Our goal is to ensure that associates understand why they are at Forest City and how their individual talent improves our business and the lives of our residents, tenants and communities. We make this vision a reality through a continual focus on ways to expand the resources available to our associates. In 2016, we established the HR Associate Services Team dedicated to providing our associates on-demand access to the most requested information on common HR topics, such as benefits, life events, payroll and timekeeping, and associate development. </div><div>In 2016, Cleveland.com/The Plain Dealer named Forest City one of the top places to work in northeast Ohio for the fourth consecutive year. The list includes 150 companies and is based on employee nominations and surveys. The committee ranks companies based upon the following criteria: workplace benefits, culture, training programs, career management, future outlook and feeling valued in the workplace. Our consistently high ranking reflects Forest City’s continued excellence in each of these areas.</div><div>Forest City’s “FC Voices” associate survey is an opportunity for our associates to provide feedback about their employment experience and contribute to the continuous improvement of our company culture. During our company’s REIT transition in 2016, we made the decision to postpone the FC Voices survey until 2017.
