Hydra-Flex Inc., a manufacturer of innovative fluid-handling products for the vehicle wash, hydro excavation, and industrial cleaning industries, has been recognized as an Employer of Excellence by the Dakota-Scott Workforce Development Board (WBD).

The Dakota-Scott WBD awarded 12 organizations with the Employer of Excellence award for their employee retention, compensation, and training practices. Each participant completed a survey that allowed its employment practices to be analyzed by a consulting firm. Hydra-Flex won the award based on numerous metrics including: turnover, rate of growth, promotion rates, employee evaluations and feedback, percentage of employees injured, diversity of management, benefits offered, training expenditures, paid days off, and increase in pay.

“To be recognized as an Employer of Excellence in our community is both gratifying and humbling,” stated Jaime Harris, the company’s president and CEO. “This award, along with the passionate group of people we retain, validates our efforts to make Hydra-Flex a great place to work.”
