Well-designed Gamification based trainings provide help to both organizations and learners at many levels.
The value from the learner’s perspective: The value Gamification based trainings bring in is re-affirmed by user feedback too. I list part of the findings from Talent LMS’s Gamification at work survey in 2018:
- 80% of employees enjoy using Gamification software at work.
- Employees feel that Gamification makes them more productive (87%), more engaged (84%) and happier (82%) at work.
- 75% of respondents who play games often were more likely to agree that they’d be more productive if their work was made more game-like.
- Older employees are more motivated by game elements than younger employees.
The value from the organizational perspective: The use of Gamification for learning provides several benefits to L&D teams:
- Gamification is a very engaging learning strategy and when crafted right, it helps the L&D teams meet the learning outcomes (similar to other strategies used in traditional eLearning).
- Because of a higher engagement quotient, a Gamification strategy provides higher completion rates as well as a better recall and retention.
- Gamification can be applied to meet various cognition levels—to help learners learn, practice, apply, or upskill. When applied over a period of time (spaced repetition), it can trigger the desired behavioral change.
