Lubrizol Honored as a Great Place to Work

CLEVELAND, August 24, 2018 – As The Lubrizol Corporation celebrates its 90th anniversary, the company is honored to have been recognized as an outstanding workplace by three separate organizations in the last few months. Working as a team day-to-day, Lubrizol employees have made Lubrizol a great place to work and build a career.  

In August, Lubrizol was once again recognized as a NorthCoast 99 winner, as it has been every year since 2002. The award considers compensation, employment policies, benefits, work/life balance, communication, professional development and culture.  A cross-section of Northeast Ohio-based employees is surveyed, and the results are determined based on research focused on what top performers want and expect in a workplace. 

The company is also pleased to have been named one of the top 10 large workplaces in the greater Cleveland area. The annual award from The Plain Dealer, a Cleveland-based newspaper, identifies the best places to work based solely on the confidential opinions of employees. Based on responses from employees at its Northeast Ohio facilities, Lubrizol ranked ninth on the large company list. Lubrizol has ranked among the top 10 workplaces every year since 2010.

Additionally, in May 2018, Lubrizol was privileged to be ranked as number #6 on Forbes Magazine's list of America's best midsize employers. Forbes partners with a market research company to anonymously interview employees to determine which companies are included on the list.

According to Andy Panega, vice president, Human Resources, culture is the driving force that makes Lubrizol an outstanding workplace. "It's about the mix of our long-standing culture and the changes we are now creating together. We will never compromise on our culture of safety, ethics and treating people with dignity and respect. Never.  What makes us more powerful, and even unstoppable, however, is the combination with our enhanced Cultural Beliefs," he says. "Now, as we focus on results by clarifying people's accountabilities and empowering them, the future looks even brighter."
