MGM Resorts and Entain’s BetMGM US joint venture has been named as a ‘Best Place to Work in 2021’ by Glassdoor, which provides insights into jobs and organisations.

The placement comes in the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards, which aim to recognise employers that create great work cultures and is judged solely on elected input from company employees. 

BetMGM ranked in the top 20 and scored an overall rating of 4.8 out of 5 in the US “small and medium company” category, for companies with up to 1,000 employees. 

“It’s been a tremendous year of growth for BetMGM. We tripled our headcount to 350 team members and were able to grow the business, while infusing our new employees with the values that make BetMGM a special place to work,” said Adam Greenblatt, BetMGM CEO

“We credit our success in this area to the high-touch approach of our leadership group during these times of remote working, clarity of purpose throughout, and transparency with which we have shared our journey with the whole business. 

“We’re extremely proud to receive this recognition from Glassdoor. It’s a testament to the collaborative, high performing workplace we’ve been able to cultivate.”

The Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award is based on the feedback employees have voluntarily and anonymously shared on the Glassdoor platform. To determine the winners, Glassdoor evaluated all company reviews shared by employees over the past year.  

Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor CEO, added: “COVID-19 is in the driver’s seat and every employer has been impacted. This year’s winning employers have proven, according to employees, that even during extraordinary times, they’ll rise to the challenge to support their people. 

“A mission-driven culture, transparent leadership and career opportunities are always hallmarks of Best Places to Work winners. This year, we also see exceptional employers who have prioritized the health, safety and well-being of their employees. My congratulations go to all of this year’s outstanding Employees’ Choice Award winners.”
