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.
As Continental grows, both numerically and geographically, it is becoming increasingly important for our company’s leadership to receive real-time feedback from employees throughout the entire organization. To achieve this we are implementing an innovative employee feedback tool – Loop. Powered by Workplace Dynamics, LLC, Loop is a system developed to facilitate and open the lines of communication between employees and the organization’s leadership – getting the right feedback to the right people at the right time.
