Crown Melbourne is a big player in the hospitality, tourism and events sector – owned wholly by Crown Resorts.
The iconic Crown Melbourne complex is a made up of 3 hotels, a casino, bars, restaurants and clubs, alongside leisure facilities such as day spas. Operating 24/7, 365 days of the year, the organisation is dependent on its employees’ reliability for success.
Being Victoria’s largest single site employer, with 700+ positions and a payroll that totals $400 million per year, a huge investment is made by the company in its employees and this is reflected through its recruitment process, reward and recognition schemes, and employee benefits.
With a strong Disability Employment Program and Indigenous Employment Program, Crown provides opportunities for people from all walks of life.
Crown provides its employees with a range of benefits, including Crown Social Club membership, staff restaurants delivering 1,362,000 free meals a year, a gym, e-learning opportunities, and real, sustainable careers with progression.
Providing a range of annual awards for employees, staff competitions and regular employee reviews, Crown Melbourne provides an environment in which it hopes employees to flourish and develop.
For its staff focus, Crown Melbourne has been recognised as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards 2015.
“In a globally competitive tourism industry, attracting, training and retaining talented employees is a crucial part of our strategy as a business. Winning the ABA 100 award for Employer of Choice in the Australian Business Awards for the second year in a row is testament to the success of our strategies and work in this area.
“We pride ourselves on offering not just jobs for our employees, but long-term careers supported by ongoing learning and education. We are particularly proud of our achievements in Indigenous and disability employment, along with the diversity of our employees.
“I would like to thank our many thousands of employees who work together across the business to strengthen our brand and reputation in the hospitality and tourism industry, helping us maintain our position as a market leader”, says Crown Australian Resorts Group CEO, Barry Felstead.
