As the largest employer on the Vegas strip, with over 62,000 employees in the U.S. alone, MGM Resorts needed a workforce management solution that could provide valuable insight into operations and compliance. But perhaps more importantly they needed a solution that would serve their complex scheduling and payroll needs across all functions and locations of their business — from gaming and hospitality, to retail and food and beverage.

What MGM needed was a solution that could:

  • Deliver real-time employee data they could leverage to improve operations
  • Accurately schedule thousands of employees across multiple locations
  • Automate complex payroll requirements to achieve the perfect paycheck
  • Manage compliance risks associated with union regulations, tip payment rules, and Gaming Control Board licensing and regulations
“Getting visibility into the workforce is probably the most powerful thing that we can get [with Kronos]. The 24/7 access managers have to employee data really gives them the greatest opportunity to make sure they have the right people, doing the right job, at the right time.”
