Gaming Industry: GLI Africa Reaches Landmark Milestones

1 share

Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) in Africa  has reached a landmark milestone with 100 employees now based in the South Africa office to support GLI customers in Africa and across the globe. In the last 12 months alone, GLI Africa has hired a further 58 employees to keep up with customer  demand for testing and certification from GLI’s team of experts.  

The quickly expanding team has also resulted in the physical extension of GLI’s state-of-the-art  laboratory and office, which opened in Midrand, Johannesburg in 2017. The additional 400 square  meters were needed to make room for all the new employees and increase the capacity within  the laboratory to ensure GLI can continue to deliver to customers’ expectations.  

Devon Dalbock, General Manager of GLI Africa, said, “GLI was the first gaming test lab to be set up  in South Africa with just a handful of employees in 1996. Since then, we have continued to invest  in the South Africa operation, and reaching this important milestone is a real success story for us.  Like many places, Johannesburg was hit hard by the pandemic with rising unemployment levels. We are proud of the fact we retained all staff during the pandemic and have been able to create  new job opportunities for so many talented individuals to work on projects not only in Africa but in  jurisdictions across the world.” 

“It’s also great news for our customers in Africa that they have access to local experts who  understand the complexities and challenges of the market here, but also have a global team  working with them who can offer insights and expertise about markets in Europe, Latin America, Asia, Australia, and the USA.” 

When Kailin Hank joined GLI Africa as a Maths Analyst, she had no idea that she would become  an important part of GLI Africa’s history by becoming the 100th employee. Kailin joined the team,  having worked part-time as a mathematics tutor at underprivileged schools in Johannesburg,  aiming to inspire young people.

She explains why she decided to join GLI, “When I first learned about GLI, I was attracted to how  much the company strives with work ethics and their global commitment to give back to  communities. I was also excited to see how I could use the skills and experience I obtained as a  graduate and integrate that with GLI’s vision. What I enjoy most about my job is the fact that every  day is different and an opportunity to learn and grow, not forgetting the amazing office  environment. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming, and I am glad to be a part of the GLI  family.” 

Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) in Africa was also recently awarded a certificate of  recognition from the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) for maintaining its  continuous accreditation for more than 20 years.
