Seminole Hard Rock Wins Casino Industry’s Employer of Choice Award For Fourth Consecutive Year
Casino Gaming Executive Satisfaction Survey results for 2018 are in and, in competition formed by 34 casino operators and companies, Seminole Hard Rock has taken the title of Employer of Choice, which is this establishment’s fourth accolade in a row!
The survey, produced by Bristol Associates and Spectrum Gaming Group, was conducted in the period of August to October last year. According to it…
…24.83% of respondents included Seminole Hard Rock among their top three employers in the gaming industry. Not only did the company manage to snap up this award for the fourth consecutive time, they even got 5% more votes than in 2017.
Reliability Reaps Trust
1,363 participants were asked to take part in an online survey, which is a fair increase from a little over 1,000 respondents a year prior. This was the eighteenth Annual Casino Gaming Executive Survey.
Hard Rock International, acquired by the Seminole Tribe of Florida in 2007 and sharing offices with Seminole Gaming’s headquarters, released a public statement saying that the four-year winning streak is “strong evidence of a positive workplace reputation and quality work environment”…
…and to further bolster that claim, they remind that Hard Rock was also named among America’s Best Employers and America’s Best Employers for Women by Forbes Magazine.
Listen to the People
Commenting on this fine success…
…were CEO and Chairman, Jim Allen, and Managing Director of Spectrum Group, Michael Pollock.
“It means a lot to be recognized by so many gaming industry executives as their Employer of Choice We are extremely pleased to receive this recognition for Seminole Hard Rock.”
Pollock congratulated the winners and added:
“To become a leader among such leaders requires an added focus on retaining and motivating talent. By definition, to become such a leader, you have to listen to your people, and respond to their needs and aspirations.”
How the Survey is Made
Conducted online, the Casino Gaming Executive Satisfaction Survey represents a sampling of casino and gaming executives across North America and survey respondents…
…that are “diverse in terms of geography, executive responsibilities, years of experience and other meaningful criteria.” Before the participants are selected, the designers of the survey need to ensure that they have worked in the casino industry and that they are only surveyed once.
Hard Rock Goes to Cincinnati
More good news for this seminal gambling operator as the purchase of JACK Cincinnati Casino is complete…
…which means that when the transaction is closed, the joint project with VICI Properties will be renamed to Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati.
Jim Allen is cherishing the brand’s return to Ohio:
“And now, we look forward to introducing our unique brand of casino entertainment to Cincinnati. On behalf of the 40,000 Hard Rock team members worldwide, I am pleased to welcome the more than 1,000 JACK Cincinnati employees into the Hard Rock family.”
With another property due to open this fall – Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Sacramento – this is shaping up to be one very busy year for the company.
