CICC Proudly Salutes Solvay's Martinez, California Facility

Ranked #34 in the Fifth Annual "Top 100 Workplaces"

(Posted 09/18/14)


CICC proudly salutes Solvay's Martinez, California facility for being named one of the San Francisco Bay Area's "Top 100 Workplaces" by the Bay Area News Group, publisher of the Contra Costa Times, the San Jose Mercury-News, the Oakland Tribune and other daily and weekly newspapers in California.  The award recognizes a variety of attributes that make the Martinez site unique, in categories of "interesting facts," "health & wellness," and "community involvement."


Selection to the "Top 100" is also based on employee surveys using statistical survey tools.  "This was quite a feat," said Plant Manager Darrel Hodge, noting that overall, the newspapers evaluated more than 1,400 company entries and 47,000 email interviews with employees to determine the overall winners. "The Martinez plant feels a strong sense of family, camaraderie and teamwork among our 45 employees," Hodge continued, "and it showed in our evaluations."  Read more . . .
