RIVERS CASINO NAMED A “HEALTHIEST EMPLOYER” IN WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA

Pittsburgh Business Times Honors Rivers for Employee Health Initiatives 

PITTSBURGH — June 10, 2016 — Rivers Casino has been named a “Healthiest Employer” by the Pittsburgh Business Times on the publication’s annual list. The “Healthiest Employer” program features workplaces of all sizes that strive for excellence and a positive impact on employee lifestyle by providing health-focused benefits and initiatives to team members.

Workplaces in the running to be named a “Healthiest Employer” are assessed by criteria including general demographics, culture and leadership commitment, strategic planning, marketing and communications, programming, reporting and more. Rivers, among other local businesses, was honored at a special event held at the Omni William Penn Hotel yesterday, June 9.

“Healthy employees make for a progressive workplace,” said Craig Clark, general manager of Rivers Casino. “At Rivers, we aim to help Team Members feel their best in order to provide the best service to our guests.”

Among Rivers’ health-focused initiatives include participation in the Healthy Wage Challenge. Rivers Casino Team Members and their friends and families competed in a friendly weight-loss initiative for a chance to win cash prizes. More than 130 participants took part in the challenge and lost a collective weight of more than 1,400 pounds.

Rivers Casino has also been voted by its employees a “Top Workplace” in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, as well as a “Best Place to Work” in the Pittsburgh Business Times.
