It's something that takes hard work, determination, bravery, constant change, evolution, positive attitude, loads of energy, belief, desire and above all, passion. Chess is a great place to work because of our great people. Everyone wants to work for a great company but it's those people working together as one team who make it great. I'm so proud of our people and their commitment to our culture. They are as passionate about making Chess a great place to work as they are passionate that we are a great place to be a customer.
