The "Maine's Best Places To Work" list has been released by The Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resources Management. The "Best Places to Work in Maine" project is a statewide program managed by Best Companies Group.

Local companies follow a strict set of guidelines and submit their application to get on the list. The Best Companies Group then evaluates employee procedures, policies, and responses from the companies staff.

Is your employer listed here?  What do you think it takes to be one of the "Best Places To Work" in Maine?  Let us know in the COMMENTS section below!
