Pines Health Services was recently named as one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Maine.

Pines Health Services will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in Maine awards ceremony on October 2nd and will be listed in a special publication by Mainebiz. The final rankings will be announced at the event.

The Best Places program was established in 2006 and is a project of Maine Society for Human Resource Management (MESHRM) and Best Companies Group.

The program was designed to recognize and honor the best places of employment in Maine, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses.

There are 100 companies on the list of 2019 Best Places to Work in Maine, comprised of three size categories: small (15-49 U.S. employees), medium (50-249 U.S. employees) and large (250+ U.S. employees).

To make the list companies had to meet certain eligibility requirements:

- Have at least 15 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

- Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.

The program is comprised of a two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Maine, with the first part consisting of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. The second part, worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation, consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The final rankings were determined by the combined scores.
