Points of Light, the world’s largest nonprofit dedicated to accelerating people-powered change, has announced The Civic 50 honorees of 2022, which included Caesars Entertainment for the eighth consecutive year. A report featuring key trends, benchmarking data and insights from the honorees has also released.
For 10 years, The Civic 50 has provided a national standard for corporate citizenship. It showcases how companies can use their time, skills, and resources to drive social impact in their communities and company. The Civic 50 honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs – investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems, and impact measurement.
“Caesars Entertainment’s CSR framework, PEOPLE PLANET PLAY, provides direction for us to act with integrity and care for our Team Members, communities and the environment,” said Heather Rapp, SVP of Corporate Social Responsibility for Caesars Entertainment. “We’re honored to be recognized for our efforts as one of the top community-minded organizations, and we’re excited to continue to innovate and give back.”
Caesars created the PEOPLE PLANET PLAY framework to guide its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. The framework contains priorities representing the company’s most important business impacts on people, the community and the environment. Caesars sets goals within each of these priorities to help strengthen its overall CSR impact and contribution.
“Corporate leadership and commitment to civic engagement are critical for strengthening communities,” said Natalye Paquin, president & CEO of Points of Light. “Our most recent global research shows 86% of people say they expect companies to take action on a social issue. Companies like Caesars are leading the way and setting an example of how you can leverage your employee talent, business models and assets to create deep impact that drives transformational change.”
The Civic 50 survey is administered by True Impact and consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform the scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
