CashStar Named One of Best Places to Work in Maine

CashStar, the digital gifting and incentives company, today announced that it has been named one of the 2011 Best Places to Work in Maine by the Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM). Recognizing companies that have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments, the program marks the most recent step in a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence throughout all Maine companies.

One of Maine’s fastest growing companies, CashStar is the preferred partner of choice for leading retailers and restaurants looking to offer the most personal, convenient and secure digital gifting experience. Its culture reflects the spirit of the new Maine economy – a combination of hard work, deep family roots and a passion for innovation and entrepreneurship, where employees are empowered to make a difference. Composed of passionate technologists and digital professionals, the company prides itself on keeping pace with changes in the rapidly evolving digital commerce market to provide its clients with groundbreaking solutions that allow them to capitalize on the tremendous opportunity in digital gifting limited only by their imagination.

“From the beginning, I’ve worked my hardest to create an open, collaborative, high energy and innovation-led culture in order to attract and retain the finest talent at CashStar because, without them, we would not have been able to achieve such phenomenal success in such a short period of time,” said David Stone, co-founder and CEO of CashStar. “Since this award is primarily based on employee feedback, it is especially meaningful because it shows that our employees enjoy coming to work each day, where they are stimulated, challenged and part of a team that is transforming an entire industry.”

Created in 2006, this statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Maine, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The assessment process, administered by the Best Companies Group, evaluated each company’s employee policies and procedures as well as responses from the company’s employees. Partners endorsing the program include: Best Companies Group, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, Employment Times/ and Mainebiz.

CashStar will be honored at the Best Places to Work in Maine awards ceremony on Tuesday, October 11 at the Ramada Inn Conference Center in Lewiston, Maine and will be profiled in a special publication by Mainebiz. For more information on the program, visit
