Social Responsibility Programs
Management & Training Corporation (MTC) is committed to ensuring the highest standard of social responsibility at our corporate, facility, and project locations throughout the world. MTC has spent more than 30 years positively impacting the lives of disadvantaged populations by helping people learn to help themselves in socially responsible ways. MTC’s social responsibility initiatives foster a culture of caring about our employees, students, clients, the community, and the next generation.
MTC places a high priority on being a good neighbor in the communities where we operate. We have established expectations for volunteerism and we encourage our staff to be active in their local community. Projects and facility teams are encouraged to strive to become well-recognized resources for community service. In 2011, MTC staff completed more than 1,380,000 hours of community service and volunteer work collaborating with Habitat for Humanity and other community organizations.
MTC recognizes that reducing the environmental footprint of business and service operations is a daily responsibility. MTC encourages and rewards innovations and improvements throughout its operation and rewards programs and facilities for implementing better ways to be more environmentally responsible. Among other initiatives, MTC has implemented comprehensive recycling and installed energy-efficient lighting throughout its offices and facilities.
Health and Wellness
MTC understands the importance of, and is committed to promoting a healthy workforce and encouraging the health and well-being of students and other clients. MTC supports wellness initiatives at its facilities to combat obesity, tobacco use, and other lifestyle issues that can hinder wellness. MTC offers opportunities for employees to improve their fitness in a supportive environment and provides incentives for employees who set health and wellness goals.
Life Skills Support
Different populations, communities, and cultures may need specialized support to increase their own social responsibility in order to integrate with, or give back to the community. For example, in some communities Parenting/Fatherhood initiatives have been provided to support the important role a father plays in the lives of children. In others, life skills support may be required to increase likelihood of employability and integration of particularly isolated or marginal populations. MTC programs are approached holistically and seek to increase social responsibility at all levels.
