The Tennessean Media Group has a demonstrated commitment to growing the careers of our staffers. We have a very active internal job posting system which results in many promotions from within. For example, in the past year, over 60 staffers have landed new jobs or have been promoted up the career ladder of their current positions. Also, 80% of our managers and supervisors reached their current jobs through internal promotions, which is a strong indicator of our commitment to grow leaders.
