Chesapeake ranked #51, showcasing the company as one of the best employers in the country. “This recognition is a direct reflection of the talent of our employees,” said Doug Lawler, Chesapeake’s Chief Executive Officer. “To be a great place to work, Chesapeake must first be a great business. Our employees remain dedicated to achieving both.” FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work ® Institute to develop the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For list.

According to Great Place to Work, companies featured on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For list have the highest levels of trust and the strongest evidence of employee engagement, and demonstrate the best applied management practices. Lawler added, “We are extremely proud to have our employees rate our company as one of the best workplaces in the U.S. This recognition represents the confidence they have both in their career opportunities and in the company’s future.
