Our Culture @ Michigan Virtual

Work that makes a difference

We believe in a culture of caring

A people-first culture that strives to make every employee feel valued

 When you join our team, you get to do work on a daily basis that makes a difference for students, educators, and families in the state of Michigan. It’s a privilege we take seriously.

Diversity is more than just a value to us

Having a people-first culture means being inclusive of diversity in all forms and honoring all employee voices.  For Michigan Virtual diversity is a critical component to innovation. As an equal-opportunity, affirmative-action employer, we value and encourage applications from women and minorities.

We strive for a healthy balance between work and life

The health, well-being, professional growth, and financial security of our employees matter deeply to us. Full-time employees receive the following benefits beginning their first day on the job:

When life happens, we have you covered
Work-life balance
Optional employee-paid benefits
Scholarship program
Meet the culture committee

Company culture plays a key role in job satisfaction and employee retention

That’s why we strive to cultivate a people-first culture where every team member feels welcome, heard, and valued. Once per month, our culture committee — a group of colleagues representing departments from across the organization — meet to review anonymous staff suggestions, foster a positive company culture, and create opportunities for staff to connect with one another.

Diversity, equity, & inclusion subcommitee

Having a people-first culture means being inclusive of diversity in all forms and honoring all employee voices. Our DE&I subcommittee meets regularly to ensure Michigan Virtual is an equitable and inviting place to work. View our diversity statement →

Wellness subcommittee

Wellness comes in many forms — physical, mental, social, and financial to name a few. Our wellness subcommittee meets often to brainstorm ways that Michigan Virtual can foster the health & well-being of employees by offering educational resources, staff challenges, training opportunities, fun events, and more.

Company-wide events

When the full staff gets together, we always have a good time. Every year, we host an array of company-wide events, often including an Annual Chili Cook-Off with guest judges, a holiday party, a pumpkin-carving contest, a company picnic, game nights, and more. We do our best to offer remote options for our colleagues who live outside of driving range so all can participate in these events alongside us.
