84 companies named Maine's 'best places to work'

Despite changes in the workplace brought on by the pandemic, the Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resources Management has named 84 companies as the winners in the 15th annual "Best Places to Work in Maine" program.

The number is down slightly from the 100 companies honored in 2019, the most ever.

The Best Places to Work in Maine list is intended to encourage excellence in Maine employers and recognizes those that have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments. The organization that manages the program, Best Companies Group, selects the recipients based on information gathered from all applicants, including employee benefits, workplace policies and employee responses to a comprehensive satisfaction survey.

In response to changes spurred by the public health crisis, this year's survey also included questions designed to collect feedback from employees working at home. 

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. Organizations often use the report to make improvements in their workplace cultures.

Rankings of the winners, categorized by number of U.S. employees, will be revealed in a special publication of media sponsor Mainebiz. Unlike in past years, the Best Places program is not planning a live event to celebrate the winners.
