LAS VEGAS, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --   MGM Resorts International has taken an innovative approach to team building for its 62,000 employees.

Through original music and choreography, world-class theatrics and captivating storytelling, 70 employees shared their talents before thousands of peers, uniting 50,000 southern Nevada team members from MGM Resorts' family of properties on stage and in the audience.

The Inspiring Our World production served as a platform to deepen the company's corporate culture and motivate employees to excel in guest service while making positive contributions to the communities they call home, embracing diversity and being exceptional environmental stewards.

Jim Murren, Chairman & CEO of MGM Resorts International, said the program serves to celebrate the company's successes as an international hospitality and entertainment leader.

"Our passion for diversity and inclusion, community engagement and the environment unites, unifies and empowers our employees to create a positive, long-lasting impact in the communities in which we operate," Murren said.

The production underscores a larger mission for MGM Resorts more than a decade in the making, from diversity and philanthropy to community engagement and sustainability:

Diversity & Inclusion

  • MGM Resorts has been recognized among the Top 25 Noteworthy Companies for Diversity by DiversityInc Magazine; 40 Best Companies for Diversity by Black Enterprise Magazine; Best Companies for Latina Employees by Latina Style Magazine; Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

  • Since 2001, MGM Resorts has spent a cumulative total of nearly $3 billion with MWDBE suppliers and contractors (minority-owned, women-owned and disadvantaged business enterprises); and businesses owned by veterans, persons with disabilities or LGBT persons.

  • MGM Resorts' donation in 2012 of more than 378,000 pounds of canned food to Three Square, the leading Las Vegas food bank, earned the distinction of the largest single company donation in the nonprofit's history for the third year running.
