Earlier this week, Continental gathered for our Confab lunch event. Quarterly, team members from across the country gather in-person and virtually to hear transparent company news and perspectives that have an impact on Continental's performance and objectives.
Last week, Continental Properties held our annual Challenge Meetings at the Home Office. Challenge Meetings are a formal way for team members to meet with our senior leaders to share and discuss strengths, obstacles, ideas, and opportunities for improvement in an open and safe environment.
Continental Properties has several ongoing traditions that set our organization apart and help solidify our recognition as a Top Workplace USA. One of these traditions is the annual Challenge Meetings. At this meeting, Home Office team members meet with Continental’s senior leadership to discuss strengths and opportunities at Continental.
Continental has a tradition that sets us apart and helps solidify our spot on the Top Workplaces in Wisconsin. Each year, Continental's home office partakes in our Challenge Meetings. At this meeting, all non-director level employees meet with the Continental Officer group to have open conversations about what's working and not working at Continental. As this group meets, the Directors also meet with Jim Schloemer (CEO) and Dan Minahan (COO).
Tradition is defined as the "transmittal of elements of a culture from one generation to another...a coherent body of precedents influencing the present...a time-honored practice or set of such practices." After nearly 40 years, Continental has more than a few traditions. In mid-June, we participated in one of them, our annual Challenge Meetings.
