YULEE, FL – Florida Public Utilities Company (FPUC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chesapeake Utilities Corporation (NYSE: CPK), announced today that the Company has once again been recognized as a Top Workplace in Central Florida. In August, Chesapeake Utilities’ Delaware operating companies were recognized as a Top Workplace in Delaware for a ninth consecutive year.
“This Top Workplace award recognizes our FPUC employees’ drive and dedication and is a result of the personal connections they make with our customers and communities, and their commitment to delivering safe and reliable energy service every day,” said Jeff Householder, President and Chief Executive Officer for Chesapeake Utilities Corporation. “Our employees bring their diverse and inclusive perspectives to help us achieve our goals, and I’m honored to work alongside them as they have risen to the challenge time after time during this very difficult year.”
This honor is based entirely on feedback from employees who were surveyed by the research firm Energage. In Florida, Energage partners with the Orlando Sentinel to publish the survey results. The anonymous survey measures how well companies set a clear direction for the future, create a culture of high performance and foster strong connections with and among their employees. Survey results for FPUC included employee comments about their confidence in the direction of the Company; the positive work environment; the family-like atmosphere; the Company’s strong values and ethics; the encouragement of different points of views; and the genuine appreciation of employee efforts. Additionally, survey responses indicated that the majority of employees feel that they are “a part of something meaningful” and would “highly recommend” working for the Company.
