BATTLE CREEK, MI – FireKeepers Casino Hotel has again been recognized as part of Forbes’ annual lists of Best Employers by State. Forbes and Statista selected America’s Best-in-State Employers based on an independent survey of approximately 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 500 people in their U.S. operations. The surveys were administered using a series of online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce. Direct and indirect employee recommendations were evaluated on a state level.
“To receive this acknowledgment after what has been a very trying time for all employers, truly speaks to FireKeepers’ dedication to creating a great work culture for our team members,” said Frank Tecumseh, VP of Human Resources for FireKeepers. “Our vision is to be the employer of choice, not only in Michigan, but also throughout the gaming industry.”
Survey respondents were asked to rate their employers on a variety of criteria, including safety of work environment, competitiveness of compensation, opportunities for advancement and openness to telecommuting. Statista then asked respondents how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others, and to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.
“We are thrilled to once again be honored with awards from several amazing organizations and publications,” said Kathy George, CEO of FireKeepers. “We strive to ensure that every Team Member feels safe, and has a rewarding work day experience, while providing the same welcoming and engaging experience for our guests.”
