LAS VEGAS, Jun. 28 /CSRwire/ - MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) became the first integrated resort company nationally to sign the Statement of Support for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) pledge. ESGR is a Department of Defense office.

The Statement of Support confirms MGM Resorts International joins other employers in pledging:

  • We fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA).
  • Our managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
  • We appreciate the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists and Veterans.
  • We will continually recognize and support our country’s service members and their families in peace, in crises and in war.

"Supportive employers like MGM Resorts International are critical to maintaining the readiness and strength of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units and allow Guardsmen and Reservists the opportunity to serve our country more effectively and with greater peace of mind," said Joe Moseley, ESGR Nevada Vice Committee Chairman. "By signing this Statement of Support, MGM Resorts International sends a clear message they stand committed to their military employees and recognize the integrity, global perspective and proven leadership they bring to the workplace.”

“We are honored to support the Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve and our employees who are active members of the National Guard and Reserve,” said Michelle DiTondo, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for MGM Resorts. “The sacrifice they make for our country, coupled with the sacrifice of their family members makes us both proud—and humble.”
