What is the MVP Program?

When applying or re-applying for the annual award, companies must provide documentation that shows their commitment to excellence in the following key areas:

Industry Relations – working for the good of the industry

Customer Relations – demonstrating ethical and superior business practices

Peer-to-Peer Networking – providing innovative solutions by learning from the best in the industry and building a reputation as innovative thinkers

Training – well trained employees are an investment in success

Best Practices –experience is often the best teacher and MHEDA provides many avenues to benchmark and compare with the best in the business.
