The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – May 18, 2015

The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – May 18, 2015 – Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico’s Best Bet, was recognized as the No. 1 “Top Workplace” in Albuquerque Journal’s “Top New Mexico Workplaces of 2015.” Based solely on anonymous employee feedback, the award recognizes the company’s extraordinary achievements in creating a positive work environment and a strong company culture. This is the second consecutive year the casino has received the highest honor in “Top Workplaces.” Additionally, General Manager John Cirrincione received the “Best Leadership” award for the third consecutive year, recognizing the innovative direction he provides to the casino’s team and his passionate approach to leadership. 

“Being ranked as the top workplace in New Mexico for the second year in a row is a humbling honor and a testament to the foundation of teamwork that our company is built upon,” said Santa Ana Star Casino General Manager John Cirrincione. “At Santa Ana Star Casino, we don’t have employees—we have team members—and we are committed to empowering each person on our team to take ownership of their particular roles and unique contributions to our team’s success. Fostering a culture where everyone feels appreciated and supported is central to our success as a team, as a workplace and as a business.” 

This is the third year that Albuquerque Journal has published the “Top Workplaces” list. Representing 30,000 employees throughout the state of N.M., 76 companies participated in the 2015 survey with nearly 16,000 employees completing anonymous evaluations of their work satisfaction, working conditions and company culture. The surveys were evaluated by Workplace Dynamics, an independent market research firm, and presented to the Albuquerque Journal.  The complete list includes 25 small companies, 10 medium companies and five large companies. The results were published in a special section of Albuquerque Journal on Sunday, May 17.
