Caesars Entertainment Ranks 104th On America’s Most Responsible Companies List

Article by : Helen Feb 25, 2021

Newsweek, in cooperation with Statista, has recently released its second annual America’s Most Responsible Companies 2021 list. Newsweek believes that it’s important to highlight companies that have been supporting the communities they operate in during these difficult times. The list includes 399 corporations that vary by size and industry.

US gambling fans may be happy to hear that Caesars Entertainment was determined to be one of the most responsible US companies as well. What is interesting is that it’s the only gambling company included in the list, so the other gambling operators and casino software suppliers have room for improvement now. Caesars Entertainment was highlighted for its willingness and readiness to help the country deal with its social and environmental issues. After the former Caesars had been merged with Eldorado Resorts, the newly-formed company put much attention on the community’s issues, which led to the company being included in the top 399.

The new Caesars Entertainment Corporation has been regularly dedicating a decent part of its financial resources to dealing with troubles related to climate change and supporting other environment-protecting programs. Moreover, the company is also known for following workplace diversity standards. The internal company’s data indicates that half of its staff is comprised of women, and slightly less than 50% of the leadership positions are also held by females. Racial norms are also followed by Caesars, with “employees of color” standing at more than 60% of its global workforce.

Caesars Entertainment ranks 104th, which is 42 ranks higher compared to the previous year. The company’s total score is 79.7 out of 100. This is an average score of the environmental score of 78.1, social score of 83.8, and corporate governance score of 77.3. It is also worth mentioning that none of the listed companies got the highest score. Thus, HP ranks first with a total score of 93.2, which seems to be not that much higher than the Caesars’ result. Caesars is also the leader in the Entertainment, Leisure and Dining subcategory, leaving such world-famous companies like Walt Disney and McDonald’s behind. Chief Executive Officer of Caesars Entertainment Tom Reeg is proud of all Caesars Team Members for their hard work, commitment, and generosity.

We often talk about the power our incredible Team Members have to create guest experiences that drive our lasting successes at Caesars Entertainment. That same power is amplified in their commitment not just to guests, partners, and the environment, but to each other and to the communities in which we live and work.

Newsweek’s “America’s Most Responsible Companies 2021” list is not the only prestigious rating where Caesars is mentioned. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, which rates American companies on how well they implement and adhere to policies related to lesbian, bisexual, gay, and transgender employees, consumers, and investors, has recently published its annual Corporate Equality Index that also considers Caesars Entertainment to be one of the winners. Caesars is one of 767 corporations that have met all the required criteria to get a 100% rating and a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” 2021 Award. While this is the 14th consecutive year for Caesars being included in the Corporate Equality Index, Wynn Resorts managed to score only 90, and Las Vegas Sands didn’t even reach 85.
