CRC Honored by The Baltimore Sun Media Group as Top Workplace for Sixth Consecutive Year
For the sixth consecutive year, CRC has been honored as a Top Workplace in the Baltimore metropolitan area by The Baltimore Sun Media Group. With approximately 300 employees, the real estate development, management and investment company was honored in the medium-sized company category. The Top Workplaces lists are based entirely on the confidential results of an employee feedback survey administered by a third-party company that measures workplace culture based on Alignment, Execution, and Connection.
“Attracting and retaining top talent is among the most vital challenges that impacts every organization, so it is especially gratifying to see validation of our efforts based on these survey results,” stated Crystal Frey, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Continental Realty Corporation. “We consider it an extreme honor to be selected for the sixth consecutive year and we take immense pride in this accomplishment. Our management team understands the importance of establishing a working environment that rewards the contributions of our employees, values their opinions and provides continuing opportunities for professional advancement.”
CRC maintains an employee retention rate significantly higher than the industry average at approximately 80% or greater and, within the past year, celebrated nearly forty milestones with team members who have five years or more of service with the company. CRC placed 11th out of 25 mid-size organizations selected for the award, up from the 14th spot last year in an increasingly competitive field.
Continental Realty Corporation (CRC), headquartered in Baltimore and founded in 1960, is a full-service commercial real estate investment and management company. The privately-owned firm owns and manages a diversified portfolio of retail centers consisting of over 4 million square feet of space, as well as apartment communities featuring more than 10,000 apartment homes.
