Baltimore-based Continental Realty Corporation (CRC) has earned the national 2022 “Top Workplaces USA Award,” based on confidential feedback from a team member survey administered by Energage, LLC, a Philadelphia-based research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.
This represents the second consecutive year in which the commercial real estate and investment company has been recognized with this type of national honor. CRC was also recently named a “Top Workplace” by The Baltimore Sun Media Group for the ninth consecutive year and was the highest-ranking real estate and property management firm in the mid-size employers category. CRC ranked in the 11th position among all local companies with 150 to 399 team members.
In a process that began last summer with selected companies across the country, Energage administered a 24-question employee survey that measured workplace issues such as alignment, coaching, connection, engagement, leadership, performance, benefits and training. Energage analyzed the data to identify 147 winners in the small, midsize and large categories.
CRC was also awarded several cultural badges for ranking in the top 25% of employers in its benchmarking group for employee appreciation, company direction, being a trusted leader, open-mindedness, having clued-in employees and supportive managers and operating with strong values.
CRC consistently organizes, executes and evaluates programming that emphasizes an open and engaging work culture, fosters meaningful engagement that makes a difference in the communities where the company operates, promotes team member health and wellbeing and empowers its team members. Key CRC missions are to encourage diversity and inclusion in its workplace and support wide-ranging local philanthropic activities.
Over the past year CRC has added 10 new properties to its national portfolio and entered three new markets, including Lubbock, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; and Troy, Michigan.
