HealthReach named one of 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine

WATERVILLE—HealthReach Community Health Centers was recently named as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine. The award program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Society for Human Resource Management—Maine State Council (MESHRM) and Best Companies Group. Partners endorsing the program include: Mainebiz, Maine State Chamber of Commerce and the Maine HR Convention.

“It is a privilege for our organization to receive the designation as one of the Best Places to Work in Maine,” said Connie Coggins, President/CEO of HealthReach. “The teamwork and dedication of our staff members has really made a difference as we’ve cared for patients in our communities during an extremely challenging time. We are fortunate to have such a committed team.”

This statewide survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Maine, benefitting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine list is made up of 84 companies in three size categories: small (15—49 employees), medium (50—249 employees) and large (250+).

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following 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 one year.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Maine. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Maine and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
