Learning management system software does not have to be boring. With over 75 percent of people in the United States counting themselves as gamers, there shouldn’t be any reason why your organization can’t adopt gamification as part of your engagement strategy.
Here are three of the most popular ways restaurants can use gamification to increase employee engagement.
- Leaderboards. Your employees thrive on gamification. A survey showed that 62 percent of people said they would be motivated to learn if leaderboards were involved and they had the opportunity to compete with their colleagues.
- Badges and Certificates. You might think badges and internal certificates are cheesy, but your employees think otherwise. Badges are wanted by almost everyone- in fact, 89 percent of people say they would be more engaged in e-learning applications if they had point systems.
- Discussion Boards. Your employees want to be heard and discussion boards give them a way to do that. With this “central hub,” your employees can chime in anytime, helping each other out with questions, offering words of encouragement or giving a virtual fist bump.
