For the second year in a row, Continental North America was ranked one of America’s Best Employers 2016 by Forbes magazine.

Continental has invested more than $1.5 billion in the United States since 2011 in the automotive and tire industry, and in February 2016 announced a $1.4 billion investment for a new commercial vehicle tire plant in Mississippi.

Continental employs approximately 17,000 people in the U.S. Pictured is the company’s NAFTA headquarters in Auburn Hills, Mich.

Forbes magazine’s list of top employers is generated from a national survey of 30,000 employees from companies throughout the country, and rates employers who continuously raise the bar on employee initiatives and strive to achieve corporate culture excellence. Each survey participant was asked to rank both his own employer as well as other employers in the same industry sector.
“We are extremely excited and proud to once again be named as one of America’s Best Employers by Forbes,” says Rick Ledsinger, vice president of human relations for Continental North America. “Attracting and retaining top talent has become more challenging in our business. As the tech-driven automotive industry continues to evolve, we must remain flexible within this changing landscape by offering unique programs and services that not only meet the needs of employees, but their families too.

“At Continental, our employees are our greatest asset. In our 2015 worldwide employee survey, the vast majority – 85% – of employees said they were proud to work for Continental. This result is around 10 percentage points higher than the previous survey carried out in 2011.

“Our employees are working on ideas and technologies that are shaping future mobility. They are the drivers of our business growth and long-term success. That is why we remain committed to advancing our talent development strategies, ensuring we are continuously creating impactful and engaging opportunities across the organization.

“Each year, we strive at becoming the employer of choice. Our innovative employee initiatives and dedication to creating an excellent work-life balance culture are among the many reasons we have again made it to the Forbes list this year. At the core for all of this are our values – trust, passion to win, freedom to act, and for one another. These four pillars are what guide us and contribute positively to our company’s culture.”

America’s Best Employers 2016 list will be published in the April 11 print issue of Forbes magazine.
