Holland Casino has announced the signing of the Diversity Charter, an initiative of SER‘s Diversity in Business, to create “equal opportunities for everyone”.
SER is the Netherlands’ diversity consultation service, providing companies with advice in this area while offering referrals to the aforementioned Diversity in Business initiative and its Top Women programme.
The charter will help to promote diversity in the workplace, with the operator setting out to produce an action plan in six months.
One of Holland Casino’s goals is to have at least 50 per cent of the company’s female employees enrolled on its management development courses.
The operator is also working towards having five per cent more women entering and/or advancing into the positions of Duty Manager and Operations Manager within three years.
Maud Provily-Sliepen, Director of Human Resources at Holland Casino and one of those who signed the Diversity Charter, commented: “Signing the Diversity Charter goes hand in hand with the core values of Holland Casino.
“We believe it is important to be a social, safe and inclusive workplace with equal opportunities for everyone.”
Holland Casino trains its managers to promote an environment where everyone feels safe and welcome, and it prioritises social safety so that “people know how to speak out if this is different in practice”.
A biennial integrity survey will also be conducted, to which a “baseline measurement” has already taken place.
Holland Casino’s diversity initiatives are expected to be rolled out across its casino venues in Breda, Eindhoven, Enschede, Groningen, Leeuwarden, Nijmegen, Rotterdam, Scheveningen, Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport), Utrecht, Valkenburg and Venlo.
