The Great Place to Work Institute scored companies based on employee survey responses, in which employees rated trust in management, workplace pride and camaraderie and job satisfaction. The institute also added that the 100 companies promote the best applied management practices. In Chesapeakes case, it mostly just practices laying people off.
This recognition is a direct reflection of the talent of our employees, said Doug Lawler, Chesapeakes chief executive officer, in a press release dated Jan. 16. (Yeah, the employees who were left after 800 were laid off in October.)
Chesapeake beat out this year include CarMax (54), Devon Energy (56),
General Mills (64), Mars (76), Microsoft (86) and The Cheesecake Factory
