UNLV's International Gaming Institute (IGI), in partnership with WageWatch, announces that seven casino compensation surveys are now available online as resources for the gaming industry. Since IGI and WageWatch partnered in December 2002, the organizations have released online compensation surveys for:
* Las Vegas Casinos
* National Indian Gaming Casinos
* National Riverboat Gaming Casinos
* Gulf Coast Casinos
* Tunica Casinos
* Reno/Lake Tahoe Casinos
* Gaming Manufacturers
"We are pleased that almost all of the participants from IGI's prior survey years are now participating online with us," said Mary Ann McDaniel, director of surveys for the UNLV International Gaming Institute. "So far, more than 125 casino properties have subscribed and entered data online for the various surveys."
WageWatch offers a unique Web-based compensation and benefits survey tool designed specifically for human resource professionals. WageWatch customizes the survey for each segment of the gaming industry and administers the online surveys for the gaming industry. These surveys are accessible through a gaming industry home page on the WageWatch website.
UNLV and WageWatch are now collaborating to produce a national Executive Casino Compensation survey of the pay and benefits for positions of director and above at the property level. The organizations also expect to release their national Gaming Industry Benefits Survey in the fourth quarter of this year.
All survey subscribers enter their company's compensation and benefits data into the online system to generate reports. The customized reports reflect comparison data of at least five competitors in a specified market or region. This system allows subscribers to cross-reference their facility's benefits and compensation data with that of their competitive set at any time and within minutes.
"This partnership with UNLV will help gaming subscribers have online real-time data at their fingertips," said Randy Pullen, chairman and CEO of WageWatch. "Gaming industry HR professionals can now run customized reports comparing their establishment to their direct competitors."
