HOLLYWOOD, FL (May 2, 2011) – The Continental Group’s (TCG) North Florida office, part of Florida’s largest property management company, was recently named one of the best places to work in the Tampa Bay region by St. Petersburg Times and online at www.tampabay.com. The prestigious annual award honors top workplaces based on the results of employee surveys.
“The Continental Group is honored to be included as one of the top places to work, especially because our employees served as the judging panel,” said Mark Stoops, TCG Regional President, North Florida. “We strive to make our work culture a creative, supportive, energetic and happy environment.”
Employees at TCG receive an extensive competitive employee benefits package, bonuses, recognition awards, and get to participate in corporate events hosted for them such as the company’s Fourth of July picnic. TCG, through its philanthropic arm, Continental Cares, is also committed to supporting charity initiatives selected by its staff members including Susan G. Koman, Metropolitan Ministries, Isaiah’s House and Habitat for Humanity.
The following anonymous quotes were sourced from the survey:

From the time that you start on your path until you reach your objective, the leadership team is here to guide you and encourage you on your path to success.”
“I have the flexibility I need to balance my work and personal life.”
“I feel genuinely appreciated at this organization”.
