Gambling and the workplace — a hidden problem
Gambling not only harms individuals and families, but also has a significant impact on employers, businesses, and other work organisations.
According to Public Health England, gambling in the workplace is on the rise, but whether in work or outside, problem gambling is linked to:
- Poor concentration on work
- Poor work performance
- Sleep deprivation
- Increased lateness and absence
- Negative impacts on employers and work colleagues
- mental health issues
- misuse of company property
- reduced health and wellbeing
- relationship breakdowns.
Sadly, problem gambling often flies under the radar, causing untold suffering for individuals and an estimated £1.27 billion annual loss to the eonomy.
