Gamification, a motivational tool that companies are increasingly using.
Definition: “Gamification” is the transfer of game mechanisms in other areas, especially websites, learning situations, work situations or social networks. Its purpose is to increase the acceptability and the use of these applications by relying on the human predisposition to the game. This technique makes it possible to obtain people behaviors that could be regarded as irrelevant. We usually do not want to do it: filling out a questionnaire, buying a product, watching advertisements or assimilating information.
Employee engagement at work is a key factor in the success of a business. From the point of view of researching the performance and upgrading skills of your sales teams or customer loyalty, gamification then appears as an effective solution to the involvement and motivation of communities.
