- EFN Staff | February 26, 2016
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) has been honoured with the distinctive title of 2016 “Best Casinos to Work for” in North America by the Casino Journal. SIGA (Corporate and Casinos) was fourth on a list of the top five casino organizations that competed from across North America, and it was the only Canadian casino organization that was recognized.
“SIGA is very proud of this accomplishment. Since starting in the 1990’s, we have grown SIGA into an employee compliment of about 1,900 people, making SIGA the largest First Nations employer in Canada –over 1,300 of our employees identify as First Nations,” President and CEO Zane Hansen said. “We continue to improve as an organization, and we are proud of our employees; they are contributing on a grand scale to the communities where they live, work and play.”
Participation in this program required SIGA’s employees to go through an assessment process. The process included surveying their employees, as well as taking an inventory of company benefits, policies and offerings. As part of the process, SIGA received a summarized analysis of the engagement and satisfaction of employees at SIGA. This summarized analysis is rich with information that identifies what areas SIGA is doing well in and what areas there are opportunities for improvement.
“We are very proud of our employees at our casinos and corporate office. SIGA is always exploring new ways to develop and enhance our workplace,” said Shauna Bear, V.P. Human Resources. “We actively look for and value feedback from our employees. It helps us to improve the working environment, and we strive to provide the resources needed to encourage their professional success. We work hard at ensuring our workplace is the best so that we can attract and retain top talent to better serve our customers.”
The Best Casinos to Work for was unveiled and profiled in a supplement of Casino Journal, published in January 2016.
