Group purchasing organization Provista had been working to highlight its food related services and contracts to its members in the hospitality industry. So when our client contact approached us with an idea to take a B2C approach to a B2B video series, we quickly sprang into action.
Provista hired Chef Henry Hill to serve as on-screen talent and the MSPC team did the rest. MSPC handled: pre-production (including identifying a location for the shoot), scripting and storyboarding; production, including the in-person, two-day shoot in Minneapolis; and post-production services, including a social cut to accompany each of the five videos in the series.

3M Talent Acquisition Videos
Launching an employer brand within a large corporation is no easy feat, which is why 3M challenged MSPC to develop branding and marketing to inspire, attract and recruit top talent globally.
MSPC’s employment branding for 3M introduced a niche technical center to potential candidates through foundational brand messaging and a series of videos featuring real 3Mers. We leaned into the power of lived experiences at multiple job levels, sharing unscripted, authentic viewpoints to emphasize the sense of purpose 3Mers feel at work. For filming, we visited employees in their remote and on-site workspaces, including a new international office. We also captured footage of employees’ personal hobbies to show the breadth of 3Mers’ personalities and highlight flexibility through the company’s Work Your Way policy. Our videos incorporated nine employee perspectives on a variety of topics including technical leadership, impact, purpose, benefits and collaboration.
- Stakeholder interviews
- Brand Anthem statement and general messaging
- Brand Anthem video and supporting recruitment videos
- Style guide for photography, brand colors, voice and tone
- Landing page copy

“I am super impressed! It flows and covers so many of the very important topics that we need.”

3M Work Your Way
When 3M rolled out a new flexible working philosophy, Work Your Way, the Employee Communications team called upon MSPC to create multichannel assets to inform, educate and engage current and future employees.
For many, the pandemic forever changed how we work and launched myriad conversations about the future of work. As 3Mers and MSPCers experienced remote and hybrid work for the first time, we dug into our natural curiosities to explore the psychology behind where, when and how 3Mers like to work. Our written and video content featured employee success stories and perspectives. Designed how-to guides and infographics offered tips and advice, with topics ranging from virtual tools and ways to reduce meetings, to finding your optimal workspace when on-site.

U.S. Bank Brand Publishing
For years MSPC has created and produced content for U.S. Bank, from long-form articles and infographics to persona-driven videos and interactive digital content. Our mindset when considering these audiences—whether it be their personal or small business banking clients—is that finance doesn’t have to be dry. In fact, it’s that personal element of finance that we know consumers connect with most.
Our content strategy and creation reframed financial information to connect with emotional and human elements. The psychology of personal finance is a cornerstone of our content planning, and with data analysis and informed SEO insights, what results is engaging content that readers feel a connection to.
