According to a recent survey from The Conference Board, 58% of workers are likely to leave their company if they don’t have access to professional development or career training. Enterprise Holdings understands this all too well, and believes that career development is critical to attracting and retaining top talent. In this series, three Enterprise employees share how they’ve worked their way up at the company, where internal mobility is embedded in the culture. Read on for part two, check out part one here, and stay tuned for part three.

When Ritu Shannon did a four-month internship at Enterprise Rent-A-Car during her sophomore year of college, she never imagined it would lead to a lifelong career at the company—yet more than two decades later, she’s still going strong.

“My internship was a ton of fun, and I got exposed to a lot of different aspects of the business,” Shannon says. “When I graduated, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do but I’d had a good experience with Enterprise. My approach was let me get more experience and see where things lead. That was 22 years ago.”

Her career at Enterprise exemplifies the way the company champions internal growth and gives employees the opportunity to live and work all over the world. Over the course of her tenure, Shannon has criss-crossed Canada to take on various roles, starting as a management trainee in her hometown of Victoria on Vancouver Island. Today, she’s a sales director based in Toronto.
