Local Car Rental Team Honored for Commitment
to Company’s Founding Values; Donating to Community Non-Profits
Enterprise Holdings, the largest car rental company in the world, is hiring 70 college-educated, career-oriented men and women in Atlanta through its management program.
Enterprise Holdings, through its regional subsidiaries, operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands. These new full-time employees are being hired into the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Management Training (MT) program in the Atlanta region, which recently was recognized with a Founding Values Award for consistently carrying out the values of company founder, Jack Taylor.
The Jack Taylor Founding Values Award honors regional Enterprise Holdings teams for their commitment to integrating the company’s core values into their daily operations. That means the Atlanta region not only achieved operational excellence during the past fiscal year, but also focused on key priority areas such as philanthropy, diversity, business ethics and environmental conservation/sustainability.
“This annual competition, named for my father, is actually a strategic management initiative,” said Jo Ann Taylor Kindle, president Enterprise Holdings Foundation. “Through the Founding Values program, our senior managers and their teams work to integrate our company’s core values into their local business planning and operations every fiscal year.”
On behalf of each regional team that won the Founding Values Award, the Enterprise Holdings Foundation provides $20,000 in grants to benefit area non-profits. One of the organizations in the Atlanta area benefiting from this grant is Habitat for Humanity International.
“We are understandably proud of our recent recognition and thank our current employees for their commitment that contributes to our success,” said Dan Miller, vice president and general manager for Enterprise Holdings in Atlanta. “We look forward to building an even stronger team of customer-focused individuals in 2014 who not only have the skills and drive to continue to grow our business, but who also understand the importance of living the company’s values day in and day out.”
Enterprise’s promote-from-within culture is the major driver behind its need to recruit thousands of new employees annually throughout North America. “We put our employees in a position to succeed immediately, and we promote almost exclusively from within,” Miller said. “That makes Enterprise an ideal choice for candidates seeking a great, long-term career opportunity.”
Last year alone, nearly 11,000 individuals were promoted or took on new challenges in various positions throughout Enterprise Holdings’ global network, contributing to new opportunities for recently hired management trainees, and a need to add even more. In addition to management trainees, other opportunities such as customer service and support positions within Atlanta’s airport location are also available.
Enterprise Holdings operates a global network of more than 8,100 airport and neighborhood locations. In Atlanta, Enterprise Holdings’ three-brand car rental network includes 120 neighborhood and airport branch locations in the metropolitan area.
