How can businesses motivate and engage employees? When employees are motivated and engaged, they perform better. Companies can drive employees to reach higher levels of accountability and performance by integrating game elements in the workplace. This technique, called Gamification, incentivizes employees to achieve objectives by encouraging competition and introducing rewards.
Gamification can improve business performance for companies with teams of sales agents, customer service representatives, and more. With leaderboards on display for all to see, employees can monitor not only their own progress and achievements but also those of their colleagues with whom they can compete for the top spots.
For example, insurance agents can vie for the top spot in the number of calls made to potential clients. Tech support agents can compete with their co-workers for averaging the least amount of time spent on the phone to resolve customer issues. Gamification does not limit competition to individuals. Businesses can use gamification to inspire competition between groups as well. Teams in different locations, for example, can compete against each other.
