Sebasticook Valley Health was recently named as one of the 2015 Best Places to Work in Maine. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Maine State Council and Best Companies Group.
Terri Vieira, president and CEO, Sebasticook Valley Health says, “I am exceptionally proud of the highly skilled and talented staff here at Sebasticook Valley Health. It is their daily contributions to serve our patients and community that makes our hospital a great place to receive care and it is their commitment to teamwork that makes us one of the Best Places to Work in Maine.”
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Maine, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. 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 1 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. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the 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.
Sebasticook Valley Health will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Maine awards ceremony on Wednesday, October 7th and will be profiled in a special publication by Mainebiz. The final rankings will be announced at the event.
