If you are an employee of this company and this is within the scope of your employment then all the copyright interest will rest with your employer and nothing with you. It would not be your work to copyright assuming any of the content would qualify in any event.
If you are not an employee, but rather independent, then you would be the CR owner and the employer receives an implied license to use the material for its intended purpose.
If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.
