Casino Staff Puts on $500K Vegas-Style Show

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- In casinos around the country, staff talent shows give employees a chance to claim their own jackpots.

In Las Vegas, MGM Resorts International is taking the concept a step further, combining the talent show with the staff meeting.

The result: Nine extravagant performances of a production called "Inspiring Our World."

The company is the largest private employer in Nevada. It's paying its 50,000 Las Vegas employees to attend.

They see a dock worker plays violin in a number about diversity.

A training manager dons a sequined dress and sings about environmentally friendly buildings.

Company CEO Jim Murren says the events boost morale and ensure a competitive edge because employees are inspired to stick with the company longer and provide better service.
