Good leadership like Sky Bet is essential in times of crisis

As quoted by the Daily Mail, Glassdoor CEO Christian Sutherland-Wong said:

Over the past year, company leaders around the world have faced unprecedented challenges in supporting employees during the Covid-19 crisis.

Now employees have spoken, and it’s clear these CEOs have stood out and found new ways to support their people when the world of work has been turned upside down.

Through a challenging year, it is inspiring to see top CEOs who, according to their employees, have adapted to change, redefined visions and led with transparency while putting employee health and safety first.

Given the comprehensive nature of the industries covered, the inclusion of Sky Betting & Gaming CEO is testament to the gaming industry.
