To register: Gamification for Training and Onboarding: Deconstructing the Psychology of Games to Entice, Engage, and Encourage Employees
Wouldn’t it be great to know how to introduce a gaming dimension into the corporate training programs you design or deliver? What would it look like to include game elements to drive participation, engagement, retention, and to achieve a measurable ROI? This hands-on, presentation takes you through the 5-step process of gamifying a training or on boarding program.
Gamification of real-world training and development is a powerful technique which can motivate people and help generate loyalty to your organization, its products, and its message. At its core, Gamification is about finding the fun in the things that we have to do.
When learning is fun, people remember, apply, and return for more.
- Define your measurable business objectives and determine how Gamification will help you to achieve your objectives
• Weave analogies and stories to make the training stickable – so that players remember facts and transfer skills to real world scenarios
• Create the right mix of ingredients and next steps in your learning activities to allow the participants to acquire knowledge and skill
• Identify the game elements (points, badges, leaderboards, etc.) and game mechanics (chance, competition, collaboration, rewards, etc.) you will use
• Construct a consistent, attractive - even charming and captivating - cohesiveness that ties the entire project together
• Answer the question: Is it fun?
