If you live and work in Arizona, you know the business sector has not stopped growing. In fact, a new report from ComercialSearch finds that Phoenix ranked second nationally for industrial development growth in 2022.

All these new-to-Arizona companies have a strategy and outcomes they want to achieve, and all of them will build a culture they believe will help them achieve both. Culture is a competitive advantage, which is why people apply in droves to companies that can build and sustain a great culture. Remember the keyword “sustain”, we will come back to that. So, what does this have to do with MSS Business Transformation Advisory (MSSBTA)?

Arizona’s business growth has given MSSBTA more opportunities and allowed them to grow simultaneously. However, their culture has stayed intact. And as the awards stack up, they can easily say it has become even better. So how do they do it?

MSSBTA has been transforming businesses since 1986. In 2009, MSSBTA adapted their long-term strategy into being a “Game Changer” in the eyes of their customers, prospects, and current and future employees.

But as noted, it can't be all about strategy, can it? As a legendary management consultant and writer Peter Drucker famously said, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." Most businesses know this is the case even if they don't want to admit it. No matter how great a business strategy seems, it will fail without a culture that encourages and allows people to execute it. So, what does MSSBTA do differently?

MSSBTA's strategy might have changed since 1986, but one thing that hasn't changed is its focus. They have created the perfect mix of concentration on the mission, values, and people, which creates their sustainable culture. Ah, there it is that word "sustain".

MSSBTA understands the mission does not exist and values do not matter without the right people. People of MSSBTA are the competitive differentiation. Recruiting, hiring, and staff development are the foundations of creating the right culture.

Hiring criteria focus on candidates who are aligned with their Core Values, Mission, and Vision, understand and value the MSSBTA Employee Value Proposition, and have long-term potential to contribute to achieving the company’s business strategy.

Training and development are deliberate and ongoing once the right people are in place. Opportunities are provided to ensure skills align with customer needs, the company’s portfolio of current and future offerings, and the individual's personal and professional growth. They allow everyone to find and grow their purpose and passions to help other companies improve and transform.

On top of their people, values, and mission-focused attributes, MSSBTA cares about its employees and their well-being. They continuously track everyone's bandwidth and consistently check in. And, of course, there are the system rewards as well, good pay, benefits, and generous time off. It is no surprise that MSSBTA has sustained its place as one of the Top Companies to Work for in Arizona, year after year.

MSS Business Transformation Advisory has successfully navigated the rapid growth of Arizona's business sector while maintaining and even improving their company culture.

By focusing on their mission, values, and people, MSSBTA has created a sustainable culture that sets them apart from their competitors.
