At Tom's of Maine, we offer our own unique benefits to help members of our community balance their wellness and community interests with their working life. (We offer traditional benefits, too!) Learn more about what it's like to be on our team in our Goodness Report.

Volunteer time

All Tom's of Maine employees are strongly encouraged to use 5% of their paid work time to volunteer in the community.

Employee wellness program

Wellness Centers.

The Tom's of Maine Wellness Centers, located in both Kennebunk and Sanford, Maine, provide employees with a place to work out and develop other aspects of a holistic fitness and wellness program. Our Wellness Leader acts as a personal trainer and leads fitness classes in core conditioning and stretching. Employees can take advantage of monthly sessions on everything from proper nutrition to self-defense. Also offered to employees are weekly yoga sessions and monthly on-site massages for nominal fees.

Health and wellness benefit.

Each employee working outside of our Maine offices receives a $300 benefit per year to use towards personal wellness. Our employees have used this benefit for fitness classes, yoga instruction, new running shoes, or a day at a spa, to name a few. There is an additional $100 available for those employees who wish to use the benefit on fitness such as a gym membership or an exercise class.

Parenting leave

We believe that the birth or adoption of a new child calls for some time away from work. This benefit allows for up to four weeks of additional paid time off for new mothers (beyond their short-term disability leave) or four weeks of paid time off for new fathers of children from birth up to age two. This leave can be taken all at once or intermittently.

Casual dress

Tom's offers a dress casual environment, which helps make the workplace a comfortable place for all!

Summer hours

Because most employees live in Maine, where the summers are spectacular but short, Tom's of Maine celebrates with summer hours! This means that hours for most full-time Tom's of Maine employees are adjusted from Memorial Day to Labor Day to allow for longer weekends. (This schedule may vary slightly.) Hour changes are subject to each work area's different needs and specifications.

Hybrid car purchase

Tom's of Maine supports innovative technologies and processes that increase fuel efficiency and lower emissions. For this reason, we provide employees with a $4000 benefit when they purchase a new hybrid vehicle.
