Tennessee in all black on a white background

Eastman Chemical Company was named to the Forbes list of America’s Best-in-State Employers 2020 in the state of Tennessee, according to a press release on the company website.

For its second annual ranking, Forbes partnered with global business data platform Statista to identify the organizations liked best by employees in each of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia.

“We are honored to be recognized in this way and to be named alongside so many notable and reputable companies,” says Mark Costa, chairman and CEO of Eastman Chemical. “As we celebrate our centennial anniversary this year, I am proud that Eastman remains a relevant and thriving employer and that our Kingsport employees value being part of the Eastman team. This recognition reflects an appreciation of our culture, our values, and our purpose of enhancing the quality of life in a material way.”

America’s Best-in-State Employers were identified based on an independent survey from a vast sample of 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 500 people. Employees were not consulted via their employers, but anonymously through a series of online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce.
