We have four pillars here at Continental Office that symbolize what we stand for as a company. They are associate experience, client experience, one team, and community and environment. These four pillars together tell our story. Allow me to explain.
Now more than ever, it’s clear that associate attraction and retention is critical to your success as a company. Providing a variety of spaces to accomplish different tasks creates a positive and productive associate experience. This concept is known as The Living Office and it’s gaining traction as the most efficient office environment today. Whether you’re selling furniture, technology, or insurance, it’s important that your employees feel appreciated and have choices in the workplace. If you’re wondering what your employees need, just ask them.
Just as you need to attract and retain a talented team, you need to form lasting relationships with your clients to have a successful business. Creating an office environment that clients want to visit is a great place to start. Your office is a work of art. It’s the careful space planning and design, thoughtful extras, and unique offerings that can really set you apart and make your company a thought leader in your industry.
Does your company have multiple locations like ours does? If so, does everyone feel like they are a part of one, unified team? All of your locations should have a similar feel and culture, and your spaces should be cohesive and consistent. But “One Team” goes beyond our associates. We look for opportunities to team up with our clients, networks, and business partners to create win-win scenarios.
Community and Environment
Giving back to the communities in which we work is a big part of who we are. Our Continental Cares initiative has allowed us to help those in need and strive for a better world in which to live. We provide opportunities for our associates to get involved in giving back and making an impact in our cities!
