Hydrite® Named Winner of 2023 Top Workplaces Award

BROOKFIELD, Wis., May 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Hydrite®, an integrated manufacturer and supplier of chemicals and related services, was recognized as a 2023 Top Workplaces award winner by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for creating high employee experience and exceptional workplaces.  Hydrite has won Top Workplaces six other years in the past.

The Top Workplaces award is based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party engagement survey. The survey assesses an organization using several factors, including 15 research-based culture drivers and three statements that measure employee engagement.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is the publisher for the Top Workplaces in the Milwaukee/Southeast Wisconsin region. Participating Counties include Dodge, Jefferson, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington, and Waukesha.

“Winning a seventh Top Workplaces award is the ultimate compliment to being named 2023 Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year,” Hydrite Chief Human Resources Officer Dan Sager said. “Manufacturer of the Year is essentially based on results.  A Top Workplaces award is based on how those results are achieved – by highly engaged and dedicated individuals.   Manufacturers are underrepresented on Top Workplaces lists which makes this an extraordinary honor for the People of Hydrite.”

Hydrite President Kevin Honkamp commented, “We are proud to be recognized as a Top Workplace in Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin where competition for talent is intense. Our strong culture remains key to what makes Hydrite a great place to work.  It is a testament to the words of my grandfather R.C. Honkamp, ‘All of this is possible with the excellence of our people, Hydrite’s greatest asset.’  It is an honor to receive this year’s 2023 Top Workplaces award.”

As a company with a strong commitment to their employees, Hydrite stands by their core values and expectations which focus around Integrity, Innovation, Quality, People, and Responsible Growth.
