Lewiston, ME—October 12, 2012— Westbrook-based Cintas Corporation is ranked #1 “Best Places to Work in Maine” in the large company category.  PeoplesChoice Credit Union, located in Saco, took the same honor in the small/medium category at The Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) Maine State Council’s awards and recognition dinner held last night at the Ramada Conference Center in Lewiston.

 

The assessment process, administered by the Best Companies Group, evaluated each company’s employee policies and procedures, as well as responses from the company’s employees to a survey.  In August, the Best Companies Group released a list of the 42 companies who made the cut as the overall Best Places to Work.  The program marks the most recent step in a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence throughout all Maine companies.

 

The rankings for all 42 companies that made the "2012 Best Places to Work in Maine" list were announced last night to a packed house of more than 450 people:

The 2012 Best Places to Work in Maine program, sponsored by Bernstein Shur, recognizes companies who have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments.  Partners endorsing the program include Best Companies Group; the Maine State Chamber of Commerce; MyJobWave.com; and Mainebiz.

The program also helps companies that want to improve their score.  The Best Companies Group’s “Employee Feedback Report” is presented to each participating company, even if it did not make the list.  The report summarizes employee engagement and satisfaction data, the "Maine Benchmark Report," and the transcript of employee written comments.  The report is used by many organizations to make significant improvements in their workplace culture.
