Investing in the business leaders of tomorrow

The Slots Academy Delta Leadership Program is fast-tracking talent

15 talented colleagues selected from across MERKUR Casino, Regal Gaming Technologies and Blueprint Operations have started their journey on The Slots Academy Delta Leadership Program – an industry-first initiative which is the brain child of MERKUR UK General Manager Sascha Blodau.

The purpose of the Academy is to identify MERKUR UK’s business leaders of the future and develop their skills at a faster rate than they could achieve in their day-to-day roles in the business.

The Academy comprises a 45-week course which is completed over three rounds.
Round 1 of the Academy runs March to May 2024; Round 2 will take place September to November 2024 with Round 3 running March to May 2025.

Each round consists of six face-to-face team workshops, three team coaching virtual modules and a one-to-one personal development coaching session.

As well as industry specific topics such as safer gambling and compliance the Academy course also covers broader topics such as mindfulness, resilience and how to achieve a work/life balance.

Confirming the importance of the Academy Sascha Blodau stated: “We are committed to recruiting and retaining the very best talent and providing a stellar career path for individuals within each of the trading businesses.”

“There’s great enthusiasm and energy surrounding the Slots Academy which will benefit both the participants and ultimately the customers of MERKUR Group UK.“
