Downeast Credit Union has achieved the 2023 Best Places to Work in Maine designation for the seventh year in a row.
The Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, Best Companies Group and BridgeTower Media recently selected the top employers in the state of Maine based on business practices and employee surveys.
To be considered, companies must have at least 15 full-time or part-time employees working in Maine; be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity; be a publicly or privately held business; have a facility in the state of Maine; and be in business a minimum of one year.
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
There were two parts used to determine the rankings. The first consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices and demographics, worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience, which consisted of 75 percent of the total. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.
In response to the notification, Joe Moses, President and CEO of DECU stated, “Our entire organization considers it a true honor to be selected as a 2023 Best Places to Work in Maine employer. We try each day to foster a positive environment for our team to thrive. The board of directors and management team thank them for participating in this survey and holding us in such high regard. We know that our people truly hold the key to success at Downeast.”
