Caesars Entertainment collects industry kudos
The honors are racking up for Caesars Entertainment
For the fourth time, Caesars has been named one of the most community-minded companies in the United States, thanks to the distinction given again in June by the Civic 50, an initiative that provides a standard for laudatory corporate citizenship, including how companies help improve the communities that surround them. Additionally, Caesars scored its third time being recognized as the leader in the consumer discretionary industry, which is the sector of the economy that produces nonessential goods and services.
“Caesars Entertainment has been, and will continue to be, dedicated to making a long-lasting positive societal impact on the communities in which we serve,” said Caesars’ executive vice president of public policy and corporate responsibility Jan Jones Blackhurst in a statement. “Our impact is only made possible by the dedication and care of each and every one of our employee volunteers and the leadership of our foundation. As they support others, we will continue to support them.”
In addition, digital magazine Computerworld included the company in its list of top 100 best places to work in the information technology (IT) field. Ranked 21st under the midsize organization category, Caesars was selected for its ability to challenge its IT team members to deploy cutting-edge technology — particularly to enhance guest services — while also providing substantial benefits and compensation.
“Over the last year, the IT team at Caesars Entertainment has led enterprise-wide digital transformation by implementing the premiere cloud platforms for finance, human resources, hospitality, marketing and customer relationship management,” said Les Ottolenghi, executive vice president and chief information officer for Caesars, in a statement.
And TripAdvisor, the travel/restaurant website, has bestowed multiple honors on Caesars Entertainment, including certificates of excellence, hall of fame wins and a Travelers’ Choice Award.
Earning entrance into the hall of fame requires being awarded a certificate of excellence for five straight years. Among the four Caesars inductees is the Eiffel Tower Experience at Paris Las Vegas, along with Caesars Windsor in Ontario, Harrah’s Metropolis in Illinois and Harrah’s New Orleans.
First-time Caesars certificate of excellence winners this year included Planet Hollywood, and repeat certificate winners from Nevada were Caesars Palace, The Cromwell, Nobu Hotel and Paris Las Vegas, and Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.
