Fortune magazine included 4 companies in Oklahoma on its annual list of the 100 best companies to work for. The companies are:

QuikTrip 66th on Fortune's "Best Places to Work" list

Chesapeake, Devon and American Fidelity Assurance are based in Oklahoma City. Quiktrip’s headquarters are in Tulsa.

Here’s what the magazine said that makes each of these companies great:

Chesapeake Energy. “A sleek new 63,000 square foot childcare center that’s big enough for 300 children is the largest such facility in the state — and the latest addition to the natural gas producer’s perk-filled headquarters.”

Devon Energy. “In March the company will move into a new 50-story tower, the tallest building in the state. When planning the new building, management incorporated employee requests, including a coffee shop and a dry cleaner.”

American Fidelity Assurance: “Nearly half this insurer’s workforce is over age 45, and 18% have been here more than 20 years. All employees get an annual holiday bonus or incentive package, plus a defined-benefit pension plan.”

QuikTrip. “The convenience-store chain staffs new stores with veteran employees who bring the company’s “superfriendly” culture with them.”
