IGT has earned another ESG honor as it was named as a Top Employer in the US and Canada by the Top Employers Institute.
Top Employer is a global firm that recognizes employers for their people practices and how they treat and develop their employees.
The North American unit of IGT follows in the footsteps of its Italian unit that also achieved Top Employer status earlier in the year.
As part of the process to become certified, IGT underwent a thorough application process answering over 225 questions relating to its human resources and people strategy. IGT included details about its wider sustainability efforts as well as its DEI and ethical initiatives to its process.
“Earning the Top Employer distinction in the US, Canada and Italy is a significant achievement for IGT, as more than 70% of the Company’s workforce resides in those three countries,” said Dorothy Costa, IGT Senior Vice President of People & Transformation.
“The Top Employers Institute provides meaningful benchmarking data that will help IGT drive continuous improvement and provide a working environment where professional growth, inclusion and communication are paramount.”
IGT was also recently recognized for its DEI efforts in the newest All-In Diversity Project All-Index. It was described as a “driving factor” in improving DEI across the gaming industry throughout the last four years since the report was first released.
IGT created its Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2018 and has implemented several new policies to ensure a more inclusive hiring process, as well as promoting employee-led groups and training staff members on DEI best practices.
