How MFP is Fighting COVID-19
In light of the recent pandemic, we have seen companies, individuals, and entire cities step up to help fight the good fight. Whether it’s a drive by birthday party, free online workout courses from home, or entire medical staff singing cover ballads in their scrubs, the good natured spirit of humanity is impossible to suppress.
It’s no secret that happy employees produce better bottom lines for companies. By maintaining a positive, fun, and dependable company culture, businesses are able to thrive in the industry, and pass that mentality and positive results down to their customer base. At MFP, we are not only aware of this approach, but strive to enhance it every chance we get.
