CES, Inc. Recognized as One of the Best Places to Work in Maine

BREWER, MAINE- CES, Inc., a Maine based firm of engineers, environmental scientists, and professional surveyors, was recently named as one of the 2015 Best Places to Work in Maine. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Maine State Council and Best Companies Group.

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 2015 Best Places to Work in Maine list is made up of 75 companies in three size categories: small (15-49 U.S. employees), medium (50-249 U.S. employees) and large (250+ U.S. employees).

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Maine,” said CES President/CEO Denis St. Peter. “Our commitment to our employees is an integral part of our corporate culture. So much so, that being recognized as a desirable place to work became a part of our vision statement five years ago in order to help us identify and implement workplace improvements and achieve our commitment.”

“It’s a simple concept and a win-win for CES and our employees. Valuing our employees not only makes for a more enjoyable work day, it also means our employees take pride in their work resulting in more successes for the company,” said CES Executive Vice-President Jeff Teunisen.

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.

Founded in 1978, CES is headquartered in Brewer with five other locations throughout Maine.  CES’ team of approximately 70 employees includes licensed Registered Professional Engineers, Certified Geologists, Certified Soil Scientists, Professional Land Surveyors, Professional Foresters, GIS Analysts, CAD Technicians, and Environmental Scientists.
