Ladbrokes to link exec bonuses to responsible gambling

Ladbrokes is to link executive bonuses to its clampdown on problem gambling.


In its Preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2013, the bookmaker stated it will establish a committee, which will report to the main board, to oversee a formalisation of a number of responsible gambling performance measures into senior executives’ remuneration.

The report stated: “While the business has always placed a high degree of focus on responsible gambling, we are taking further actions to reinforce its position at the heart of Ladbrokes.

“There will be a board committee dedicated to the topic and, from 2015, we will formalise responsible gambling measures into executive remuneration.”

Ladbrokes has declined to provide further details of the plan.
