EPIC launch problem gambling accreditation
EPIC – the leading problem gambling consultancy in the UK and Ireland, launched its problem gambling accreditation scheme in September 2014 and we are well on track to award the first of these by the end of December 2014. The EPIC accreditation is awarded to organisations who are fulfilling their duty or care to shareholders, customers and employees and is backed by senior regulatory bodies, charities and treatment providers in the UK and across the World.
Problem gambling is a huge organisational risk issue, with 1:30 of the UK and Irish workforce statistically ‘gambling more than they can realistically afford’. This presents significant financial, regulatory and legal risks to an organisation.
