KMA-BPTW-BLOG-PIC-2016_350WThe Society for Human Resource Management’s Maine State Council (MESHRM) recognized Maine’s top employers for 2016 at its annual awards and recognition dinner for the Best Places to Work in Maine program, Tuesday, October 4

For the third year in a row, Belfast-based Edward Jones took top honors among large companies (250 or more employees) and Patriot Subaru, located in Saco, was the #1 medium employer (50 to 249 employees). Claiming the top spot among small employers (15 – 49 employees) was Albin, Randall & Bennett, CPAs of Portland.

A sponsor of the annual “Best Places” program again this year, KMA is pleased to have worked with many of the companies who made the finalist list by helping them manage compliance with state and Federal Human Resources laws and regulations, employee relations and engagement, hiring and retention practices, and various other aspects of their HR and organizational development needs. CONGRATULATIONS!

All companies who participate in the Best Places to Work in Maine program should be commended. Many use the process to help them make improvements in their workplace culture, and as a benchmark for 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.
