Day’s Jewelers Named One of Best Places to Work in Maine
It’s the third time the company has received recognition for its positive workplace environment.
Waterville, M.E.--Day’s Jewelers must be doing something right.
For the third time, the company has been selected as one of the Best Places to Work in Maine by the Society for Human Resource Management-Maine State Council and the Best Companies Group.
The awards program was started in 2006. Day’s Jewelers previously took home honors in 2014 and 2015.
The selection process involves reviewing companies’ policies, practices and demographics, which accounts for 25 percent of the overall score. The remaining 75 percent consists of an employee survey to measure workplace satisfaction.
“Receiving this award is truly an honor, but mostly it’s a tribute to the 140 employees who work at Day’s,” said Kathy Corey, one of the company owners. “They are the real heroes.”
Human Resources Director Kristie Jandreau echoed this sentiment.
“Day’s employees often describe their co-workers as family,” she said. “We are surrounded by beautiful gems, sparkling diamonds, and the latest fashion accessories. We spend our work days in luxurious showrooms with guests looking for that special piece to commemorate an important occasion or symbol of their love. Relationships are formed with our guests that last for many years. Day’s employees enjoy people and building relationships with our guests and with each other.”
In their interview for National Jeweler’s 50 Jewelers/50 States series, the Coreys explained the importance of empowering their younger employees, which is felt among the staff.
Photographer and Content Producer Brian Chick said: “We are given the tools and support to succeed with in-house training and continued education outside of the workplace.”
And at the Atlanta Jewelry Show in March, Day’s President David Harris gave a presentation on the retailer’s strategy for finding, and keeping, good employees.
An awards ceremony scheduled for Oct. 10 will honor all the companies named as the 2017 Best Places to Work in Maine.
