(Aug. 5, 2015) Casino Arizona, an enterprise of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC), has been named a bronze winner for "Best Place to Work" in the Best in Biz Awards 2015 International competition. To date, the annual platform remains the only independent business awards program judged by press and industry analysts. "It's a huge honor to have Casino Arizona recognized for its workplace culture, said Ramon Martinez, director of public relations for Casino Arizona. "We owe much of our success to our employees, so we're thrilled our organization has been acknowledged as one of the leading venues for employment."
This year, more than 250 companies representing more than 30 countries submitted their businesses in various categories. Recipients in the "Best Place to Work" division were required to demonstrate employee satisfaction and a collection of employee well-being programs such as mentoring, flexible work arrangements, financial and lifestyle perks. Winners were then given scores and determined by a judging panel of 26.
The judges—with backgrounds across financial, technology and business sectors –hailed from 19 different countries. Publications represented included Gamer's Intuition, Vancouver Sun, Irish Independent and Ventures Africa. "Judging Best in Biz Awards is a real pleasure, year after year," said Barrie Pepper, a BBC Radio journalist who was judging his third Best in Biz Awards competition. "How often do we get to say out loud and even more often just think to ourselves: "This looks like a good place to work. Most of this year's Best Place to Work entries fell into that category. These are some really great workplaces and some very lucky folk working in them," he said.
An innovator in the gaming industry, Casino Arizona has received tremendous praise for its wide range of entertainment options and thriving work environment since opening in 1998. The venue regularly commends its staff with several employee recognition programs as well as the Pathways to Success program.
