WIKA USA is committed to recognizing employees who exemplify one of the company’s seven core values. The peer-nominated award is presented to employees who go above and beyond in their roles, all while upholding WIKA’s commitment to integrity, customer satisfaction, partnership, safety, continuous improvement, social responsibility, and excellence.
Established when WIKA was founded in 1946, core values are the standards by which WIKA measures itself and its employees. Thanks to employees’ commitment to these corporate values, WIKA has become a worldwide leader in industrial measurement technology. The company would not be where it is today without this dedication from within.
Employees who do more than expected are vital to WIKA’s overall mission of helping customers succeed through superior instrumentation solutions. This is why WIKA USA began the Core Value Award program two decades ago – to acknowledge employees for their hard work and dedication.
Corporate Core Values are Keys to Company Success
A peer-nominated program, Core Value Awards give employees a special way to thank their colleagues for doing extraordinary work. Recipients are recognized for making a positive impact on WIKA’s continued success. Each nominee is chosen for exemplifying one of seven core values:
- Integrity: Promoting ethical business practices
- Customer Satisfaction: Creating positive customer experiences
- Partnership: Encouraging collaboration in the workplace
- Safety: Maintaining a safe work environment
- Continuous Improvement: Improving WIKA policies and processes
- Social Responsibility: Improving the community and the world at large
- Excellence: Exceeding expectations in work that directly impacts company success
A committee composed of senior managers chooses the winners, who receive a plaque, monetary award, and a designated parking spot at the main WIKA USA campus in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
Corporate Core Values Award Winners: October 2020

Eugene Gerth, Maintenance, Pressure Gauge Division | Recognized for Excellence
Peter Braun recognizes Eugene’s ongoing commitment to doing more than what is required. “Eugene had been tasked to organize and clean up the mezzanine above dial printing, and he did an excellent job! He has since organized and cleaned up the downstairs compressor room, and now has taken on the chemical room as well. All this is being done during the times when he does not have a call to repair equipment. Thank you, Eugene, for a job well done!”
Sarah Larbi, Shipping, Pressure Gauge Division | Recognized for Customer Satisfaction
Brent Docker writes that Sarah recognized that the labels for a particular customer was incorrect. “By catching this error before the order was shipped out, she ensured that the customer remained satisfied with our service.” Thank you, Sarah! (photo not available)
