The Company receives a Gold Award in the “Best Team Building Program” category for strengthening employee collaboration and a Silver Award in the “Most Valued HR Team” category for its fast response to Covid-19.

INTRALOT announces two prestigious distinctions in the categories “Learning & Development” and “Covid-19 Response Actions” at the HR Awards 2020 ceremony held on October 14th, as a recognition for its Human Resources initiatives and practices.

INTRALOT’s Human Resources team won the Gold Award in the category “Learning & Development: Best Team Building Program” for the design and implementation of the Hackathon initiative, aiming to bring closer its people from around the world. During the internal Hackathon competition, employees participated in brainstorming discussions, worked together to generate innovative ideas, had fun, and shared an amazing experience, strengthening INTRALOT’s culture of collaboration.

INTRALOT HR Department also received a Silver Award in the new category “Covid-19 Response Actions: Most Valuable HR Team”, for its immediate response and plan since the beginning of the pandemic. The main goal was the protection of our employees’ health and the prompt implementation of all measures to address the pandemic, ensuring business continuity at a Group level.

“INTRALOT’s human capital is the most valuable asset of the Company. We are proud of our employees and the culture they have established in our Company. For this reason, the Company’s first priority was the protection of our employees even before the spread of Covid-19 reached the levels of a pandemic. INTRALOT Hackathon competitions were introduced approximately nine years ago, gradually evolving to their present form. These competitions are very important as they aim to increase the levels of innovation in the day-to-day conduct of the employees. I would like to congratulate our HR Department for adopting world-class practices and thank all of our employees for their creativity and commitment to INTRALOT,” said Dr. Chris Dimitriadis, INTRALOT Group CEO.

“The Hackathon initiative created a valuable legacy for our Company, providing us with innovative state-of-the-art technology, while enhancing the team spirit and strengthening the bonds of INTRALOT’s global family. Moreover, towards Covid-19 response actions, our primary goal was to establish a direct and continuous communication with our people by implementing a program focused on online training, connection and communication, and their well-being,” said Mr. Eddy Gerekos, HR Director of the INTRALOT Group.

The HR Awards are organized for the 6th consecutive year by the HR Professional magazine and Boussias Communications, aiming to recognize the best initiatives and practices in the Human Resources sector in our country.

The UK government is going to set up an independent review into the Football Index collapse. The plan for the review is welcomed by the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC).

A spokesperson for the Betting and Gaming Council said: “We strongly welcome this independent review of the regulation of Football Index, up to the point where its operator’s licence was suspended in March.

“Following the suspension of BetIndex Ltd’s operating licence by the Gambling Commission last month, we immediately suspended their membership of the BGC.

“We have been concerned about reports that the Gambling Commission was made aware of issues surrounding Football Index’s business model as early as the start of 2020, something the BGC was not made aware of at the time.

“The top priority remains consumer welfare and we hope that the inquiry leads to vital lessons being learned for the future.”

“We are looking forward to working closely with EA SPORTS and our broadcast partner Tencent Sports to showcase some of the world’s best gamers in action. I am sure it will prove popular with the loyal and passionate supporters of Premier League clubs in China.”

Matches will be played on EA SPORTS FIFA Online 4 (FO4) on PC, which has more than 10 million registered players in China. Each of the 20 Premier League clubs will be represented in the tournament by two local players – one high-ranking gamer on the FO4 leader board and one influencer.

This will include famous esports commentator Guan Zeyuan and the well-known FIFA Online influencer Shen Rongjie.

The clubs will be divided into four groups of five teams, with the winners of each group advancing to a knockout stage. Group-stage matches will be played online, whereas knockout matches will be played offline at Wisdom Bay in Shanghai.

Group matches will take place between Wednesday 28 April and Saturday 8 May. The knockout phase will be held on Friday 14 May, with the Grand Final on Saturday 15 May.
