Calling All Casino Professionals! 

We are pleased to announce that Bristol Associates, Inc. is conducting the 18th Annual Casino Gaming Executive Satisfaction Survey in conjunction with Spectrum Gaming Group.

Our survey is designed to help the gaming industry attract, retain, and motivate its executive talent by providing insight on executives’ overall attitudes and preferences at their workplace. The following questions will be analyzed in our survey results:

  • Which casino companies do executives want to work for?
  • How do executives quantify overall work satisfaction?
  • What factors (i.e. career growth, location, etc.) are the highest priority when executives choose their employer?

This year, two casino executives will be randomly selected to win a $50 gift card for completing the survey. To be eligible for the raffle, you must fill out your email address at the end of the survey and be a current or former casino executive employee. Only one entry per survey participant.

All individual responses will be kept confidential.

• Which level of executives are most satisfied in their current restaurant segment? Which prefer seeking opportunities in a different segment?
• Which restaurant segment has the most satisfied executives?
• What factors do executives find most attractive about their preferred restaurant segment?

At Bristol Associates, we’re always interested in learning why candidates are attracted to some types of companies more than others.

We conducted a survey with a sampling of 170+ candidates from our database of restaurant executives in order to find out:

  • What attracts top talent to each restaurant segment?
