MIDCOAST — Damariscotta Bank & Trust was recently named as one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Maine. This statewide survey and awards program was created in 2006 to identify, recognize, and award the best places of employment in Maine that benefit the state’s economy, its workforce, and business.
Damariscotta Bank & Trust was honored in the medium-sized category (50-249 U.S. employees).
The survey is presented by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Maine State Council in partnership with Mainebiz, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, Maine HR Convention, Maine Department of
Labor, Maine Department of Economic and Community Development, and Best Companies Group.
“We are very excited to have been chosen as one the Best Places to Work in Maine for the fourth year in a row,” said Marcia Benner, Senior Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer, in a news release. “Our employees are the center of our organization and a big part of what makes our bank great. They make a difference in our customer’s lives and in their communities. As an organization we take pride that every employee is treated as an individual not as a number just as we treat our customers,”
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. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% 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.
“DB&T started in the early 1970s to meet the needs of families and small businesses in the Damariscotta area, followed by an expansion to Lincoln, Knox and Waldo County. We are very proud of the Bank we have built together and appreciative of our knowledgeable, helpful and approachable employees because this is what makes our institution reflect these attributes for our customers. We thank our exceptional employees for making us a Best Place to Work in Maine for another year,” said Scott Conant, CEO and president.
Damariscotta Bank & Trust will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in Maine awards ceremony on October 2 and will be listed in a special publication by Mainebiz. The final rankings will be announced at the event.
