Addicted to the win? Gambling, mental health and the workplace

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.

There have been some high-profile cases of City workers gambling assets belonging to their employers and more work is being done to look at the links between problem gambling and the profile of those working in specific jobs within the City, particularly trading. In addition, there is the proliferation of gambling shops and online betting sites and apps, which can encourage risky levels of gambling and particularly target those in more deprived areas, who may also include those working in the City in non-desk-based jobs.

This workshop will address the legal and health/ duty of care challenges surrounding gambling within the workforce and is aimed at HR leads in the City of London. Speakers will include representatives from national charity GamCare and City law firm Squire Patton Boggs.
