Tidal Wave Auto Spa, one of the fastest-growing express car wash companies in the country, won six 2023 Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards® - including two gold, two silver and two bronze - for various categories. 

The company's annual philanthropy event, Charity Day, won its first gold award for Best Initiative for Philanthropy and Corporate Giving.

Both bronze wins were for learning and development programs, including Best Launch of a Corporate Learning University and Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Program.

"Our company has grown significantly over the past few years, and we recognize that our people are Tidal Wave's most valuable resource in providing the ultimate car wash experience to our customers. Each of these awards recognize programs our team has worked incredibly hard on to increase engagement with our employees, enhance our recruitment process, make a positive impact in the communities we serve, and ultimately provide the tools to develop a high-performing team across our footprint. I'm very proud of our team for their collaboration and innovation that made these awards possible."
