Kepware Technologies was recently recognized as one of Maine’s top employers in the medium company category by the Society for Human Resource Management’s Maine State Council (MESHRM) at its annual awards and recognition dinner on October 7, 2015. The Best Places to Work in Maine program recognizes companies that have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments.

Kepware, established in 1995, is a private software development company headquartered in Portland, Maine. Kepware develops software solutions for the Industrial Automation Industry that help bridge the communication gap between diverse hardware and software applications. Key to the company’s continuing success is its flagship solution KEPServerEX—a communications platform that manages critical production, facility, and infrastructure data.

“Kepware is a great place to work because we truly care about our employees. While our shareholders have high expectations for growth and profitability, unlike many organizations, we place the needs of our employees, customers, and partners on par with shareholders,” said Brett Austin, President, Kepware. “In fact, it is typical that when discussing and making decisions about the future of Kepware, we operate from the mindset that employees are our most important stakeholders.”

The tenth annual Best Places to Work in Maine list is comprised of 75 companies from around the state separated into one of three size categories: small (15-49 employees), medium (50-249 employees), and large (250+ U.S. employees).

The assessment process (administered by the Best Companies Group) evaluated each company’s employee policies and procedures in addition to survey responses from employees. In August, the Best Companies Group released a list of the 75 companies that made the cut as an overall Best Places to Work. The program marks the most recent step in a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence among all Maine companies.
