The world's largest hotel, casino, and theme park has demonstrated that corporate responsibility to the community and corporate self-interest need not be mutually exclusive. MGM's human resource department established an employment outreach program that hired 1,462 economically disadvantaged persons from the community. This effort was a "win-win" situation for the both the community and the corporation and the hotel received a significant wage credit from the Job Training Partnership Act.
