PokerStars Wins Best Workplace Award
World’s Largest Poker Company Celebrates “Great Place To Work” Achievement
PokerStars, the world’s largest poker company, has been chosen as one of the best work places in the UK.
The Isle of Man-based company employs 1,200 people and according to The Great Place to Work Institute it was the company’s robust employee benefits and rewards, strong professional development opportunities and a diverse workforce that helped seal the deal.
The announcement of the award rubs further salt in the wounds of its former competitor Full Tilt Poker, which once employed over 500 people in its Dublin office and where morale has been low since Black Friday.
PokerStars is now thought to be on the brink of being taken over by its one time rival PokerStars.
Lynn Hunter, director of human resources at PokerStars, said, “As a fast-growing company, attracting and retaining talented people is critical to our business, so we are dedicated to ensuring our employees are well supported, nurtured and rewarded.
“This is the first time we’ve participated in the Great Place to Work survey, so it’s especially gratifying to know that our efforts are contributing to the success of our business, and that employees consider PokerStars to be a Great Place to Work.”
