Top Workplace for Sixth Straight Year
Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Named Top Workplace for Sixth Straight Year
Schenectady, NY (April 24, 2023) – Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady is proud to announce that it has once again been named a Top Workplace by the Times Union, the Capital Region’s paper of record. The Top Workplace recognition is based entirely on results from a survey provided to employees and their opinions related to their work environment. This is the sixth year in a row that Rivers has received this distinguished award.
“Rivers is an exciting, diverse, and fun place to work and our team members work extremely hard each and every day to provide our guests with the best entertainment experience possible,” said Laura Primiano, Vice President of Hospitality at Rivers Casino. “We’re all extremely proud to receive this distinctive recognition for the sixth year in a row.”
Rivers Casino received the honor on April 18th at the Times Union’s Top Workplaces event held at the Albany Capital Center in downtown Albany, NY. Rivers team members were on hand to accept the award and enjoy an evening with other Top Workplace winners from across the Capital Region.
“At Rivers it’s more than just a job, and we always focus on the ongoing professional development and personal growth of the team so they can achieve their goals,” said Linda Waters, Vice President of Human Resources at Rivers Casino. “This award is truly a celebration of our team members who not only deliver outstanding service to our guests, they give back to the community,”
Rivers Casino currently employs more than 850 team members, and those numbers continue to grow. The company provides an exceptional benefits package including health insurance, paid time-off, tuition reimbursement, and immediate vesting in a 401(k) retirement plan.
Much of what Rivers Casino does to enhance the workplace is centered around the people who work at the casino and enhancing their lives as much as possible. Rivers Casino looks to its team members to help identify charitable organizations and causes to support throughout the Capital Region. Allowing team members to choose causes they are personally connected to elevates their passion and level of commitment.
The Rivers Casino & Resort team continues to give back to the community in unprecedented ways. In 2022 alone, Rivers gave over $238,000 in goods, services, and cash donations to over 50 charitable and community organizations, along with its team members providing over 1,000 hours of volunteer service.
This generosity included fighting hunger with food donations to essential workers, homeless shelters, and other charitable organizations, including over 300 turkeys for the holidays, along with providing essential items to homeless youths through its Giving Tree program. Rivers also held monthly Make a Difference fundraisers for 12 very special organizations and, along with guests, raised thousands of dollars during its PINKtober campaign to help in the fight against breast cancer.
