CashStar Honored as a Best Place to Work in Maine for Fourth Consecutive Year

CashStar, the digital gifting company preferred by the world’s leading brands, today announced that, for the fourth consecutive year, it has been named as one of the Best Places to Work in Maine. Sponsored by The Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group, the awards program identifies, recognizes and honors the best places of employment in Maine, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Maine. The first part evaluated each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices and demographics (worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation). The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience (worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation). The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.

“CashStar is a terrific place to work first and foremost because of the talented, fun and dedicated team of people we have,” said Ben Kaplan, CashStar president and CEO. “We’ve built an exciting and innovative technology company in Portland providing digital gifting and mobile payments solutions for the world’s most recognizable brands. We’re honored that the survey results and feedback our team members provided to award organizers has enabled us to be named to this important list four years in a row.”

CashStar was recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Maine awards ceremony on October 8. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Maine program, visit
