Creating a Business Case for Responsible Gambling Training


This presentation is a case study of the Oregon Lottery's new retailer and employee training program " Responsible Gambling and You". The Oregon Lottery in consultation with Janine Robinson and Oregon public health stakeholders developed this multi-faceted program based on the central premise of customer service. Unlike many other training programs which use compliance mandates to ensure participation, the Lottery chose to focus instead on developing a strong and compelling business case for responsible gambling training. This presentation will illustrate how involving stakeholders from concept through execution resulted in unprecedented collaboration and buy-in. We will also discuss how using a customer service positioning enabled retailer staff, Lottery player facing staff as well as Lottery office staff to understand and embrace their own unique roles in promoting responsible gambling.
