Gambling is a social activity spread across the world. When people gamble at work, the workplace as a whole is initially affected through lost time (i.e.: paid for not working) & productivity. However, the results are more far reaching than that.

Learning Objectives Covered During This Session: 

  • Concern for workplace security, from embezzlement to healthcare costs   
  • Potential threat to other team members safety while at work  
  • Policies employers should consider and implement   
  • Assistance with addiction to gambling

Why attend?

The National Council on Problem Gambling estimates that six to eight million Americans suffer from gambling problem. Most gambling addicts use their time at work to hide their problem from family. More concerning, over 60% of compulsive gamblers break policies and even the law in order to financially support their gambling addiction, similar to other addictions. Often coworkers are the first to notice but do not necessarily report it. HR and Managers should be aware of these signs and put policies in place to stop gambling while at work.
