Best Places to Work
This employee engagement program will assess what your employees really think about your company culture and benefits. Any company with at least 15 employees in the state of Maine is encouraged to participate. Companies selected as a “Best Place to Work in Maine” will get a chance to celebrate their success and be announced at a gala event in the fall. A complete list of top companies will be featured in a statewide publication put out by Mainebiz.
Interested companies can apply to participate in the program online at www.bestplacestoworkme.com. All registered companies will be surveyed simultaneously following the deadline date.
There is a fee to participate in the “Best Places to Work in Maine” program that helps cover the costs of producing the comprehensive Employee Feedback Report so you can analyze how you did in the employee survey.
Check out what past participants are saying about the "Best Places to Work in Maine" program:
"Putney was thrilled to earn the number one Best Places to Work Award in 2013. Our rapid growth requires continual development of the skills, communication and leadership competencies of our team and that we recruit similarly high caliber people who will enrich our culture and capabilities. The award has helped us attract good quality, motivated candidates as we create new positions and recognizes that we are succeeding on key dimensions that will underpin our growth from start up to a $100 million+ business -- our team and workplace culture."
Sally Amirault, Senior Director, Talent & HR
“Being recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Maine has been a terrific boost to our recruitment efforts, and is often one of the first things potential candidates reference when we meet with them for the first time. It has undoubtedly helped to expand the pool of potential candidates we attract, which in turn helps us maintain the quality of our team here at Portland Webworks”.
Tom Lovering, Director of Business Development
The program is put on by the Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resources Management and is endorsed by, Best Companies Group, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, The Maine Department of Labor, The Department of Economic and Community Development, Maine HR Convention and Mainebiz
