What makes Toyota a ‘Glassdoor 2018 Best Place to Work’? Respect for people and continuous improvement, the two pillars of The Toyota Way.
The Toyota Way is “how we approach everything we do and that includes making our culture one where team members feel valued and are encouraged to challenge what’s possible. As a leader, providing that type of support — where people aren’t afraid to fail — I think that breeds confidence. It fosters innovation and when team members believe they can do epic things, they usually do.” - Terri Von Lehmden, GM of Talent Acquisition at Toyota.
If there's anyone who knows what it's like to go for what they want it's Tina. After facing challenges in her life, she decided to start over and go back to school as a non-traditional student. Tina started her journey at Toyota as an intern as part our Rainbow Push partnership, and her dedication and drive earned her a full-time offer as a college programs recruiter. Tina fully embodies our commitment to challenge what’s possible every day. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQgf1
