Wind Creek Casino Voted Best to Work For
January 19, 2016
Happy employees mean happy guests; but what does it take to ensure your
employees are happy? In the fast paced and competitive casino industry, it can
be difficult to maintain a successful company while upholding guest and employee
satisfaction, but thanks to our outstanding team members, Wind Creek Hospitality
(WCH) has managed to do just that.
Casino Journal, an independent global information source for gaming, and Best
Companies Group (BCG), a company whose goal is to establish programs that
"distinguish companies who demonstrate and are superior in workplace excellence"
teamed up and created the Best Casinos to Work For 2016 Contest. The contest
gave casino employees across North America an opportunity to voice their opinion
about their workplace by confidentially completing surveys and questionnaires
that consisted of 8 core focus areas. The results were then tallied in a point
system in order to recognize the highest ranking contenders. The top ranked
companies were found to have incorporated fun into the workplace, emphasized
work-life balance and support in employee life outside of the office.
WCH is a values-based organization with over 2,000 employees. Employees are
recognized with quarterly incentive compensation and recognition programs such
as the Best of the Best Awards and Wind Creek Cash. Not only does the WCH place
high emphasis on employee recognition, they also stress the importance of
employee health. In addition to a company-wide wellness program, each property
has a wellness center with an on-site trainer. WCH Vice-President of Human
Resources, Catherine Timmons, had this to say about her company's ranking "I am
thrilled that our employees feel so positive about working at Wind Creek
Hospitality! Being recognized as "One of the Best Casinos to Work for in 2016"
is a tremendous honor, especially since it was our own employees who provided
the feedback. A big thank you to all of our employees who work hard every day to
make WCH a great place to work."
WCH was not the only Indian gaming corporation to be recognized in the contest;
in fact, the top 5 ranking casinos were all involved in tribal gaming, which
speaks volumes about Indian gaming's focus on community and employment.
