Do you love where you work? See if they made the list for 2022.

Mainebiz reported the annual ranking of the best places to work in Maine. This is the 17th year that you have either fist pumped into the air that you work at one, or sighed that once again your employer didn't make the list.

The list is put together by the Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management. They are hoping that it will get employers to want to be on this list of having the reputation of being a great place to work.


How are the businesses ranked?

It's ranked with a program from Best Companies Group, which picks places based on things like employee benefits, workplace policies, and employee responses to a comprehensive satisfaction survey. Have you ever filled out one of those?

The companies that want to improve get an employee feedback report. I know I've filled out my share of those. It gives an employer a chance to fix and make better anything that needs it. There will be a specific ranking in a future special publication of Mainebiz. But now let's figure out if you get to go to work at one of the best places in Maine.
