FirstService Residential Launches New Employment Website and Lifestyle Blog
“These digital initiatives expand our audiences and enable us to showcase the breadth of professional property management and how it can improve lives,” said Chuck Fallon, CEO of FirstService Residential. “In doing so, we are providing quality content and information to help job seekers build rewarding careers and to further enhance the resident living experience.”
The company created its “I am FirstService Residential” employment website (http://Join.FSResidential.com) to expand its available talent pool by introducing the property management industry and showcasing its culture and career opportunities to candidates beyond the traditional real estate sector. In addition to job openings, the site contains innovative elements, such as profiles and career paths of successful associates across the organization, to illustrate the dynamic and diverse professions and range of advancement opportunities of the community association management industry.
“The Elements of Living” (http://TheElementsofLiving.com) lifestyle blog is an additional channel for the company to strengthen relationships with residents and help them lead healthier, happier lives. Designed like an online magazine, the blog features a continuously updated mix of informative and compelling articles on family living, health and wellness, pets, home life, cooking, green living and gardening, travel and other lifestyle topics that resonate with a consumer audience. Additionally, visitors to the site can easily share content to their personal networks via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
“Property management has evolved beyond the operational expectations and responsibilities of managing a building or collecting dues,” explains CEO Fallon. “By building on the concept of a higher level of sophistication and customer service delivery designed to enhance quality of life – a cross-over from the hospitality industry into the residential sector – we are positively impacting people’s lives and transforming the property management industry into an even more sought-after profession and career building opportunity.”
