Abstract

This chapter uses a case study approach to examine an innovative corporate social responsibility (CSR) program designed to engage and motivate employees. MGM Resorts International, one of the largest casino gaming corporations, debuted the “Inspiring Our World” program in 2012 and continues to use it as a guide for the company’s CSR efforts. This chapter looks specifically at the program’s internal efforts to involve employees in CSR actions and considers how a program of this sort can benefit the corporation via employee engagement. It also discusses the important role that HR managers can take in facilitating such a program to ensure it has the best chance at success.
