Biddeford, Maine based Volk Packaging Corporation was recently named as one of the 2021 Best Places to Work in Maine. The awards 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, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, and Maine HR Convention.
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). Volk Packaging won in the medium-sized category and is one of the few manufacturers on the list. Volk was also named to the prestigious list in 2011 when they last applied.
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-phase process to determine the Best Places to Work in Maine. The first phase consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second phase consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. 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.
Volk Packaging Corporation will be recognized in the October 18th edition of Mainebiz where the rankings will be revealed for the first time, following a planned awards event.
