Eighty companies make 2017 ‘Best Places to Work in Maine’ list

The Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resources Management has named 80 companies to the 2017 “Best Places to Work in Maine” list.

The 12th annual program 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.

The program is part of a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence throughout all Maine companies.

All 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 80 winners, split into different size categories, will be revealed in ranked order at an awards celebration on Oct. 10 and listed in the special awards publication, produced by Mainebiz.
