RECAP: #CaesarsPPP - People Planet Play - w/ Caesars Entertainment

By Marissa Rosen

Today, Caesars Entertainment and TriplePundit came together at #CaesarsPPP to discuss “People Planet Play” - corporate social responsibility and citizenship at Caesars Entertainment.

The world’s most diversified gaming and entertainment company has released its eighth annual Corporate Citizenship Report, entitled “People Planet Play,” detailing Caesars’ sustained progress and leadership across its many corporate social responsibility initiatives.

The name “People Planet Play” is also Caesars’ new platform that clearly communicates citizenship at all levels of the business and reaffirms the company’s’ commitment to its employees, communities, environmental excellence, and Responsible Gaming.

During #CaesarsPPP, discussed the following and much more:

  • International Growth In early October Caesars emerged from months of intensive negotiations to finalize a restructuring plan that will allow for accelerated growth in international markets. Chief Marketing Officer for EMEA, Sarah Sculpher, will discuss a breadth of global citizenship topics including growth in the UK, where Caesars has established the industry’s gold standard Responsible Gaming program, and newly established diversity goals in Egypt, where the unemployment rate for eligible women is almost triple that of men.

  • The ROI of Environmental Sustainability The impact of CSR is not easy to measure, and tying it to financial outcomes like revenue growth is even trickier. HRSC VP of Marketing Beau Swanson will share the outcomes of the focused marketing effort including what worked, what didn’t, and what the payback can be.

  • The HEROs of Atlantic City - Caesars employee volunteer program – HERO – has been active for more than 20 years. From support of Second Wind Dreams during Senior Appreciation Quarter to raising money for the American Cancer Society through the annual Battle of the Bras and so much more, the Atlantic City team embodies the spirit of HERO. PR Director Noel Stevenson will give us a closer look at what makes the AC region so special.


"The eighth annual Citizenship Report underscores Caesars’ leadership and commitment to operate responsibly," said Mark Frissora, President and CEO of Caesars Entertainment. "To us this means making a sustained, positive impact that benefits our customers, employees and the communities that host our properties.  People Planet Play will help these stakeholders understand where we focus and commit resources to drive responsible fun and business practices."
