The "Best Places to Work in Maine" included uniform supplier Cintas Corp. and PeoplesChoice Credit Union.

The Society for Human Resource Management's 7th annual ranking of the top places to work in the state recognized 11 companies in the large company category, which looked at firms with more than 250 workers, and 31 companies in the small to medium company category, or firms with 15 to 249 workers.

Cintas, which has a location in Westbrook, won the large company category, followed by Consigli Construction Co. Inc. in Portland and Edward Jones in Eliot. In the small company category, the top placed companies were PeoplesChoice of Saco, Turner Barker Insurance of Portland and Biddeford Savings Bank in Biddeford.

The companies were recognized at an awards dinner at the Ramada Conference Center in Lewiston.

The Best Companies Group evaluated each company’s employee policies and procedures, as well as responses from the company’s employees to a survey.

The “Employee Feedback Report” is presented to each participating company, even if it did not make the top rankings. The report includes employee satisfaction data and a transcript of employee-written comments. The report is used by many organizations to make changes or improvements, the Society for Human Resources Management said.
