LUCKY 7: SUGARHOUSE CASINO VOTED “BEST PLACE TO WORK”
Team Members vote Philly’s casino top honors seventh year in a row
PHILADELPHIA – Aug. 11, 2017 – For the seventh year in a row, SugarHouse Casino has been voted a “Best Place to Work” in the annual ranking published by the Philadelphia Business Journal. Philly’s casino was one of six companies to receive the award in the extra-large category (1,000 or more employees) thanks to voting by SugarHouse Team Members. Comprised of approximately 1,600 Team Members, the casino has been honored as a “Best Place to Work” each full year of operation since opening in September, 2010.
The top-ranking companies were revealed at yesterday’s Aug. 10 event at The Fillmore Philadelphia and appear in today’s edition of the Philadelphia Business Journal. The anonymous employee surveys recognize the top employers in the Greater Philadelphia area. Each company included in the 2017 “Best Places to Work” list reached a statistical benchmark to receive this special recognition.
“It’s because of our Team Members that we’ve been recognized as a “Best Place to Work” seven years in a row,” said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. “I’m thankful for their hard work each and every day – they’re the ones that make Philly’s casino a best place to be for our guests!”
The “Best Places to Work” award is given based on results of a survey taken by employees of each nominated business. Through the third-party survey administered by Quantum Workplace, employees score their place of employment on the following criteria: work-life balance; respect and caring for employees; recognition of accomplishments; feeling empowered; good teamwork and commitment to community.
Since the completion of the casino’s $164 million expansion in 2015, more than 500 people have become SugarHouse Team Members, serving in full-time positions that range from gaming and facilities to food and beverage. In addition to the “Best Places to Work” honor, SugarHouse has also been named a “Top Workplace” by Philly.com six consecutive times since 2010.
