Connecting to our #Colleagues
At Caesars Entertainment we embrace what makes us unique to inspire innovation and win together. We hire for diversity, compensate fairly and reward positive contribution and service. Our training programs are designed for all and our working environments are positive and open. With tens of thousands of employees across our organization, we try to create a workplace where we can collectively work, as one big team, toward one big ambition to create memorable experiences for our guests by serving them with passion.
Women do well at Caesars
We have always celebrated women at Caesars and our open and gender-balanced culture is demonstrated by the fact that 55% of our employees and 42% of our managers are women. We believe that women are good for business, and that a culture in which women (and men) can progress on merit enables us to best serve our guests and society in general. It’s also the right way to do business.
A Diverse Workplace
It’s not only gender that demonstrates our commitment to equality. We maintain an inclusive workforce, with 52% of our employees from minority groups. In 2016, for the 9th consecutive year, we earned a perfect rating from the Human Rights Campaign’s annual Corporate Equality Index. This Index scores businesses based on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workplace policies and public engagement on LGBT rights issues.
Citizenship Rewards Program
Another way we promote an inclusive and diverse workforce is by assisting employees in their aspiration to become naturalized citizens of the United States. In 2015, we were honored to receive an invitation to a White House Business Leaders Roundtable on New Americans to hear directly from government officials on initiatives being advanced by the White House Task Force on this topic and participate in discussions about how we can take positive action. Karlos LaSane, our Regional Vice President for Government Relations, represented Caesars and confirmed our support for building welcoming communities and providing citizenship.
For many years, we have continued to support a variety of non-profits and coalitions such as the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Mi Familia Vota, the National Immigration Forum, and the Human Rights Campaign for Community-Based Naturalization workshops benefiting eligible residents in southern Nevada and southern California at several of our properties. Also, we have supported employees by providing education programs and assistance with the application costs for naturalization. In 2015, we supported more than 40 employees in attaining U.S. citizenship and enabling them to play a full role in our community life. To date, we have helped more than 320 employees become U.S. citizens.
CAESARS CITIZENSHIP BLOG SPOTLIGHT
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” These are the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose legacy Caesars Entertainment and its affiliates celebrated by participating in the 2016 King Week Festivities in Las Vegas.
Dr. King’s question is one we ask ourselves a lot at Caesars. How can we run a sustainable business that has a positive social impact in the communities where we work, visit and play? One way we do that is by being active in community efforts such as King Week, where we honor civil rights heroes like Dr. King, reminding us why it’s critical to engage with our people and our local communities.
