Gamification is quickly becoming a vital business strategy in the digital transformation arena. With more and more companies embracing digital technologies; there will be a strong roadmap to integrate gamification in the workplace. By harnessing the many entertaining aspects of games, such as involving badges, leaderboards, level progression and points for rewards, achievement, and recognition, companies can improve employee engagement, their retention and customer experience.
According to a company named, Markets and Markets, the Gamification industry will be worth $11.1 billion by the year 2020. Companies are incorporating eLearning games to give employees the opportunity to learn without realizing it; being able to compete amongst their peers and ‘level up,’ while still absorbing vital information. Companies will begin linking gamification to their business systems and operations, where game elements will be tethered to employee performance data. When implemented successfully, gamification can foster a collaborative environment for employees, ultimately delivering an increased measurable impact on a company’s bottom line. Providers will also use supplemented products for increased gamification advantages, like Fitbit working with insurance companies to offer clients insurance premiums based on health. The biggest impact of gamification will be felt in the Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) space because people are already actively engaged in apps and games.
