Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority Praized For Achievements Once Again

Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority recently received a recognition that has proven its consistency. For the third year in a row, the authority is recognized as one of the top employers in Saskatchewan. Ranking among the 100 most prominent employers within the province is an achievement that has been welcomed by the company ever since 2018 when it was first claimed.

Such recognition for the gaming authority is a recognition motivating it to go above and beyond over the following twelve months of operation. Canada’s Top 100 Employers Project is here to offer the needed appraisal for the companies that have achieved a lot. Ever since 2006, this initiative supports local organizations and corporations, encouraging them to perform even better.

Recognition for the Third Year in a Row

The tribal gaming authority would forever remember 2018 as it was the first year it received a spot at the special list of excellent employers in Saskatchewan. This year is also special, as it brings the third award for the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority. Some of the criteria for making a company eligible for the special prize are considered key elements for every worker.

They include the general work atmosphere and the positive vibe it has, as well as the benefits the company is capable of bringing to the table. They motivate workers to perform their best and work towards their goals in a more efficient manner. Employee engagement is another key factor that has its influence when a company is evaluated for special recognition. Seeking excellence, the company is also responsible for the training and skills development of its workers.

If all of the factors needed are met with excellence, the company becomes eligible for a position on the special list and a recognition that is important in our day and age. Shauna Bear, Vice-President of Human Resources for SIGA, said that the authority is excited to be once again among the best employers on a provincial level.

This Year Brings More

Ever since 1005 when the authority commenced its operation, it has striven to make a change and allow the tribal community chances for development and success in the local gaming industry. The third year in a row would make it possible for the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority to perceive its goals with more motivation down the road.

Keeping its employees throughout more than two decades also comes to prove its determination. One of the main reasons for its success is the monitoring and the feedback from workers SIGA is able to obtain on a regular basis. It could be recalled that the summer of 2019 was an important one for the company, as it saw the greenlighting of its new headquarters. It is a joint project with the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation and it is a building located on the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation reserve land.

The project amounts to some CA$12 million and comes following 24 years of partnership. It comes with 9,750 square feet of warehouse space, enough for welcoming all slot machines in need of storage space. According to the latest revenue report issued by the authority, fiscal 2018-2019 was able to bring gaming revenue reaching CA$262 million across the tribal casino venues within the province.
