An essential element of Continental’s culture is our commitment to continuous improvement. Continuous improvement in how we accomplish our goals, the projects that we develop and operate and in maintaining a workplace that is a magnet for the best and brightest. We realize ingenuity on small and large scales by fostering an environment where new perspectives and creativity are valued and flow freely from our team members diverse experiences and interests.
Since 2012, Continental’s recruiting volume has more than doubled. In 2016, we are on pace to hire 144 new team members, between the home office and the Springs. As the company and our Springs portfolio continues to grow, the need for a position dedicated to providing our hiring managers with the resources and support necessary to effectively and efficiently fill open positions has become apparent. So without further ado, I am pleased to announce the promotion of Nikki Rozek to the newly created position of Talent Acquisition Specialist.
