MGM Resorts Named One of America's Best Employers for New Graduates

Forbes, in partnership with the research firm Statista, compiled the inaugural list by independently surveying employees working for companies with at least 1,000 people within the U.S. The sample size included 10,000 Americans with less than 10 years of professional experience.

The survey measured participants' feelings about their employers in a variety of categories, including working conditions, salary and whether they would recommend their employer to others

"Attracting and retaining top talent is very important to us at MGM Resorts International," said the company's Human Resources Officer and Senior Vice President, Michelle DiTondo. "We feel strongly that our culture and employee experience are attractive to candidates at all stages of their career. Being recognized on the Forbes' New Graduate list is especially rewarding because it means we are establishing our reputation and brand in a positive way with potential future leaders in our company."

Research indicates that employees want to work for – and buy from – socially responsible companies 1. In fact, more than 9 in 10 millennials would switch brands to one associated with a cause, according to Haas School of Business at University of California, Berkeley 2.

As an industry leader in Corporate Social Responsibility, MGM Resorts is focused on what matters: people, community and our planet. We operate today with a view toward tomorrow, striving to ensure that we integrate into the very fabric of the community, developing places and spaces that beautify and respect our world and bring together people of all kinds in a spirit of vibrant celebration.

In 2017, MGM Resorts employees volunteered 114,900 hours at community nonprofit organizations, while the company gave more than $12.4 million in cash and in-kind charitable donations.

According to online employment service, development opportunities, training and mentorship are among the offerings that new graduates want from their employers.

MGM Resorts provides all employees with a variety of training and programs, including 19 employee network groups (ENGs) organized around a common factor such as gender, ethnicity and sexuality. The Emerging Leaders Network Group is designed for employees who are either new to their careers or venturing down a new career path. ENGs provide opportunities for members to share and collaborate about their workplace experiences, receive valuable career and professional development guidance and more.

The company also offers new or soon-to-be college graduates:
The Hospitality Internship Program (HIP), a 10-week paid internship that introduces college students to the company. Participants receive professional development, executive exposure, and hands-on learning experiences.

Management Associate Program, a 12-month professional development program that offers recent bachelor's and master's degree recipients the opportunity to develop their exposure and leadership skills in the integrated resort industry. Upon successful completion of this program, Management Associates are usually placed in entry-level roles within their areas of concentration.

MGM Resorts recently announced two tuition programs, further demonstrating that the company is committed to helping its employees advance in their careers and in life. The College Opportunity Program will offer company employees an online education through the Nevada System of Higher Education, while the Student Loan Repayment Plan will match a portion of employees' monthly student loan debt payments, helping them accelerate full loan repayment. Both programs will go into effect in 2019.

Employees who completed the Forbes survey were contacted online and asked to provide anonymous feedback. Employers did not play a role in the selection of participants. The survey was conducted on companies from all industry sectors.

CHANGZHOU, Tiongkok, 14 September 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited ("Trina Solar" atau "perusahaan"), penyedia solusi lengkap dan terkemuka untuk energi surya, telah menerima peringkat terbaik dalam laporan tentang aspek kelayakan menerima fasilitas perbankan (bankability) di kalangan produsen modul listrik. Laporan ini diterbitkan oleh Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). Dengan terbitnya laporan terbaru ini, Trina Solar kini menjadi satu-satunya produsen modul listik yang dinilai sepenuhnya bankable sebanyak tiga kali berturut-turut oleh 100% pakar industri yang berpartisipasi dalam survei BNEF.

Ketika menilai aspek bankability dari produsen PV, bank berfokus pada kesehatan keuangan perusahaan; rekam jejak kinerja modul di lapangan; dan jaminan mutu dari produsen, menurut peserta survei. Dalam survei ini, Bloomberg NEF melibatkan pelaku perbankan, pengelola dana investasi, EPC, produsen listrik swasta (IPP) dan penasihat teknis di seluruh dunia. Para ahli ini mewakili kapasitas PV terpasang 29GW secara global. BNEF juga mengadakan serangkaian wawancara mendalam dengan pengawas kualitas dan penasihat teknis guna melengkapi survei.

Rongfang Yin, Executive Vice President, Trina Solar, berkomentar: "Kami sangat bangga dengan hasil luar biasa yang sekali lagi dicapai Trina Solar dalam laporan industri yang terkenal ini. Fakta bahwa kami tetap memegang posisi teratas selama tiga tahun berturut-turut bukanlah kebetulan, melainkan cerminan situasi keuangan yang kuat dan catatan kualitas produk yang sehat. Kedua aspek ini dihargai oleh pelaku perbankan dan investor di seluruh dunia yang sangat terlibat dalam pembiayaan proyek." Yin menambahkan, "Penghargaan yang tidak bias ini dapat memberikan jaminan tambahan bagi perusahaan yang mencari mitra andal untuk jangka panjang di tengah situasi industri yang serba tidak pasti dan memaksa para pemain yang lebih rapuh keluar dari pasar."

Laporan terbaru BNEF juga mengutip PV Module Reliability Scorecard, yang diterbitkan oleh DNV GL. Dalam catatan tersebut, Trina Solar menjadi "Top Performer" di antara produsen modul dunia untuk keempat kalinya sejak 2014. Scorecard tersebut adalah perbandingan uji reliabilitas modul PV yang paling komprehensif dan hasilnya telah tersedia untuk umum di pasaran saat ini. Menurut DNV GL, produsen yang berpartisipasi dalam uji tersebut mencari dukungan pihak ketiga untuk pola pikir mereka yang berkualitas tinggi.

Moxy Times Square Named Development Of The Year By ALIS, The American Lodging Investment Summit

NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS), has named Moxy Times Square as Development of the Year Select/Limited Service hotel for 2017. The winners were announced today during the ALIS conference at the JW Marriott and Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE. Nominees for the awards are evaluated based on outstanding business performance in various industry sectors.

Produced by Northstar Travel Group, in association with the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) and Burba Hotel Network (BHN), the ALIS conference brings together the lodging industry's leading hotel executives, investors, lenders, developers, and professional advisory community.

The September 2017 opening of Moxy Times Square represented a disruptive shift in scale for New York City hotels. Lightstone, the developer, transformed a historic building into a dynamic, design-driven hotel with 612 bedrooms and over 22,000 square feet of food, beverage and event space.

To execute Lightstone's vision for Moxy, a large hotel that's not a homogenized experience, the developer enlisted a star team of collaborators: Yabu Pushelberg for interior design, TAO Group to cultivate the food and beverage program and Rockwell Group to design the restaurants and bars. Franchised by Marriott International and managed by Magna Hospitality, Moxy elevates the select service experience with cleverly designed bedrooms, a buzzing atmosphere, flexible co-working spaces, electrifying dining and drinking experiences and cultural programming.

Five dining destinations by TAO Group culminate in Magic Hour, NYC's largest indoor / outdoor all-season hotel rooftop bar and lounge. Additional venues include: Legasea, a seafood brasserie, Bar Moxy, the social heart of the hotel, The Pickup, a twist on the traditional grab-and-go and Egghead, an egg-centric all-day breakfast spot.

Given Moxy's location at 485 7th Avenue, the hotel serves as a unique social anchor for the neighborhood with property programming: nightly DJ sets, local artist collaborations and personalized pop-up shops. Moxy offers a 24-hour fitness center and complimentary, weekly fitness classes for guests and locals as part of its #SweatAtMoxy series.

With an innovative design and a playful soul at rates that make it accessible to all, Moxy creates a new paradigm for the modern traveler.
