BetMGM announced that Great Place To Work and Fortune magazine have recognized the operator as one of this year’s Best Workplaces in New York. The leading sports betting and iGaming operator landed at No.16 and secured the spot on the prestigious list by surpassing rigorous benchmarks, establishing itself as one of the best workplaces among companies headquartered in the New York region. About 92% of employees surveyed said that BetMGM is a great place to work, 35% points higher than the average U.S. company.

“Landing on this prestigious list is a reflection of BetMGM’s ongoing commitment to fostering a great work environment. I am honored to lead an organization filled with dedicated and talented employees who have created a place where people feel welcomed and supported,” Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM, said.

To determine the Fortune Best Workplaces in New York List, Great Place To Work collected nearly 140,000 confidential survey responses from employees at eligible companies. Via the Trust Index Survey, employees shared honest feedback about their experience by responding to 60 statements about the employee experience and answering two open-ended questions. To be eligible for the list, companies must be Great Place To Work Certified and headquartered in the New York region.

Some other figures from the survey revealed that 96% of BetMGM employees were made to feel welcome when they joined the company and 94% of employees surveyed are proud to tell others that they work at BetMGM.

Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work, said.
