On April 2, 2014, the U.S. Department of Defense (“DoD”), through its Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (“ESGR”) office, awarded MGM Resorts International (“MGM”) the Extraordinary Employer Support award during a special ceremony with Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval.

The award—the highest honor bestowed by the ESGR in Nevada—recognizes employers for “sustained support to the Reserve Component of the United States Armed Forces. “

The ESGR seeks to foster a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States--encouraging employment of Guardsmen and Reservists who bring integrity, global perspective and proven leadership to the civilian workforce—by cooperatively developing mutually beneficial initiatives with employers, recognizing outstanding employer support, creating public awareness of applicable laws and policies, resolving potential conflicts between employers and their service members, and acting as the employers’ principal advocate within the DoD.

Also individually, MGM’s Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Phyllis A. James, received the Patriot Award, which recognizes individual supervisors who provide their Guard- and Reserve-member employees outstanding support.

MGM offers a myriad of programs aimed at providing benefits to military veterans and members of the Guard and Reserve. The programs range from initiatives to provide employment opportunities to veterans as they transition to civilian life, special professional training and networking opportunities for veterans and members of the Guard or Reserve, and a Military Leave of Absence program providing eligible employees with supplemental pay and continued benefits for employees called in to combat during a declared military action.  Also, each Veterans Day MGM hosts dozens of Wounded Warriors for a complimentary weekend of accommodations, recreation, and entertainment at an MGM property.
