The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) recently became the subject of the best type of scrutiny when it was named on the Forbes Canada’s Best Employers for 2022 list. This is the organisation’s first appearance on the list, placing it among the top 20% of businesses in that country that employ over 500 staff.

The OLG is Ontario’s Crown corporation that manages and creates premium iGaming content for the province’s players. The organisation focuses on maintaining a safe and regulated environment across the land-based gaming properties, lottery games, iGaming, bingo, and charitable gaming centres that it oversees.

Filled With Pride

The President and CEO of the OLG, Duncan Hannay, shared that the corporation feels truly honoured by this acknowledgement. He added that it was encouraging to see that many employees feel that the OLG cultivates an excellent work environment, urging any Ontarian with an ambitious spirit to put themselves forward for a role at the OLG.

Hannay explained that, as a cutting-edge entertainment and gaming organisation, the Crown corporation takes responsibility for shaping its local culture and offering top-tier service to its customers. The OLG made it up to an impressive 53rd place on the Forbes list which consisted of 300 companies.

The 2022 list was created by Forbes in collaboration with Statista Inc. Their process involved independent surveys that were conducted with over 10,000 employees across numerous companies that met the 500 employee minimum requirement. The companies were graded according to direct and direct recommendations from staff who rated how likely they were to recommend their employer to others.

Nancy Kennedy, OLG’s Senior VP of People and Culture, said that the fact that the employees, brought this award to the company is what makes it special. She emphasised how the organisation’s values of respect, support, and diversity live through its employees and that this is ultimately what makes the Crown a superior workplace.

Giving Back

The OLG’s quarterly revenue-sharing allocation to Ontario’s municipalities is currently in progress with regions that host casino properties claiming a share of their revenues under the Municipality Contribution Agreement.

The City of Windsor recently received a payment of $2,158,545 for having Caesars Windsor Casino operate within its territory for October 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021.
