Rhein Chemie Corporation Named One of the Best Employers in Ohio

Chardon-based company honored for its employment practices

Rhein Chemie Corporation has been named one of the Best Employers in Ohio for 2010 in the medium-sized company category. The statewide awards program managed by the Best Companies Group is honoring Rhein Chemie for its exemplary employment practices that help benefit the state’s economy, workforce and overall business initiatives.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part assessment designed to gather detailed data about each participating company to determine the complete list of the Best Employers in Ohio. The first phase consisted of an evaluation of each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics. During the second phase, employees completed an anonymous 72-question survey that measured their engagement and satisfaction with the company.

Rhein Chemie Corporation encourages its employes to become engaged in setting the company’s culture. Hector Diaz-Stringel, President of Rhein Chemie Corporation, keeps employees motivated by having frequent company and department discussion forums and keeping the lines of communication open. “Employees appreciate working at a company where they know they play an important role in achieving a common goal,” Diaz comments. “Respected employees produce results and have fun doing it.”

Rhein Chemie demonstrates its commitment to its employees by sponsoring several employee-focused programs and events, including a wellness program, company-sponsored luncheons and off-site events for employees and their families.

The Best Employers in Ohio awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in the state of Ohio in three categories: small-sized companies (15 – 24 employees), medium-sized companies (25 – 249 employees) and large-sized companies (250+ employees). To be considered for participation, publicly or privately held companies must have a minimum of 15 employees working at a facility in Ohio.

Winning companies will be formally honored at an Awards Ceremony at a date to be determined.
