The Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resources Management has announced the winners in the 13th annual Best Places to Work in Maine program.
The Best Places to Work in Maine list recognizes companies that have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments. The organization that manages the program, Best Companies Group, gathered information from all registered organizations, including employee benefits, workplace policies, and employee responses to a comprehensive satisfaction survey.
Participating companies receive an employee feedback report in an effort to help them improve their scores. The report summarizes employee engagement and satisfaction data and includes employees’ written comments. The report is used by many organizations to make significant improvements in their workplace culture.
The program is part of a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence in companies throughout the state.
The 75 winners, split into different size categories, will be revealed in ranked order at an awards celebration on October 9 at the Augusta Civic Center. A complete list of top companies will be featured in a statewide publication produced by Mainebiz.
In the medium employer category (50-249 U.S. employees), Lincoln County businesses Bath Savings Institution and Damariscotta Bank & Trust were recognized. Hancock Lumber was chosen in the large employer category (250 or more U.S. employees).
Endorsing partners of this program include the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, the Maine Department of Labor, the Department of Economic and Community Development, Maine HR Convention, and Mainebiz.
