Human Resources Outsourcing Firm, MBA, Named 2016 Best Place to Work
MBA Brings Home Top Honors Two Years in a Row

St. Petersburg, FL, May 12, 2016 –Modern Business Associates (MBA), one of the bay area’s most recognizable providers of customized payroll, tax, benefits, risk management and HR administrative solutions, was recently named a Best Place to Work in Tampa Bay in the Biggest Category, for the second consecutive year. It is the tenth year MBA has been recognized as a finalist.

MBA’s Best Place to Work award was based on results of an employee survey administered by Quantum Workplace, on behalf of the Tampa Bay Business Journal. The survey responses were rated on work environment, people practices and other matrices.

Sean McConnell, CEO, credits the company’s team members with creating such a positive, productive and fun environment. He said, “We encourage our team members to meet high expectations and in return, we invest a lot in letting them know they are appreciated.” McConnell continued, “Our team members’ spirit and enthusiasm extends to our clients; our clients often remark that they can hear our team members smiling through the phone.”

Happy hours, instant raffles for event tickets and gift cards, and active recognition and feedback programs are just a few perks MBA offers its team members. The MBA leadership team also recently served all team members a four-course meal at their desks complete with strolling violinists, to show their appreciation.

Christopher D. McDonald, president and COO, added, “We strive to support those organizations which mean something to our team members. For example, MBA sponsors in-office drives for CASA, The Humane Society and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. This year, we also placed bulk cookie orders from any team member who had a family member selling Girls Scout Cookies and our business managers are taking these cookies out into the community as they make in-person client visits.”
