Cincinnati Enquirer recognizes a growing company as one of the city’s best places to work for 2019

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Sur-Seal has been named a Top Workplace for 2019 by the Cincinnati Enquirer. Recognition of Top Workplaces is based on employee feedback gathered by Energage, LLC through an anonymous third-party survey containing numerous questions around the workplace environment, including connection, execution and alignment. Sur-Seal is among the very top of manufacturing companies in the region to receive the award in 2019.

“We’re honored to be named a Cincinnati top workplace.” says Larry Faist, President and CEO of Sur-Seal. “The environment we work hard to create at Sur-Seal centers around people.

The relaxed, yet professional environment, the feeling of being a part of a growing business and the support individual employees receive with learning and growth are just a few of the highlights of working at Sur-Seal, according to Marcia Ernstes, Organizational Development Leader.

“The people here are a one-of-a-kind bunch from the President all the way to the people who have only been here a year, it is truly the best place I’ve have ever worked at,” was just one of the comments received, Ernstes says. “People enjoy working here and they like that each day is a little different. They like knowing the parts they make go into furnaces, lights and hospitals all over the world. They like knowing that they are making the world cleaner, brighter and safer.”
