Caesars Entertainment Nears Gender Pay Equity
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Caesars Entertainment reports that 99% of women at the company’s corporate headquarters and 98% of women who work in non-union roles at the company’s domestic properties had no meaningful differences in average pay when compared to men in the same positions.
Results released as part of Caesars Entertainment’s “Gender Equity Initiative” launched in 2017, in partnership with Billie Jean King and the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative (BJKLI)
Caesars Commits to Reach 100% Pay Equity

 

Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR), the world’s most diversified gaming and entertainment company, today announced that the company found no meaningful differences in the average pay of men and women in almost all jobs. Together with Billie Jean King, sports icon and equal rights champion, Caesars Entertainment committed to work to close the gap and achieve 100% parity in pay for men and women.

Caesars reviewed 2016 pay data for approximately 32,200 non-union employees from corporate headquarters and 40 properties. Ninety nine percent of women at the company’s corporate headquarters and 98% of women at the company’s 40 properties are in jobs with no meaningful differences between the average pay of men and women, after accounting for neutral factors.  A follow-up study using 2018 pay data shows that Caesars is already moving toward 100 percent pay equity in all jobs.  Union employees were not included in the study because Caesars is obligated to pay unionized workers established compensation rates under the terms set forth in collective bargaining agreements with the union that dictate the wages paid to all union members.

“The numbers from our internal study confirm that Caesars Entertainment is a progressive workplace that values all employees and promotes an open and inclusive culture,” said Mark Frissora, President and Chief Executive Officer. “While I’m extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished, there is still more work to be done, and I remain committed to taking the necessary steps to ensure that we reach 100% pay equity.”

“On the 50th anniversary of the ‘open era’ in tennis when the Grand Slam tournaments first allowed all players the opportunity to make a living by playing tennis, I could not be prouder to be joined at the US Open by corporate leaders from Caesars Entertainment who are committed to creating equal and inclusive workplaces,” said Billie Jean King. “As a long-time champion of equal pay for equal work, seeing more companies, like Caesars Entertainment, joining in the movement is strong proof that things are improving and progressing.”

The Company has pledged to conduct a review of pay equity on a regular basis. This reflects the Company’s greater commitment to ensure equity for all employees and its progress toward the goal to reach 100% pay equity across all levels.

In 2017 Caesars Entertainment partnered with equal rights champion Billie Jean King and her organization, the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative (BJKLI) to launch the Gender Equity Initiative – a program created to increase representation of women in leadership roles and above at Caesars Entertainment by 2025, and also to enhance equal representation, development, treatment and pay of all employees. Currently, Caesars Entertainment is well on its way to meeting its gender equality goal, with women in the company’s U.S. markets holding 43% of manager and above roles at the company.

Oneida Indian Nation Announces Multi-Million Dollar Expansion at YBR Casino to Create New Entertainment Experience with Social Games
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Located in Chittenango Plaza, the expansion includes a new entertainment wing featuring a six-lane luxury Brunswick Bowling center, two Topgolf Swing Suite bays, pool tables, shuffle board, a stylish full-service bar, and new dining options.  The renovation project also includes a redesign of the casino’s exterior.

The Oneida Indian Nation announced the third phase of construction at its YBR Casino, located in the Village of Chittenango. The renovation will expand upon the casino’s extensive gaming options with a new state-of-the-art entertainment wing, slated to open in early February. It will feature a six-lane luxury Brunswick Bowling center, two high-tech Topgolf Swing Suite bays, and other social games. The new section will also feature a new full-service bar and dining, more than ten television screens and dedicated sports-betting stations. The renovation will also include an exterior redesign that stylishly combines the aesthetics of Central New York’s industrial history with a modern 21st-century look.

YBR Casino’s expanded amenities include partnerships with Topgolf Swing Suite and Brunswick Bowling, two leading national brands in the recreational gaming:

TOPGOLF SWING SUITE

Topgolf Swing Suite is the country’s most popular provider of interactive group-golfing venues, delivering fun for all ages where golfers and non-golfers alike can come together for playful competition. Both of the bays at the YBR Topgolf Swing Suite will feature a variety of HDTVs, comfortable lounge seating, golf and non-golf games, including Zombie Dodgeball, Baseball Pitching, Soccer, Hockey and more.

BRUNSWICK BOWLING

Brunswick Bowling, a leader in the bowling industry for over 125 years that specializes in creating modern, full-service bowling centers around the world, will construct a six-lane center featuring top-of-the-line equipment designed to create an engaging experience for guests of all ages and skill levels.

ADDITIONAL SOCIAL GAMES AND NEW DINING

New entertainment amenities at YBR Casino include the addition of pool tables and shuffle boards—popular social games with a new generation of guests.

YBR Casino also recently launched new weekly live esports tournaments.  Every Wednesday, the tournaments bring egamers to The Lounge with Caesars Sports at YBR Casino to compete for weekly cash prizes, Free Play and more.

BURGERS OF MADISON COUNTY

YBR Casino opened the newest location of Burgers of Madison County, the extremely popular restaurant from Point Place Casino, with a menu of delicious burgers, milkshakes and more.

“With the latest renovations to our gaming floor, the addition of The Lounge with Caesars Sports and this next phase of expansions, YBR will be completely transformed into a multi-entertainment venue unlike anything else in the area,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “This new phase of renovations at YBR is geared to exceed guest expectations, and is a reflection of the Oneida Indian Nation’s ongoing commitment to reinvesting in Central New York. By expanding our offerings, we will be creating new jobs and helping to revitalize the region as a premier tourist destination.”

This expansion builds on the Oneida Indian Nation’s collaborations with national brands in the gaming and entertainment fields. Earlier this year, the Oneida Indian Nation partnered with Caesars Entertainment to develop The Lounge with Caesars Sports, state-of-the-art sports-betting venues with VIP amenities, luxury seating and award-winning menus. YBR Casino is now home to New York State’s largest sports book and has proven to be a winner with new and loyal casino guests alike.

“The expansion of entertainment options at YBR Casino and the reputation the Oneida Indian Nation has for offering the best amenities for guests is consistent with the fun, social experiences guests know and expect from Topgolf,” said Peter Kratsios, Director of Business Development from Topgolf Swing Suite.  “More than half of the guests who enjoy Topgolf have never touched a golf club in their life, so we are confident the addition of Topgolf Swing Suites will attract new guests, golfers and non-golfers, to the property.”

“We’re excited about our partnership with the Oneida Indian Nation and bringing new entertainment options to YBR Casino,” said Jason Dean, Director of New Business Development for Brunswick Bowling Products. “When experienced in an atmosphere like YBR Casino, we know that Brunswick Bowling will be the perfect complement to the YBR Casino experience.”
