Day’s Jewelers Named a Great Place to Work, Again
The retailer made the list of Best Places to Work in Maine for the seventh year in a row.
Day’s, an independent retailer with a total of eight stores in Maine and New Hampshire, announced this week that it made the list of “Best Places to Work in Maine” for the seventh year in a row.
Managed by independent research firm Best Companies Group, the Best Places to Work in Maine program was created in 2006 to identify and reward the state’s best employers and provide companies with employee feedback.
Surveys administered to both the employer and its employees determine which 100 companies make the list. All companies with a facility in Maine and at least 15 part-time or full-time employees are eligible to participate.
In addition to BCG, other organizations involved in the program include Maine’s State Chamber of Commerce, Department of Labor, and Department of Economic and Community Development.
One of the oldest independent jewelers in the country, Day’s Jewelers opened in 1914.
The Corey family has owned and operated it since 1988.
Jeff Corey, who owns and runs the company alongside wife Kathy Corey and brother Jim Corey, recalled how much his father, the late Robert Corey, liked working at Day’s when he started there as a young man.
“Dad always talked about how much fun they [employees] had,” Jeff said. “He was just a stock boy at first, but he always had fun at work.”
Today, Jeff’s son Joseph Corey is president of the company, which remains committed to creating a fun, rewarding workplace.
“Since 1914, Day’s Jewelers has held the important core principle of value. Not only does this family-owned business understand that the value of a piece of jewelry goes so much further than just the market price of the item, but they understand what it means to value their employees,” the jeweler said.
“With the opinions of the employees at the forefront of every decision made at Day’s, employees are able to feel understood and heard in their concerns and needs.”
The complete list of Maine’s Best Places to Work will appear in the Oct. 18 issue of MaineBiz.
