When people love where they work and enjoy working with each other, great things happen. Were excited about the recognition from Glassdoor, and were thrilled that it results from the way employees feel about working at Eastman.
I am proud to celebrate the Glassdoor Employees Choice Award winners in earning this tremendous achievement, said Glassdoor co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman. Millions of employees around the world are turning to Glassdoor each month to share their work experiences. It is this type of authentic feedback that helps others find jobs and companies they love, and allows us to honor employers who stand out for their efforts in providing an enjoyable work environment and culture.
The Glassdoor company review survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what its like to work at particular jobs and companies. The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 13, 2013, and November 2, 2014. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 50 company reviews from U.S.-based employees during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoors proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
