||Gambling problems among gaming venue employees: A preliminary survey
||Aug. 2008, Vol.24, No.4, p.329-341. 25 ref.
||Numerous workplace factors can enhance the attractiveness of gambling for gaming venue employees. This article reports on a survey of 56 gaming venue staff investigating workplace influences on the gambling behaviour of employees. The results indicate high rates of problem gambling. The opportunity therefore exists for gaming venue employers to better protect their employees by limiting staff gambling in the workplace, raising awareness of the risks of gambling, assisting any staff with gambling problems, and better promoting employee wellbeing.
