Services For Employers

Worksafe is a collaboration between BKM Evolve and GamCare, focusing on the prevention and reduction of gambling-related harms through a workplace wellbeing programme.

 

From reduced productivity through to fraud, the impact of gambling related harm in the workplace can be significant.

There are at least 400,000 people currently experiencing serious gambling related harm in the UK, with a further 2 million at risk1. Given the popularity of gambling in the UK and the rate of harm, most employers will have at least one colleague affected by their own or someone else’s gambling.

Often described as a hidden addiction, harmful gambling may go unnoticed for years.

Harmful gambling can damage relationships, finances, and physical and mental health. At work, productivity, ambition, and engagement may be affected, as well as adherence to safety protocols and vulnerability to criminal activity.

Worksafe training will increase employers’ awareness of the potential risks and
harms associated with gambling. We offer the advice and tools you need to protect your business and support the mental, physical, and financial wellbeing of your people.

Do you work in HR or an associated sector? Are you managing staff? Sign up for our 90 minute Gamblign Harms Essentials Training which is free in our pilot year.
