Employees vote global company as top place to work for third straight year

Chem-Trend, a global leader in the development and production of high-performance release agents and casting lubricants, has been selected as a Detroit Free Press Top Workplace for the third consecutive year.

Chem-Trend is among Michigan’s top 100 workplaces, according to results from an employee satisfaction survey conducted by Workplace Dynamics. The Howell-based company placed sixth in the midsize business category, which includes a field of 35 total honorees. In general, workers cite pay and benefits, training and advancement opportunities, culture, leadership, flexibility and good corporate citizenship as reasons for their vote.

“Once again, this high ranking is a direct testimony to the pride and passion displayed by our most valuable resource, our employees,” said Devanir Moraes, Chem-Trend president and CEO. “This shows that Chem-Trend employees continue to live and breathe our values and guiding principles.”

Moraes ties the solid level of employee satisfaction to Chem-Trend’s positive culture and commitment to excellence. This commitment fosters an environment focused on business integrity, continuous improvement, quality and innovation, to the benefit of both internal and external stakeholders.

“We thank our employees for continuing to create high value for our customers and for maintaining our outstanding company culture, which has been key to our success and will continue to be into the future,” said Moraes.

Chem-Trend is the only chemical company named to the Top Workplaces list. Workplace Dynamics began partnering with media companies nationally in 2006 on the annual Top Workplaces survey.

Chem-Trend will be honored at the 2014 Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces awards breakfast Nov. 12, 2014. The Top 100 rankings and overall results will be showcased in a special Sunday section of the newspaper Nov. 16, 2014.
