Gamification and Employee Engagement:

Employees are more distracted than ever due to increased workplace demands and our always-on tech culture. At the same time, organizational technology and processes are designed to assume a “captive” audience of compliant workers when today’s most valuable team members are expected to be highly autonomous, independent and entrepreneurial. Set against this backdrop, smart organizations are using the power of games to bridge the gap between the 20th and 21st century workforce, using gamification and engaging technology to drive learning, teamwork, productivity and recruitment to new heights. In this talk, you’ll learn the secrets of driving sustained employee engagement and how gamification can transform your organization to be ready for the future based on examples, neuroscience and practical data.
