Chalmers Is Named “Best Place to Work in Insurance”
September 1, 2021

We are proud to share that we've been named a "Best Place to Work in Insurance". 

This award recognizes "employers for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work and help their companies grow".

Chalmers was chosen because of its strong company culture, its ability to seamlessly transition to remote operations during the early stages of Covid-19, and its growing team of highly motivated employees.

Chalmers offers programs, both onsite and virtual, that address wellness, coaching leadership training and work/life balance. Community service is also integral to Chalmers’ culture; the company engages in and encourages community service activities throughout Maine and New Hampshire.

"We pride ourselves on our employee-centric culture based on teamwork, collaboration, communication, and recognition. We take care of our co-workers above all else, and refer to our co-workers as family members,” says Dottie Chalmers Cutter, 4th Generation Owner and Vice President of Operations.

Best Places to Work in Insurance is an annual sponsored content feature presented by the Custom Publishing unit of Business Insurance and Best Companies Group that lists the agents, brokers, insurance companies and other providers with the highest levels of employee engagement and satisfaction. The first part is a questionnaire completed by the employer about company policies, practices and demographics. The second part is a confidential employee survey on engagement and satisfaction. 

We are truly grateful to our co-workers for making Chalmers such a special place to work. Interested in joining us? Please read about our open positions here.
