MaineWorks is proud to be a certified B Corporation since 2013. B Corporations are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. MaineWorks has gone through this process to validate its social impact- a business being used as a force for good. We understand that we are each dependent upon one another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
MaineWorks is committed to a truly non-discriminatory workplace. As a proud B Corp and member of the
Alternative Staffing Alliance, we strive to be a model for other companies and a catalyst for change around the world.
In 2017, MaineWorks was recognized for creating the most positive overall community impact based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the independent nonprofit B Lab.
MaineWorks was awarded in the Best for Customers list, which includes businesses that earned a customer score in the top 10 percent of more than 2,100 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company's impact on its workers, community, customers and environment. The 174 winning companies in the Customer category come from 63 industries and 29 countries.
The assessment measures the impact a company has on its customers by focusing on whether a company sells products or services that promote public benefit and if they are targeted toward serving underserved populations. It also measures whether a company’s product or service is designed to solve a social or environmental issue. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for the high impact that businesses used as a force for good can make on employees around the world.
MaineWorks is honored and proud to help lead the efforts in dignifying the experience for many who face real barriers to employment. For more information, please visit
