In the newly created role, which reports into chief people officer Caroline Ross, McCaw has been tasked with developing and executing Flutter’s inclusion and diversity strategy.
He will work with the board, business leaders and his colleagues in human resources to devise training and development opportunities for all colleagues. He will also chair the Inclusion and Diversity Committee to monitor and report on progress towards its objectives.
“Stepping into this newly created role is beyond doubt one of the most exciting opportunities I have ever embarked on,” McCaw said.
“Already I’ve seen a willingness and commitment to developing a strong strategy for inclusion and diversity at all levels within this organisation, especially from senior leaders, where it can make a real impact.”
Before taking on his new role, McCaw served as head of inclusion and people engagement for Flutter’s Sky Betting & Gaming subsidiary.
In that role he worked closely with its management to build an inclusion strategy that was commended in the All-in Diversity Project’s All-Index 2019 report last year.
Prior to joining Sky Betting & Gaming, McCaw worked for fashion retailer New Look. As senior HR business partner for the UK and Ireland, he worked with external organisations such as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights charity Stonewall and the Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (ENEI) to further diversity and inclusion efforts.
“I’m delighted to welcome Greg to the team,” Flutter’s chief people officer Ross said. “He brings a wealth of experience, which the wider group will benefit from as we continue to shape our inclusion and diversity strategy.
“Our goal is for all colleagues to feel a shared sense of ownership in our business,” Ross continued. “We want to build on our foundations to be a truly inclusive place to work, one where difference is celebrated and valued, because it is only when we all understand the role we play that will we really shift the dial. I’m really excited about what we can achieve together.”
