Enhance employee engagement, productivity, performance and retention with gamification. Gamification provides the strongest foundation for employee engagement and motivation by appealing to the intrinsic motivators that all humans share including mastery, autonomy, purpose and social interaction. Gamification is based on sound, evidence-based motivational principles that have been shown time and time again to result in higher employee satisfaction and increase overall performance.
Gamification provides data and reporting that helps both the organization’s management and its employees. It helps management visualize the key strengths of their teams in addition to areas that require further development. By setting clear goals and objectives, gamification also provides transparency to all team members by giving them the ability to monitor their performance in real time and receive immediate feedback on accomplishments.
Current HR challenges
Today, employee retention is harder than ever. The median tenure for workers aged 25 to 34 is only 3.2 years. And it’s not just a retention problem for HR, current problems facing HR teams include:
- Lack of engagement and motivation from employees, which hinders productivity
- Lack of recognition when employees achieve their goals or excel
- Lack of engagement between leadership and employees
- Lack of collaboration between teams
- Lack of a clear career path for employees
- Lack of employee option and feedback mechanisms to make their voices count
- Employees don’t see a career path or know how to advance
HR teams as well as executive leadership must recognize the need for innovative approach that can address and solve these challenges.
When done strategically, gamification in the workplace can help improve business results in various ways, which include:
- Boosting employee productivity and performance
- Increasing employee engagement, motivation, satisfaction and retention
- Decreasing time and cost through the employee onboarding process
- Increasing stickiness of the information learned.
- Increasing employee knowledge sharing.
Do more than train. Engage, inspire and motivate.
Starting a new job is a stressful experience for new employees as well as the company responsible for the onboarding process. Working in a new environment with new people in addition to the skills and behaviours that one needs to change or develop can be quite a stressful ordeal.
Onboarding possible issues:
- Lack of information
- Excessive Information
- Unstructured information
- Lack of proactivity of newcomers
- Improper expectation management
- Lack of feedback
- Lack of information reinforcement
Preparing the modern employee for the workplace requires providing more than traditional learning and training.

This ensures employees are better prepared and are at high satisfaction levels for their roles in helping your organization reach its goals and objectives.

What is Gamification?
Gamification is the methodology of applying effective game design techniques and mechanics to engage and motivate people in non-game activities. In simpler terms, gamification is about driving engagement to achieve desired business results.
For years, game designers have used motivational game design techniques and mechanics to design highly engaging gaming experiences. Gamification uses those same game techniques and mechanics that leverage our love of competition, collaboration, and reward and applies them to non-game activities to create powerful tools for business that can be leveraged internally for employees or externally for customers and partners.
The goal of Gamification is to motivate people to change behaviours, to develop skills or to drive innovation. It focuses on enabling players to achieve their goals—and consequently the organization achieves its goals.
Using games and play to achieve real-world goals does not imply that seriousness will be taken away from the activities being accomplished. Instead, it means that these activities must be designed in ways that leave space for playful minds to experiment and create innovative solutions, for gameful minds to take on challenges that will lead to the accomplishment of quite difficult goals, and for many people to cooperate in ways that will allow the accomplishment of greater goals that would not be possible with the efforts of one person alone.
