Saskatoon, SK – The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) has been named one of the 2016 “Best Casinos to Work for” in North America by the Casino Journal.

SIGA (Corporate and Casinos) was fourth on a list of the top five casino organizations who competed from across North America, and it was the only Canadian Casino organization that was recognized.

“SIGA is very proud of this accomplishment,” said President and CEO Zane Hansen in a press release. “Since starting in the 1990’s, we have grown SIGA into an employee compliment of about 1,900 people, making SIGA the largest First Nations employer in Canada –over 1,300 of our employees identify as First Nations. We continue to improve as an organization, and we are proud of our employees; they are contributing on a grand scale to the communities where they live, work and play.”

Participation in this program required SIGA’s employees to go through an assessment process that included surveying employees and taking an inventory of company benefits, policies and offerings. SIGA then received a summarized analysis of the engagement and satisfaction of employees at SIGA.

“We are very proud of our employees at our casinos and corporate office. SIGA is always exploring new ways to develop and enhance our workplace. We actively look for and value feedback from our employees. It helps us to improve the working environment, and we strive to provide the resources needed to encourage their professional success. We work hard at ensuring our workplace is the best so that we can attract and retain top talent to better serve our customers,” said Shauna Bear, vice president of Human Resources.
