Plain Dealer Names Sea-Land Chemical Co. A Winner of the Northeast Ohio Area 2016 Top Workplaces Award
June 20, 2016
Sea-Land Chemical Co. has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplace honor by the Plain Dealer. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection.
“The Top Workplaces Award is not a popularity contest,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “Oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits. However, to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. Who better to ask about work life than the employees, who live in the culture every day? Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
This is the second year in a row that Sea-Land Chemical Co. has won the Top Workplaces award.
“This award is a testament to the culture we have created at Sea-Land Chemical Co., said Joe Clayton, president. “We have worked for many years to create an environment that fosters collaboration, encourages responsibility and supports the longevity of our employees.”
Sea-Land Chemical Co. is a 100-percent employee-owned specialty chemical distributor. The firm has one of the highest employee retention rates in the chemical industry. The average number of years of service among its senior executives is more than 20, while most mid-level employees have been with the firm for 10 years or more.
