Multimedia Games Debuts on Austin American-Stateman's List of Top Workplaces 2012
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Austin may not be the obvious choice for a casino gaming company's home
base, but the city's people make it a great fit for Multimedia Games
Holding Company, Inc. (the "Company" or "Multimedia Games"). An emphasis
on its employees is not only engrained in the Company culture, but is a
major reason behind the Company's success. Multimedia Games' investment
in its employees can be seen most recently as the Company was named in
the Austin American-Statesman's list of Top Workplaces for 2012.
"Being in Austin helps us draw creative and technology talent that is
critical to developing casino games that stand out from our
competition," said Patrick Ramsey, President and CEO of Multimedia
Games. "These employees, who are core to everything we do, are a true
competitive advantage for us. That is why focusing on our culture and
embracing Austin is so critical."
Founded in 1991, Multimedia Games currently employs 274 Austinites and
over 431 people nationwide, having added 74 new employees in 2012. With
the Company's position as an innovator and one of the leading providers
of interactive gaming systems, Multimedia Games expects to continue its
local growth trend in the year ahead.
Community engagement, and working towards benefiting the Austin
community, is also a critical part of Multimedia Games' culture. Since
2010, Multimedia Games has partnered with local charities to raise
awareness for those charities at the Company's annual picnic for
employees and their families. All proceeds from the sale of raffle
tickets, t-shirts and concession stand items, along with donations,
benefit these charities. For its 2012 annual picnic, the Company and its
employees raised more than $5,000 for the Town Lake Animal Shelter and
Caritas of Austin, a provider of food, classes and other items for the
homeless, the working poor and documented refugees in Travis County.
Employees are encouraged to donate their time by volunteering at the
Community Kitchen at Caritas of Austin and the Company has supported the
Capital Area Food Bank by organizing food drives during the holiday
season. Multimedia Games also sponsored the 21st and 22nd
Annual Thundercloud Subs Turkey Trot in 2011 and 2012, respectively,
with over $265,000 raised in 2011 for Caritas of Austin.
Nominations submitted to the Austin American-Statesman for Top
Workplace are compiled by an independent research group,
WorkplaceDynamics. The outside firm conducted anonymous surveys on each
of the nominee companies, asking employees to rate their employers on
matters such as leadership and direction, ethics and values, and how
well employees are treated. Following the analysis of the results,
WorkplaceDynamics grouped the top employers in categories based on the
number of employees.
Mr. Ramsey concluded, "Developing a top workplace is a key priority for
everyone at Multimedia Games and we realize it is a continuous process
that we have to focus on each and every day. Not only does participation
in this process give us recognition for our hard work, it also helps us
focus on what we need to do to improve our employee environment and
achieve our workplace goals."
