AUBURN HILLS, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Continental Automotive, a leading technology company, today announced it has been named one of Newsweek’s America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity in 2024. This is the first time the company has been acknowledged for this honor.

The study, conducted by data research firm Plant-A Insights, independently interviewed more than 220,000 employees in the United States and collected over 1.5 million comprehensive company reviews. The study is one of America’s largest independent workplace studies.

To ensure this commitment progresses, the company has identified three pillars that drive its efforts — creating an inclusive culture, ensuring a diverse workforce and investing in communities. Additionally, Continental has significantly grown its ERGs internally.
