Mona Garland has been named the new Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) of Scientific Games as the firm seeks to expand its global employee base.

The experienced human resources leader will steer global strategy along with employee-focused programmes and initiatives, including talent acquisition and retention, learning and development, diversity, equity and inclusion, compensation and benefits, employee engagement, and workplace culture.

Garland most recently served as Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer at a global building materials organisation, and she has more than 25 years of experience building and implementing HR strategies, programmes and infrastructure.

Pat McHugh, CEO for Scientific Games, commented: “Our people are our greatest asset in serving our customers. Mona is a dynamic leader with a passion for coaching and developing talent to evolve organisations.

“We look forward to the tremendous impact she and our Human Resources team will have on our current employees, as well as expanding and further diversifying our workforce for the continued growth of our global business.”

Scientific Games’ 3,000 employees are located at 40+ technology and operational centres, production facilities, game design studios, and offices spanning five continents.

The company’s commitment to expansion has been as evident as ever over the past few months, notably securing the rights of instant scratch and digital lottery games across 24 territories for the ‘Deal or No Deal’ game show brand this month.
