Colby Co. was recently named as one of the 2021 Best Places to Work in Maine, ranking #6 in the Medium Business Category. 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. The 2021 Best Places to Work in Maine list is made up of 100 companies in three size categories: small (15-49 U.S. employees), medium (50-249 U.S. employees) and large (250+ U.S. employees).
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 which is worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation.
This is the 4th year in a row that Colby Co. has been named to this list, ranking in the Top Ten of companies in its category every year. We are truly humbled by our employees who make this place what it is! Comments from this anonymous survey included:
It’s a fast paced professional workplace with smart people who want to learn and collaborate with everyone on the team. We work hard and play often. Colby Co. is very family oriented with lots of employee and family events throughout the year. Work-life balance is highly encouraged.
As an employee, I have the autonomy and support to excel at my job. There is a shared level of respect and culture of teamwork that makes for an engaging and enjoyable work environment.
Colby Co. prides itself on safety, customer relations/satisfaction, and employees. I have never worked for such a selfless company. Giving to the community, and the employees as much as possible. Company meetings outside the office, company outings, volunteer work, and an amazing work environment that is successful by putting the customers needs before its own. There no sense of “I” at Colby Co., it is such an amazing group of educated people that work as a team to accomplish amazing and sometimes extremely difficult goals.
