Employees with high salary jobs can be more susceptible to gambling problems
An employee who relies on sales performance to earn a living can often be susceptible to gambling problems for a number of different reasons.
It is difficult for an employee to rely on sales and league table position without becoming competitive. This level of competition and targets can take many out of their comfort zone and gambling can become their coping mechanism and emotional crutch. If an employee has targets to hit, but often doesn’t, then they often find ways to try to make up the difference in salary in other ways, often leading to gambling or theft.
