Chesapeake Energy

Thu, 2016-09-01 12:04 -- Don Ball

Chesapeake is the second-largest producer of natural gas and the 13th largest producer of oil and natural gas liquids in the U.S., but they’re always looking for ways to enhance their employees’ personal growth through their unique culture. One way is by putting on a company-wide talent contest as a great opportunity for employees to show off their unknown talents, but to encourage employee interaction and team-building as well. Part of the show is a rock band challenge, where employee-manned bands compete against each other, leading to Chesapeake Energy’s company band, "Shale Play," earning the title of the world's "Best Corporate Band" at the 10th annual Fortune Battle of the Corporate Bands.
