CBF Named One of Baltimore’s Best Places to Work

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) this month earned a spot on the Baltimore Business Journal’s 2024 Best Places to Work list.

CBF is one of 50 organizations to receive this year’s award. Winners were selected based on an employee survey that measured engagement, leadership, culture, benefits, diversity, equity and inclusion, and more. During the survey process, employees were able to highlight why they value working at CBF—including benefits like the nonprofit’s unique waterfront facilities and flexible 36-hour work week.

CBF is a regional nonprofit with many employees living and working in the Baltimore metro area and across Maryland. CBF’s Annapolis headquarters, the Philip Merrill Center, is one of the world’s most energy-efficient buildings with Bayfront beach and river access available to staff.

Watershed Restoration Scientist, Rob Schnabel, has worked out of the organization’s headquarters in Annapolis for nearly 25 years. “The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is an excellent place to have a career,” Schnabel said. “Our office is filled with inspiring staff, meaningful work, and exceptional flexibility and organizational benefits.”

Karrie Frostbutter, Maryland Operations and Finance Manager started working at CBF in 2016. “The regenerative flextime offered at CBF is such a gift,” Frostbutter said. “It allows me to really balance my work and my life. CBF recognizes that everyone has different needs and adapts to them.”

CBF currently has several job openings in Maryland and across the Chesapeake Bay region. Information about CBF’s employee benefits can be found here.

The organization has a robust breadth of work in Baltimore, including its Baltimore Harbor Environmental Education Program and Baltimore Oyster Gardening Program. It also has a long history of community-driven environmental advocacy, fighting for cleaner water and air for the people of Baltimore.

Baltimore Business Journal will present the Best Places to Work awards and rankings at a ceremony on May 16 at Camden Yards.
