Recently, the hype and buzz around gamification has showered us with statistics on how it can help engage employees, enhance their skills, and increase productivity in the workplace.
We have learned about several gamification success stories and controversies, but have failed to explore employees’ opinion on the innovative learning tool.
So, how do employees really feel about gamification and other engagement software in the workplace?
TechnologyAdvice randomly surveyed 398 employees to find out their thoughts on adding digital engagement elements to their work.
Some of their findings included:
- 70% of employees thought digital engagement programs would help at work
- 54% said they would be more willing to complete their tasks if they were gamified.
These findings are significant- they help make a case for the value in giving gamification in the workplace a try.
