Resorts World Sentosa lays off 30 staff over CNY

At least 30 employees at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) in Singapore have been let go over the Chinese New Year period, according to local media.

Grant Govertsen of Union Gaming said given Genting Singapore is in a period of declining earnings, it would make sense for the casino operator to cut costs wherever possible. “It is indeed likely RWS was overstaffed relative to the current, or lower, levels of business,” he said.

Some of the staff cut came from the casino department, including cage cashiers and pit managers. A spokesman for Resorts World Sentosa said: “As part of our efforts to improve our service delivery in our resort, staff performance appraisal and movement is integral to this effort.”
