ABSTRACT

The primary focus of this academic study is to determine the proportion of casino employees within the Osu that actually come from the community relative to those from outside the community. The researcher’s intension is to discover whether casinos in the community have most employees coming from the same community. A secondary motive is to find the trend in casino employments of the Osu community over a specified period of time. The scope of the study is limited to casinos in Osu, a suburb of Accra in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. Methodology employed for this study was a mixture of quantitative and qualitative approaches. Both primary and secondary data about casino employees were collected and analyzed in arriving at key findings based on specific objectives of the study. The first key findings of the study was that most employees of casinos in Osu reside outside the community. This means that most people living in the community do not get employed in the various casinos for various reasons. Another key finding was that, given casino employee turnover rate from 2014 to 2019, there a positive trend. This means casino employment in the community has increased over time. The study is concluded with recommendations for the Gaming Commission of Ghana to have provisions in the Gaming Act 2006, Act 721 which mandates casinos to hire and maintain a proportion of staff from communities where they are established.
