SGC was excited and honored to be recognized with Third Place in the Medium Sized Employer category in the “Best Places to Work in Maine” awards ceremony on Tuesday, October 10!

This program is an annual survey competition for Maine-based companies. It utilizes demographics, policies, and practices currently in place at a company for 25% of a total score, and feedback from employees to an Engagement and Satisfaction Survey to rate the strengths and opportunities of the employer for 75% of a total score.

A company is nominated for outstanding feedback, and is then ranked against companies of a similar size, either inside, or outside of their industry. The 2017 Best Places to Work in Maine list is made up of 80 companies in three size categories: small (15-49 employees), medium (50-249 employees) and large (250+ employees).  SGC was proud to be awarded 3rd place out of more than 40 recognized companies in the Medium Sized Employer category.

Responses to the Engagement and Satisfaction Survey are analyzed and categorized into “8 Core Focus Areas”:

  1. Leadership and Planning
  2. Corporate Culture and Communications
  3. Role Satisfaction
  4. Work Environment
  5. Relationship with Supervisor
  6. Training
  7. Development and Resources
  8. Pay and Benefits and Overall Engagement

SGC was thrilled to rank in the 95th percentile overall, with some Core Focus Areas scoring employee responses up to 98% satisfaction!
