2020 will be remembered (aside from the pandemic), by the accelerated shift towards remote and flexible work practices.
One thing organizations and workers alike have learned during this time is that flexible work policies improve productivity, staff engagement, and overall job performance and happiness.
In the hopes of keeping employees engaged while working remotely, many CIOs and HR professionals have turned to gamification as a solution. Some leaders and executives believe that gamification can provide additional benefits to a distributed workforce.
Some organizations are using game-like elements to onboard new employees virtually; others are using various software platforms and solutions to have access to dashboards full of valuable insights and information on staff management and engagement.
Beyond this, gamification can provide organizations with an interactive tool for employees to learn about the company, its products, processes, culture, and purpose.
