On August 24, Sands was officially named to Forbes’ second annual list of America’s Best-in-State Employers. Based on an independent survey of more than 80,000 workers, the list recognizes the top employers of more than 500 people within their U.S. operations.
“Our company has built an enduring reputation as a global hospitality and business leader, due in large part to the dedication of our Team Members and leadership team. Our inclusion on the Best-in-State Employers list reinforces and validates that that reputation is well-earned,” said Sheldon G. Adelson, Sands chairman and chief executive officer. “We set the standard for delivering an exceptional guest experience, maintaining consistently solid financial operations and being a responsible corporate citizenship in our communities, making them better places to work and live.”
“We pride ourselves in providing an exceptional work environment, competitive compensation and unmatched benefits programs for our Team Members. During the coronavirus pandemic, the health and safety of our Team Members has been our number one priority. We’ve made testing widely available for our Team Members and their families and have put in place strong safety protocols across our Las Vegas properties. Additionally, while we have seen dramatic decreases in our business levels, we have continued to provide pay and benefits to our Team Members from the moment the pandemic began – something we believe is unequaled in our industry,” concluded Mr. Adelson.
Eighty thousand U.S. workers were surveyed to compile the list, through a series of online panels and providing a representative sample of the country’s workforce. The Best-in-State Employers designation reinforces Sands’ reputation as a high-quality employer, dedicated to our People, the Communities we call home and the Planet we all share.
