You’re the Tops!

We are proud to be recognized as a 2019 Top Workplace! Chesapeake Utilities Corporation was named a top place to work in Delaware for the eighth consecutive year and in central Florida, FPU was honored as a Top Workplace for the first time.

These honors are based on employee feedback surveyed by Energage, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace engagement. In Delaware, Energage partners with The News Journal and in central Florida with the Orlando Sentinel.

Energage invited 711 employers in the Delaware region to take the survey with 81 of these organizations participating. As a result, 60 Delaware companies earned Top Workplace recognition based on the employee feedback. Chesapeake Utilities Corporation ranked No. 10 among the top mid-sized workplaces category.

“Our employees’ strategic focus, innovative approach to the market and commitment to our customers and communities is the secret to our Company’s success, I’m honored to work alongside this group of engaged employees who care about each other and the customers and communities we serve.”


Jeff Householder, President and CEO

For the central Florida region, Energage invited 826 employers with 112 of these organizations agreeing to take the survey. Thus, 81 central Florida employers earned the Top Workplace recognition. FPU ranked 36 in the top small workplaces category.

Congratulations to everyone as our culture speaks in volume! According to the survey results, approximately nine out of 10 Chesapeake employees surveyed said that they would “highly recommend” working for the Company. Employees emphasized the Company’s strong values and ethics, confidence in the direction of the Company, feeling a part of something meaningful, and genuine appreciation of employee efforts. Survey responses included comments about the positive work environment, the family-like atmosphere, and the opportunity to volunteer for community organizations during work hours.
