Unfortunately, also according to Gallup, only 30% of employees are engaged. During the economic downturn, employers had the upper hand when it came to dealing with employees because employees were so fearful of losing their jobs. Today, with unemployment low and competition in gaming greater than ever, and with still more casinos on the way, engaging your people has become more important than ever to meet your financial goals. This webinar will give you multiple ways to increase your team’s engagement and the performance and results that flow out of increased engagement. Webinar Presenter – Dave Newton Your webinar presenter, Dave Newton, has a track record of implementing innovative and successful leadership and HR practices. Dave was opening VPHR of the Venetian and was responsible for creating the strategic HR plan for that property. The goal was to have great service and remain union-free, despite a powerful local union that had organized every other property on the Las Vegas Strip. Dave’s mission was to create an exceptional work environment that produced the highest quality service and convinced employees that they didn’t need a union. To achieve this, Dave and the Venetian team implemented a number of innovative practices that created a unique culture where employees were highly valued. Guest service was excellent, the staff remained non-union, and the property won two Best Places to Work Awards. Shortly after opening, the Venetian (despite being one of the smaller companies competing) was chosen to receive one of two available Macau gaming licenses, and it has since grown into the Sands Corporation, one of the most successful gaming companies in the world. For the past 10 years Dave has been a Partner with Hospitality Resources, a company specializing in employee surveys and assessments, so he has gotten extensive insight into what engages employees and what disengages them. In addition, Dave has operations experience, including being a hotel general manager, so he understands how HR practices can support and improve operations. Dave has a B.S. from Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations and an M.B.A. from Pace University in New York.
