Get out your champagne and start to celebrate! Citadel EHS has been named to the Best Places to Work SoCal 2022 list by Best Companies Group, a BridgeTower Media Company. Citadel was recognized and selected based on responses from a detailed and comprehensive survey of its employees.

Citadel CEO, Loren Witkin responded to the win with a promise to his employees to continuously strive to do better saying,

Congratulations to everyone. It is certainly a terrific achievement. As I frequently say, while I appreciate the trophy taking, it’s the information that we get from the survey which is most important. We scored in the 90s in every category, but we know that there are always areas for room for improvement to make us a better best company.

The leadership team digs into the survey results every year which informs the team on which initiatives to take on for the following year, which we will do starting in October.

While we should never rest our laurels, for today, let’s savor the recognition and then tomorrow will start our work doing better.”


Loren’s statement echoes the Citadel company values of empowerment–Citadel’s commitment to our employees goes beyond a paycheck. We care about their safety, wellbeing, and financial success. We nurture a culture that empowers our employees, because they are integral to our success. And a large part of that is making sure that we create a work environment that people want to be a part of.
This was also reinforced by HR Manager Shannon Mateik’s thank you to the staff who took time out of their day to complete the survey,

I want to thank everyone who took the time out of your busy day to complete the survey. As we have mentioned in the past this is really an important survey for employee owners to complete. It is helpful for us to know as a company where we need improvement and what we have been doing right. A reminder you don’t have to wait once a year for this survey to let us know what we need improvement on, you can always reach out with suggestions anytime.

Thank you all for being so awesome and making Citadel such a great company to work for!”
