Last night a gala was held in Augusta at the Augusta Civic Center to announce Maine's best employers and give them their "Best Places to Work in Maine" awards and recognition they deserve.  Congratulations to all the winners this year!

"Best Places to Work in Maine" program recognizes companies that have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments.

Here is a list of just a few of our local winners whose names you'll recognize.

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.
