Hancock Lumber announced it’s been named a Best Place to Work in Maine for the ninth consecutive year.

“This is such exciting news — number nine is just as rewarding, if not more so, than number one,” chief executive officer Kevin Hancock said in a companywide email. “To be able to sustain this employee experience and culture while growing and onboarding new people and new companies is a fantastic accomplishment!”

The Best Places to Work survey is a system that has enabled Hancock Lumber to create a differentiating culture which translates into an incredible experience for everyone connected — their employees and their families, customers, vendors, community partners and beyond.

Hancock leverages this third-party survey process to capture employee feedback and uses the data to keep improving throughout the year and year-over-year.

While Hancock’s 650 employees across 16 locations will pause, celebrate and reflect on this nine-time honor, it won’t be for too long. Being a best place to work is more than the award, the banners, and the logo. The goal is to have a culture that enriches the lives of people that work at Hancock Lumber, fosters a high level of engagement, and guides good minute-to-minute decision-making by all employees.
