With over 700 employees placed at 21 different agencies and several corporate locations, it can be hard to create a strong sense of community among our team at MIL. Although different teams may take part in agency and local get-togethers, it is important to us that we feel like one big unit. In 2016, we worked hard to come up with a solution that brings many of us together, which resulted in the purchase of a shared corporate suite at the Capital One Arena (formerly Verizon Center) in Washington, D.C.
Multiple times a month, employees from across the company are offered the chance to win tickets (which includes one for a guest) to events at the Capital One Arena. This opportunity allows our well-deserving team members to not only enjoy an evening of entertainment, but a chance to mingle with other employees who they may never meet otherwise. In just the past year, we have watched the Washington Capitals fight for the Stanley Cup, saw professional wrestlers duke it out at WWE, watched legendary rockers AC/DC perform, saw Kanye West be, well, Kanye, and allowed our kids to enjoy Disney on Ice and the Circus. These are just a handful of the events our employees have enjoyed throughout the year, and it has been a great opportunity to have a little fun while making some connections.
MIL has also used our corporate suite as an opportunity to connect with community members. Through our MIL CARES program, we have treated organizations supporting underserved youth, such as Mentors Inc. and Metroball Youth Outreach.
Building a cohesive team can be a challenge when we are so spread out, but it is MIL’s hope that we can create positive experiences by offering a place for our employees to cross paths and create memories. Check out the gallery below to see everyone having a good time!
