Building a Supportive Work Environment

MC has been improving its internal systems so that employees can better balance child care, family care, and other personal responsibilities with their careers. To create a comfortable and supportive atmosphere that understands and encourages the active use of these systems and policies, MC will further focus on building a corporate culture that embraces diverse work styles.

Child Care Support

MC understands the vital role that businesses play in providing support to raise future generations.
