If you’ve ever wondered why video games skyrocket in adoption, it’s because they’re created with a complex behavioral science foundation and psychology behind the scenes. For L&D professionals, these same principles can become practice through gamification, allowing you to take your initiatives to the next level. But before blindly jumping on the new, shiny-toy bandwagon, it’s important to understand what a successful gamification strategy entails and how to ultimately drive behavior change.

Before getting carried away with the gamification hype, it’s crucial for L&D professionals to understand that there’s more to it than just badges and leaderboards. This session will dive into the innovative ways businesses are using game-based mechanics, aesthetics, and game thinking to impact employees from day one: onboarding. You’ll explore the steps you can take to incorporate gamification into onboarding to create engaged and motivated employees, leading to increased productivity and retention.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What the core drivers of motivation are, and how they relate to gamification
  • How to thoughtfully implement gamification into onboarding and L&D programs
  • What to avoid when implementing gamification strategies
  • How gamification can increase engagement and impact productivity

Audience:

Designers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
