About 'Best Places to Work in Maine'

The 2017 "Best Places to Work in Maine" program recognizes companies that have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments. The assessment process, administered by Best Companies Group, evaluated each company’s employee policies and procedures as well as survey responses from the companies’ employees. In August, the Maine Society for Human Resources Management released a list of the 80 companies that made the cut as an overall Best Place to Work. The program marks the most recent step in a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence among all Maine companies.

For the fourth year in a row, Belfast-based Edward Jones took top honors among large companies (250 or more employees) and Patriot Subaru of Saco was the No. 1 medium employer (50 to 249 employees) in the “Best Places to Work in Maine” competition.
Maine Information Network, based in Augusta, a newcomer to the list, rocketed to first place among smaller businesses (fewer than 50 employees).
The Society for Human Resource Management’s Maine State Council (MESHRM) recognized Maine’s top employers for 2017 at its annual awards and recognition dinner Tuesday night at the Augusta Civic Center, with more than 700 people attending.
