This year's top winners of the "Best Places to Work in Maine" in all three categories are companies that have consistently made the list each year, including Dechra, Machias Savings Bank, Allagash Brewing Co., and iBec Creative Inc.

The designation by Best Companies Group recognizes businesses that have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments. The assessment process administered by the independent research firm evaluated each company's employee policies and procedures and surveyed responses from employees.

Now in its 17th year conducting surveys about Maine, the program saw 100 organizations named to the list for the second year.
