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.

Wellness

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.

Participation results in medical premium discounts or monetary awards for employees not enrolled in our medical insurance program.
