KINGSPORT, Tenn., December 9, 2015 – Eastman has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2016. The company ranked 11th in the large business category. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its eighth year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor. This is the third consecutive year Eastman has received the award.

When people love where they work and enjoy working with each other, great things happen. We’re excited to be named one of the Best Places to Work in 2016, and we’re thrilled that it results from the way employees feel about working at Eastman.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a candid company review of what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. Employees are asked to rate their satisfaction overall and with key factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, and culture and values. Employees are also asked to share pros and cons of working at companies.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees between November 3, 2014 and November 1, 2015. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 company reviews from U.S.-based employees during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
