Supportive Workplace Award Presented to Incredible Mo's
Supportive Workplace Award
Incredible Mo's in Grawn earned the recognition for providing employees with resources and assistance to address problems before they affect productivity. Incredible Mo’s is an entertainment center with bowling, an arcade, restaurant, and bar. Owner Chris Mohrhardt says he encourages his employees to have fun on the job and tries to provide them with a dependable place to work. Employees also give back to the community through a project at Mo’s that provides free birthday parties to children and families in need.
“We find that when they have a dependable workplace they’re happier, they’re more engaged, they want to stay here longer, and that gets passed down to the customer,” said Mohrhardt.
The other Supportive Workplace Award winners were Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa in Thompsonville and Plascon in Traverse City. The Poverty Reduction Initiative selected the winners from a group of businesses nominated by companies and individuals in the Grand Traverse region.
