Continental named one of 'Best Places to Work'
Continental Tire the Americas LLC (CTA) is one of just 10 large businesses to be recognized as a finalist in the "Best Places to Work" Award compiled by the “Charlotte Business Journal.”
The award recognizes companies with benefits, policies and practices that are among the area's best. The annual evaluation of the work environment is based on employee surveys which are conducted by a third party.
CTA has almost 400 employees in the Charlotte, N.C., area headquarters who were able to participate in this survey. The newspaper has sponsored this workplace award since 2006.
"Our employees are the heart of our business," says Matthias Schoenberg, chief executive officer, CTA. "Their feedback resulted in CTA being named a finalist for this prestigious award, and that makes this recognition very special.
"Continental Tire the Americas has enjoyed business growth in the past two years, despite the poor economy, and our employees deserve the credit for this success," Schoenberg says. "And we've worked hard to create for them a work environment that values their contributions and provides them with outstanding careers."
