be unable to afford them. The backpacks went to the Collaboratory Preparatory Academy – a tuition-free, non-profit charter school located on a 160-acre, nature-filled campus in Tampa, Florida.
MGT is proud to support the mission of this dedicated and conscientious educational institution.
