On June 6th, the day after our company Challenge Meetings, Continental's Marketing Team took the trip up to Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers, for the 2018 Experience Inbound held by national leaders in the marketing field.
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).
Please join us in congratulating Eric Gumm on his promotion to Development Director!
For the sixth consecutive year, Continental Properties Company Inc. was named a Top Workplace by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Selection for this honor is determined through the results of an anonymous survey of our entire Continental Team.
At Continental, the first day of spring is marked by a yellow rose, a tradition started by Rich Bell, one of Continental's co-founders. Each year, Rich would deliver a long-stemmed yellow rose to the many ladies in the community who helped his business life go smoothly. Roses were given to all the ladies in Continental's office, the county courthouse, city hall, title companies, realtors, and on occasion, competing businesses. The list grew each year, brightening each person's day.
Please help us congratulate Elizabeth (Liz) Moritz on her promotion to Controller for Continental Properties!
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.
Last Friday, for the fifth consecutive year, Continental Properties Company Inc. was named a Top Workplace by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Selection for this honor is determined through the results of an anonymous survey of our entire Continental Team. The dedicated and talented professionals of Continental Properties make our company a great organization, so it is appropriate that their work experiences determine our recognition as a Top Workplace.
