SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Break out the confetti!  MC Companies has been ranked as 9th in the nation by Multifamily Leadership and Best Companies Group (BCG) as part of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Multifamily.

On December 6, 2016 Lesley Brice, president of MC Companies, and Michelle Sinclair, director of operations, attended the Multifamily Leadership Summit in Scottsdale to receive the prestigious award. “Being ranked 9th in the nation is an incredible honor. We were up against companies from 42 states so to come out on top is both humbling and reaffirming that our culture and practices work,” says President Lesley Brice. “75% of our score came from employee surveys, without our employees this award would not have been possible. Our incredible team members and residents are the reason we are able to succeed in the industry.”

The rigorous assessment process, administered by the Best Companies Group, evaluated each company’s employee policies and procedures as well as responses from the company’s employees. The program is part of a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence throughout the Multifamily Apartment Industry and to attract new leaders to the industry.

As CEOs and executive teams create culture and innovation around the resident experience, employee engagement is seen as a key driver to meet multiple challenges. The 2017 Best Places to Work Multifamily program recognizes those companies that have established and consistently fosters outstanding workplace environments.

“Giving is at the heart of what we do here at MC,” says Lesley Brice. “From assisting our residents, to charity drives at our office, the importance of altruism is in everything we do. Winning this award is a reflection of the ways giving back to those within our own company has helped create engagement within our own organization.”
