Social Responsibility

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Our top priority at MTS is our people. We pride ourselves on having one of the best benefit packages in the industry, offering a full line of health care benefits with no contribution required from our employees. We also have a very competitive 401(k) retirement savings plan.  We promote from within, and encourage our employees to seek further knowledge and skill in their fields with a generous education assistance program.

The Gainsharing program at MTS is our unique way of rewarding our employees for a job well done. Based on productivity, not profits, Gainsharing bonuses are earned when established productivity standards are exceeded and quality conforming products are shipped in a timely manner. Gainsharing also encompasses employee safety and attendance.

MTS Seating also respects the basic human rights of our employees and we operate our facilities under the fair labor practices set forth by the International Labour Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.  Furthermore, MTS follows guidelines established by the following organizations: U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division Right to Work, State of Michigan Right to Know Law, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration E-Verify System and the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division Fair Labor Standards Act. 

We extend our care for people into the surrounding community as well. MTS partners with the United Way for an annual contribution drive, with the company matching fifty cents on the dollar for every donation made by an employee. We also contribute to our local YMCA and the Bedford Goodfellows Toy and Food Drive during the holidays. MTS also funds a college scholarship through the local high school.

In closing, protecting and sustaining life on our planet is an essential vision shared by all MTS employees and encompasses every aspect of our business. Our partnership with Mother Earth is not just a fad; it’s a commitment to our customers, to our environment, and to our future.  For more information on SynerGreen® and other sustainability efforts at MTS, click here.
