About the program

Created in 2006, this statewide survey and awards program was a project of the Society for Human Resource Management - Maine State Council (MESHRM) and Best Companies Group. Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the top 100 Best Places to Work in Maine.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 employees working in Maine;
  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in the state of Maine; and
  • Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.

Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Maine, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings. The first part, worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation, consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. The second part, worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation, consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.

The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings in three size categories:

  • 34 small winners (15-49 U.S. employees)
  • 45 medium winners (50-249 U.S. employees) Systems Engineering’s category
  • 21 large winners (250+ U.S. employees)

Rankings will be revealed for the first time in the October 17th edition of Mainebiz. Partners endorsing the program include: Mainebiz, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, and Maine HR Convention.
