MGM stands ahead of its competitors in the list as others that made it to the Forbes list are Wynn Resorts (207), Hyatt Hotels (144), Marriott International (124), Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts (78) and Hilton Hotels (65).
Chief diversity and corporate responsibility officer for MGM Resorts International Philly James said: “As a customer-focused company, we realize how critical employee engagement is to the success of our mission to provide a superior guest experience. Our workforce consists of amazingly talented and dedicated people who understand the value of treating our guests and each other with fundamental respect and dignity.”
“We invest in many initiatives to support development and advancement of our team members, such as our College Opportunity Program which allows eligible employees the opportunity to enroll in designated online degree or certificate programs at any Nevada System of Higher Education college or university, without having to worry about the cost. We greatly appreciate the honor this recognition represents,” he added.
The survey involved asking questions from employees about their roles and responsibilities and also their relationship with the employers. The study compiled the report based on the anonymous feedbacks which asked the employees to rate their companies on a scale of zero to ten. Their opinions and recommendations were also sought and formed a part of the survey results.
