Great Blue Heron Casino Announced As One of GTA’s Top Employers

PORT PERRY, ON. Monday 12, 2016

The Great Blue Heron Casino is thrilled to be named as one of the Top Employers for 2017 in the GTA, announced today in a special supplement in the Toronto edition of The Globe and Mail.

The Greater Toronto’s Top Employer award is a prestigious award sponsored by the Globe and Mail and Mediacorp, which is earned through an annual competition recognizing excellence in a number of categories. The GTA is the largest of the regional competitions across Canada rivaling the national list for its competitive nature.

CEO and General Manager Arnold Block says the casino's close-knit atmosphere is one of the benefits of an "employee-focused" culture that recognizes that happy employees make for happy guests. Many have been there for more than 10 years, and about 60 long-serving employees were among the first hired when the facility opened in 1997.

"We train them well enough so they could leave," says Block, "but treat them well enough that they don't want to. That's the underlying philosophy."

The Great Blue Heron Casino is located in Port Perry, Ontario, just one-hour northeast of Toronto and an easy 30-40 minute drive from Markham, Oshawa, Ajax, Pickering, Whitby, Peterborough and Lindsay.

Guests can enjoy an extensive mix of 60 thrilling table games and 535 of the newest and most popular slot machines around. The Great Blue Heron offers guests a number of dining outlets including the award-winning Waters Edge Buffet Restaurant.

Owned by the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, the casino is managed by the Great Blue Heron Gaming Company, a partnership comprised of Casinos Austria International, the Steiner Group and Sonco Gaming.

The Great Blue Heron Casino is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For more information visit our website at or call 1-888-294-3766. Great Blue Heron Casino…We have a winner!
