At Caesars Entertainment, we currently have seven different employee resource groups that we call Business Impact Groups (BIGs) primarily located in the Las Vegas area. A BIG is a peer group whose members and allies have common interests and goals which are aligned with Caesars Entertainment’s overall business strategy and its diversity and inclusion goals and objectives. The intent of these groups is to promote mentoring and a culture of diversity, innovation and continuous improvement in keeping with Caesars Entertainment’s Mission, Vision and Values and its Code of Commitment.
BIGs provide employees exposure to senior leadership across the organization as well as networking and engagement opportunities, enabling a diverse talent pipeline at Caesars Entertainment. The groups have improved the recruitment and retention of diverse employees and helped identify emerging issues important to specific diverse groups. For the company, BIGs provide numerous opportunities for business development, marketing support and innovation.
Each BIG has a Senior Leadership Sponsor and Executive VP Champion to help guide and facilitate group goals and leadership engagement. The head of Diversity and Inclusion works with the Legal Department and Human Resources to support the BIGs’ goals and reports on membership and satisfaction.
