For the thirteenth consecutive year, MGM Resorts International has been recognized as a Top Company for Diversity by DiversityInc., one of the nation's leading sources on workplace diversity management.
The DiversityInc. annual survey, issued yearly since 2001, recognizes the nation's top companies for diversity and inclusion management. DiversityInc's extensive annual survey yields an empirically driven ranking based on recruitment, talent development, senior leadership commitment, supplier diversity and philanthropy. This year's competition was improved by new survey questions, increased emphasis on fairness over chasing numbers and more sophisticated analysis from DiversityInc.'s data scientists.
"For nearly two decades, we have worked to weave inclusion into the core of our very identity and our operations," said Phyllis A. James, the company's executive vice president and chief corporate responsibility officer. "Diversity touches all aspects of our business – from our workforce to our guests, to our business partners and our communities around the world. Leveraging our differences in a positive way makes us a more dynamic, engaged culture and brings competitive edge. The learning is never done, but we are grateful to be recognized for our work."
"Events of the past year have demonstrated that decisive ethical leadership is necessary to guide any organization to success," said Luke Visconti, founder and CEO of DiversityInc. "Successful leaders hold themselves accountable to be culturally competent, a skill that requires constant learning. DiversityInc. companies have a metrics-evidenced ability to treat people more fairly than other large companies. They also have a greater-than-average return for their shareholders."
