Webinar: “Addicted to the win? Gambling, mental health and the workplace”
Join us for a free webinar looking at the issue of problem gambling and the role of employers in providing support
Gambling is rising up the public health agenda – approximately 2.5 million adults in the UK partake in risky or problem levels of gambling, which can result in significant harm for the individual, their family, social networks, community and society. The proliferation of gambling shops and online betting sites and apps in recent years is particularly harmful for those who are already at-risk.
Some people working in the City, due to the risk-taking nature of their jobs, are inherently more likely to develop a gambling problem. There have been some high-profile cases of City workers gambling assets belonging to their employers. In addition, risky levels of gambling can create personal finance issues, which can also result in poor mental wellbeing.
Join us for this free webinar, which is aimed at HR leads and those responsible for health and wellbeing within firms in the City of London. Speakers will include representatives from national charity GamCare and City law firm Squire Patton Boggs, who will look at the issue of problem gambling, as well as employers’ legal duty of care.
