People Planet Play: A New Name for our Longstanding Commitment

by Margaret George

People, Planet, Play is Caesars Entertainment’s commitment to our communities, environmental excellence and Responsible Gaming. It also closely aligns with our mission to inspire grownups to have fun. It’s a new expression for how we connect our Code of Commitment, Citizenship programs and internal brands like CodeGreen together, creating a consistent and recognizable approach for our team members, stakeholders and guests. It also supports some specific United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that Caesars is working towards. While People, Planet, Play is new, our commitments are longstanding and strong – in fact, we were recently recognized by Civic 50 as one of the most community-minded companies in the nation.

So what’s it all about? Keep reading to learn how familiar Caesars Entertainment initiatives fit into People, Planet, Play.

People: Supporting the wellbeing of our employees, guests and local communities.

Caesars Entertainment and our properties around the country and the world are successful because of our team members. Our value of Caring Culture means we place great importance on the health and wellbeing of our employees. We go beyond traditional benefits programs to provide the best options to ensure that team members maintain a happy, healthy lifestyle through programs like Wellness Rewards. Diversity and safety are also top priorities.

In a similar vein, our Caring Culture means that we take an active role to improve lives in our communities. Team members volunteer through our HERO program, and our Foundation supports nonprofits in local communities and beyond with grants.

Planet: Caring for our environment to preserve the quality of life on Earth.

Caesars team members were the early drivers of environmental sustainability at Caesars, leading to the creation of CodeGreen, which focuses on minimizing core environmental impacts. Our CodeGreen Challenge celebrates these efforts each year. We also work beyond the four walls of our gaming-entertainment properties – learn more about how we work with our supply chain to understand climate impacts.

One of the best benefits of our Planet initiatives is that we’re taking care of environmental sustainability behind the scenes so our guests can relax and have fun!

Play: Creating memorable experiences for our guests and leading Responsible Gaming practices in the industry.

Our mission is inspiring grown-ups to play, and the Play pillar of People Planet Play is all about memorable experiences. Our award-winning Total Rewards program rewards guests for their loyalty. Through our Responsible Meetings and Events Certification, the Caesars Meetings team integrates environmental practices into event design and management. Additionally, our Meetings for Good offering helps clients contribute to society at our meeting venue locations through partnerships with local nonprofits.

Sustainability is integrated into all meetings and events held at Caesars Entertainment locations.

Caesars was the first in our industry to develop Responsible Gaming guidelines more than 25 years ago, and it remains a top priority. Our program comprises research, innovative technology and practical tools and comprehensive training for all staff.

So that’s People, Planet, Play – why and how we take care of our guests, team members, communities and environment. Our CEO, Mark Frissora, introduced People, Planet, Play at a Town Hall in May – and he also shared this video.  You’ll hear more about it in August when we launch our next Citizenship Report, which will detail everything we’ve accomplished last year in the areas of People, Planet, Play. Stay tuned!
