Hallowell, Maine — September 22, 2020 – Blue Marble Geographics®, a GIS and geodetic software company with offices in Hallowell and Brunswick, announced that it was named one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine.
“Being named one of the Best Places to Work in Maine is a great honor for us,” said Patrick Cunningham, Blue Marble Geographic’s President and CEO. “We made a conscious decision a few years ago to make Blue Marble a great place to work through feedback loops with employees and a long hard look at our workplace. We strive to provide a fun and engaging work environment and a culture that sincerely cares about our employees’ well-being. This recognition helps affirm that we are on the right path.”
The awards program was created in 2006 by the Society for Human Resource Management, Maine State Council (MESHRM), and Best Companies Group. Partners endorsing the program include Mainebiz, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, and the Maine HR Convention.
The Best Places to Work in Maine program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employment places in Maine, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. A total of 84 companies in three categories; small (15-49 U.S. employees), medium (50-249 U.S. employees), and large (250+ U.S. employees); were awarded this year.
Companies from across the state participated in the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Maine. The first part, which was worth approximately 25% of the total assessment, evaluated each participating company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. The second part, which was worth about 75% of the evaluation, consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.
“We are very excited and proud of being named one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine,” said Danielle Caron, Operations Manager at Blue Marble Geographics. “Hiring and retaining talented professionals has always been our priority as a company. We are very fortunate to have an amazing team of highly-qualified professionals working on cutting-edge technology right here in Maine.”
Blue Marble Geographics will be recognized in the October 19th edition of Mainebiz, where the rankings will be published. Learn more about career opportunities at Blue Marble Geographics at bluemarblegeo.com.
