An Insider's view of Inspira Financial

What are some social events your company does?

Our MTC culture is defined by our employees for our employees. The primary aspect of our culture that makes us unique is our ability to “Celebrate.” From charity events to social gatherings, we provide employees with multiple opportunities to learn more about one another, give back to others and expand our professional skills!

Rebecca

Manager, People Operations

What does your typical day look like?

I collaborate with internal business users to gather requirements for projects and enhancements. I develop these solutions using both no-code and code methodologies in Salesforce. It's rewarding knowing that we're making life easier for both our internal and external clients through streamlined, automated processes with a shorter turnaround time.

Alec

IT Business Developer/Analyst

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started out as a Sales & Marketing Coordinator at MTC in 2013. I’ve since been promoted twice and asked to lead our MTCulture Team. I test-drove my leadership skills early on by volunteering for opportunities to lead small meetings/projects, join internal and external committees, and organize events and workshops. I always welcome a challenge!

Lauren

AVP, Regional Director, Custody Services

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Throughout the transition to a virtual work environment, I have continued with a “virtual” open door policy. I give visibility into my workload and transparency about my availability through the use of MS Teams, email and open dialogue on current and upcoming projects.

Rachel

Accounting Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I started as an intern on the help desk team. I had many opportunities to learn and meet 1-on-1 with executives who provided mentoring and support for me to learn and grow. I’m now a full-time employee and my managers are very supportive in pushing me to advance my career, encouraging me to identify areas of the business I’d like to progress into.
