“At Matsuura, we believe that community involvement has the power to bring positive, measurable change to both the communities in which you operate, and to your business. Our community involvement programs are instrumental and drive a more productive, engaged workforce,” said Brad Baker, Vice President of Finance & Administration.
A recent study from Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship’s Community Involvement explored how companies are investing in communities and how these efforts connect to their business. The Center has conducted this survey 12 times since 1995 and, during this time, has seen how the role of community involvement has evolved to become an incredibly important strategic component of business.
“Matsuura USA is now, more than ever, committed to making our community involvement initiatives as strategic as they are impactful,” Baker added.
Brock Smiley, Matsuura’s Spindle Manager & Parts Coordinator, coaches and plays on a team in the local St. Paul Softball League sponsored by Matsuura. Nathan Faricy, in Matsuura’s Parts Support, also plays for the team.
“Last night’s games were quite exciting. Brock hit a three run “walk-off” homerun to win their first game, then the team followed it with another win in the second game,” Baker continued.
“Sponsoring our employees’ passions is also an excellent opportunity for Matsuura to build relationships within the local community, boost our company’s visibility and brand awareness. Additionally, we can attract new talent in this tightening labor market,” Baker added.
