Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Aggregator and platform United Remote has announced the appointment of Christopher Grech Bonett as the company’s Head of Human Resources, another important enlargement to the United Remote management group under industry veterans CEO Jeremy Fall and CFO Volker Rohde. Grech Bonett will implement comprehensive human capital strategies to achieve organisational goals, improve employee engagement and retention scores, and enhance the employee experience.

Mr. Grech Bonett brings a wealth of experience in human resources management with him to the company having been recruited from STMicroelectronics where he was Human Resources Business Partner Manager, as well as working with Swedish mobile gaming company and provider of online casino and sports betting services, LeoVegas. During his tenure at STMicroelectronics, Christopher partnered with leadership to proactively identify and address HR challenges, investigate and manage conflict, develop and implement corporate polices for increased efficiency, and deliver training.

Christopher takes over the HR Department at United Remote following significant remodelling of the function by HR Consultant Kevin Norville. The team at United Remote has been encouraged to openly discuss the goals that have to be achieved and how to meet the company’s growth plans, this now forms part of the fabric and culture of the business on a daily basis. The HR plan mirrors this with processes and products, alongside the people in the team.

Softer elements like office setup, good communication, catered lunches daily in the common area, help release a revitalised team spirit by allowing people to talk with workmates in a different way. HR is considered an equal within the company compared with software or operations or marketing or finance, or any other aspect of United Remote’s business.

United Remote has successfully completed a period of intensive reshaping driven by the need to embrace game-changing innovation which has resulted in major technology and enterprise investments. The organisational culture has been significantly reshaped to provide added-value to operators.

In addition to technology investments and enhancements, United Remote has been adapting the agreements the company previously had put in place, de-risking the entire enterprise, and focusing very particularly on customer protection. United Remote has embraced substantial change to streamline new integrations and provide operators profitable real-time data. This is all part of upping United Remote’s service to the iGaming industry and ensuring that the B2B-channel is given priority with an easy-to-use back-end where operators can quickly set up the tools available on the platform.

Christopher Grech Bonett, Head of HR, said: “I believe human resource management is key to a company’s success because it can enable its departments to deliver programmes and services in the most efficient manner possible. I am very excited at the opportunity to serve the team leaders and lead the Human Resources Department in such a rapidly growing company.”

Announcing the appointment, United Remote Group CEO Jeremy Fall said: “Christopher has an extensive background in human resource management and he will be able to hit the ground running. He also has valuable experience in innovative human resource solutions that will be a great addition to our senior management team.”

Casinoblox joins the Canadian market

CasinoBlox, a casino comparison site with a rapidly growing reputation, has launched its services in Canada, a market that is escalating with similar speed. The CasinoBlox platform first appeared in Germany earlier this year. Despite being relatively new on the scene, it has become a go-to resource for gamers who are looking for unbiased information on the online casino gaming options that are open to them in their domestic markets.

 

A land of opportunity

Evolving state legislation has meant that much of the focus has been on the USA over the past couple of years. However, casino gaming in Canada is also booming, making the whole of North America a land of genuine opportunity. One area where Canada really stands out is in its regulation of iGaming. Gambling has proved to be a legislative nightmare south of the border, with states tripping over themselves in laying down even the most basic ground rules. In Canada, however, the Kahnawake Gaming Commission has acted with speed and clarity to present a strict but fair operating framework for online casinos.

Canadians have taken to iGaming in their droves, and this has, in turn, led to both established casino companies and brand new entrants rushing to claim a slice of this growing market. On the face of it, that sort of competition is good news for gamers. However, the sheer scale of choice can make it difficult to know which platform to choose. That’s where the services of CasinoBlox come to the fore.

 

Customer-centric approach

CasinoBlox might not be the only casino comparison site available, but it stands out from the competition by providing a service that is truly bespoke. Others might simply add Canadian sites to their review lists and call it a done deal, while the CasinoBlox website is specifically tailored to its audience. All its content is in Canadian English and it speaks to Canadian gamers on a personal level that is both refreshing and unusual.

The site intuitively guides visitors through the many casino platforms that are available in today’s online casino market. It provides a coherent roadmap for even the least experienced gamer to make an informed choice on the basis of trustworthiness, the games available, payment methods and other such criteria.

 

Adding value

As well as providing this guidance, CasinoBlox also makes a clear effort to answer the sort of questions that gamers will ask, as opposed to just providing lists of readily available information. For example, trying to decipher casino promotions and bonuses can be hard work even for those who are old hands at online casino gaming. CasinoBlox compares and contrasts the different offers in a way that anyone can understand.

It also provides value-added content in terms of blog posts, articles and YouTube videos that dig deep into specific topics. These include bonuses, new casinos or specific game developers, to give just a few examples.

 

The mobile revolution

Today, more than 50 percent of gaming takes place on a mobile device. It’s a fact that many sites seem to ignore, but CasinoBlox has placed the mobile experience front and centre in everything it does. Mobile is only going to continue to grow, and CasinoBlox’s relevance in the iGaming marketplace is growing with it.

In the short time that CasinoBlox has been live in the Canadian market, it has already started to show good traction. It is clearly becoming a favourite among Canada’s ever-growing community of casino goers, and that is a relationship that is set to get stronger as both the company and the market in which it operates matures.
