MGM Resorts has been named among 59 companies by The National Organization on Disability (NOD) as a 2019 NOD Leading Disability Employer. Now in its fourth year, the NOD Leading Disability Employer Seal recognizes companies that demonstrate exemplary employment practices for people with disabilities.
This annual recognition is designed to acknowledge the efforts of organizations that take a lead in disability hiring and encourage additional companies to tap into the many benefits of hiring talent with disabilities, including strong consumer preference for companies that employ individuals with disabilities and greater employee engagement across the workforce.
“MGM Resorts has a diverse hiring legacy that spans more than 20 years and we continue to Focus on What Matters with our workforce,” said Vice President of Community Engagement Tony Gladney. “As we enter National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October, we reflect on our accomplishments but also look toward opportunities to bring more awareness to the value of our disabled community. We are excited and proud to be recognized with this honor.”
NOD Chairman Governor Tom Ridge commented: “These winning organizations understand that by welcoming people with disabilities, they reap the benefits of a more productive and engaged workforce. The preeminent challenge before us is to ensure that people with disabilities enjoy full opportunity for employment, enterprise and earnings, and that employers know how to put their talents to work. We thank MGM Resorts for their leadership and for their commitment to hiring people with disabilities.”
