The renowned consultancy agency, The Great Place to Work Institute, concerned with workplace assessment and enhancement, selected Poker Stars, operating in full compliance with British gambling laws as one of UK’s Best Workplaces.
The Institute carries out annual surveys among employees of around 5,500 companies around the world with some 10 million employees. Organizations are ranked and grouped by country based on workplace respect, fairness, pride, credibility and camaraderie.
One of the best online poker sites in United Kingdom and worldwide, Poker Stars, is employing around 1,200 people around the worlds, half of which is in UK offices in London and on the Isle of Man.
United Kingdom gambling news reports that the best features, which make Poker Stars stand out, include employee benefits and rewards, great professional development opportunities and a highly diversified workforce.
Director of HR at Poker Stars, Lynn Hunter, had the following comments: “As a fast-growing company, attracting and retaining talented people is critical to our business, so we are dedicated to ensuring our employees are well supported, nurtured and rewarded.”
He went on to add: “This is the first time we’ve participated in the Great Place to Work survey, so it’s especially gratifying to know that our efforts are contributing to the success of our business, and that employees consider Poker Stars to be a Great Place to Work.”
CEO at Great Place to Work, Tom O’Byrne, also commented the results: “This has been a good year for the Best Workplaces list. The standard of entry has been particularly high so getting a place on the list is a significant achievement.”
He added: “We assess and select the best workplaces by examining how management creates trust in the workplace through various policies, practices and initiatives. But the real measure of whether an organization is a great place to work is whether employees say it is.”
