Surf, Turf and Murph: Murphy Research's Annual Summer Party

Last week the Murphy crew took a break from emailing our sample providers to sample some guacamole at our annual Summer Beach party!

We enjoyed a great Mexican-food feast and then indulged on s'mores and an array of other sweet treats.

However, rather than being introduced to an inflexible process and glaring fluorescent lights, I was met with a colorful environment, and equally colorful individuals who all shared the same vision for success. It was immediately apparent to me that Murphy Research is a company that breaks away from the norm, and is never satisfied with itself. This is a company that strives to become the best that it can be, and gives its employees the means to do so.

Murphy Research Expands to Minneapolis

Whenever I tell anyone I've recently moved from California to Minnesota, they typically respond with a resounding "WHY?" followed by, "Seriously, you moved to Minnesota?" And with a big smile on my face I reply, "Yes I did and I love it!" Minnesota is home to me. I'm originally from this beautiful winter wonderland and I have always loved it.
