FORT MILL, S.C.—SC Biz News listed Continental Tire the Americas L.L.C. as one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The award, created by SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group, recognizes employers benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses, according to a Continental statement.
This is the fourth time Continental has received the honor.
"At Continental, we have a future work initiative, which focuses on the areas of diversity, leadership, learning and flexible work to enable transformation across our organization to prepare for the digitalization of our industry," Rick Ledsinger, Continental's vice president of human relations, said in a news release.
This year, Continental supported flexible working conditions for more than 18,000 employees in the U.S., at all levels of the organization, with a package that includes offers for telecommuting, part-time work, paid parental leave and extended sabbaticals.
Companies making the list of best places to work were evaluated in the areas of workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. Employees at the firms also were asked to complete surveys, offering feedback on their experiences working with the companies. The combination of scores from the evaluation and the employee survey determined which companies made the final list and their ranking on it.
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.
The ranked companies will be recognized at a reception and dinner Aug. 3, and the rankings will be published in the August issue of SCBIZ magazine.
