A record-breaking 75 companies have been named in the tenth annual “Best Places to Work in Maine” list.
These companies underwent a rigorous assessment process that evaluated their employee policies and procedures as well as garnered responses from employees themselves concerning the workplace environment.
KMA is pleased to be a sponsor of the annual program again this year and to have supported many of the companies who ultimately made the list by helping them get a handle on compliance with state and Federal Human Resources laws and regulations, employee relations issues, hiring and retention practices, and various other aspects of their HR and organizational development needs.
The “Best Places to Work in Maine” program is part of a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence in all Maine companies. An awards dinner will be held in October, where winning companies in all three categories (small, medium, and large employers) will find out how they ranked.

About the Program
Many companies use the Best Places to Work in Maine process to help them make improvements in their workplace culture, and as a benchmark to how they are doing compared to their peers. Being considered a “best place to work” is important because premier employers are better able to attract and retain top talent; their employees tend to be more engaged, satisfied, and productive; and consumers react more positively to companies with excellent reputations.
- The Best Places to Work in Maine program is endorsed by the 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.
- To participate, employers must have at least 15 employees in the state of Maine. There is a fee to participate in the program, based on employer size, and it covers the cost of conducting a scientifically validated survey and creating an “Employee Feedback Report” that all program participants receive.
- Results from the survey process determine whether an employer makes the “Best Places to Work in Maine” list.
