MGM Resorts International is praised for being included on Forbes’ list of 750 of the world’s Best Employers for 2020. It is the only firm on the Las Vegas Strip to make the cut.
The casino operator came in at the 107th spot and followed up a placing of 18 out of 500 organizations in an earlier study carried out by Forbes to determine America’s best large employers earlier this year.
Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to conduct the study and compile their fourth-annual list of the world’s best employers.
Around 160,000 full-time and part-time workers from 58 countries working for businesses with operations in multiple regions and countries were surveyed. The final list is made up of 750 multinational and large corporations located in 45 countries.
Other US-based organizations included in the ‘Travel & Leisure’ category include Marriot International at the 28th spot, Royal Carribean Cruises at the 134th spot, the Hyatt Hotels at the 170th spot, and the Intercontinental Hotels Group which placed at the 219th spot.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious ranking from Forbes,” Jyoti Chopra, MGM Resorts chief people, inclusion and sustainability officer, said.
“We have the most talented, resilient and skilled employees in our industry and this recognition is a testament to their dedication and commitment to guest service, to caring for one another and for our company. This news marks a moment of great pride or the people of MGM,” he added.
The list was made up of 247 employers from the United States, 224 employers from Europe, and 208 employers from Asia and Oceania.
