Doing the Good Work
At The Commons at Elk Grove, we embrace the Japanese concept of Yoi Shigoto, or “the good work,” by stepping in and stepping up to help our community wherever and however we can. We believe that positively impacting our team members, residents, families, and neighbors through selfless endeavors within our sphere of influence connects our spirits and creates a prosperous and enduring future for all.
On the corporate level, MBK sponsors leadership retreats that work to support nonprofit organizations such as Together We Rise, which seeks to transform the way children experience foster care. Individual MBK Senior Living communities have organized events to support the local Humane Society, cancer awareness, senior programs including Meals On Wheels, and many more causes dear to their hearts.
A Commitment to What’s Right
Beyond volunteering for nonprofits and engaging in community service, Yoi Shigoto means an overarching commitment to doing what’s right. At The Commons at Elk Grove, we are dedicated to doing right by our residents and their families, without a selfish desire for our own personal gain or company profit. Yoi Shigoto is ingrained in the culture of The Commons at Elk Grove, from our parent company, Mitsui & Co. down to everyday interactions in each of our communities. In practicing the concept of Yoi Shigoto, we believe that when a company does the right thing for its customers, profits fall into place.
