Griffiths, Mark
Journal of Workplace Learning, v21 n8 p658-670 2009
Purpose: This paper seeks to overview the issues, concerns and challenges relating to gambling--and more specifically internet gambling--in the workplace. Design/methodology/approach: Using psychological literature, this paper outlines a number of important and inter-related areas including brief overviews of gambling and problem gambling, internet gambling, social impact of internet gambling, types of gambling in the workplace and associated issues, and the effects of gambling in the workplace. Findings: The paper reveals that issues surrounding gambling and internet gambling in the workplace are a neglected but important area for employers and employees. Research limitations/implications: The empirical base for the paper was based on a small number of peer-reviewed papers. Practical implications: Using the findings of the psychological literature, guidelines for managers on the issue of gambling and internet gambling in the workplace are presented. Originality/value: Research on internet gambling is sparse and there is almost nothing in the literature concerning implications of internet gambling in the workplace.
