Community Engagement

Through a variety of philanthropic initiatives, MSG staff makes a positive impact on society. Our passionate and inspired professionals foster an environment of collaboration and camaraderie through volunteerism, corporate giving campaigns, and educational outreach and mentoring programs. MSG encourages these social responsibilities and supports employee efforts that help strengthen communities and build a positive team atmosphere.

Diversity Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are fundamental to MSG's culture and core values, fostering an innovative, cooperative and accessibile work environment that supports varying skillsets and insights, and allows our team to successfully collaborate. MSG recognizes the benefit of diverse perspectives, work experience, life styles and cultures. We focus on the needs of our employees to ensure the right conditions are in place for each person to achieve his/her full potential. Inclusion is reflected in our culture, practices and relationships.

Catalytic Coaching

Catalytic Coaching is MSG’s performance evaluation tool that allows our supervisors to serve as Coaches to our employees focusing on the future rather than the past. Catalytic Coaching assists employees in growing their perceived strengths and developing areas for improvement. Employees draft a development plan aimed at improving contributions in their current job and increasing potential for other opportunities. Catalytic Coaching is all about bringing out the best in people at work.


MSG believes that our team should have a balance between family, work and a healthy lifestyle. MSGetsFit motivates our team to engage in Wellness related activities. Wellness is not something you do “to” people… it is becoming a partner “with” people to provide tools and information to assist in achieving good health and well-being. Participation results in medical premium discounts or monetary awards for employees not enrolled in our medical insurance program.

Why Work Here?

Talented and dedicated professionals combined with the comprehensive services they provide are the foundational culture of MSG. Opportunity, development and growth are encouraged and cultivated along with honesty, integrity and professionalism in our thoughts and actions. Achievement of success through working smarter, technical skill and creative spirit.
