Employers nationwide are facing a significant employee engagement challenge. Less than a third of U.S. workers who participated in a Gallup survey earlier this year reported that they were fully engaged in their jobs.
That’s an alarming statistic with massive implications for productivity and employee retention. But a recent Badgeville survey of more than 500 workers (executive level to frontline employees) points the way to a solution: workplace Gamification.
Gamification is a major trend today: The survey, conducted in July 2015, found that an astonishing 78% of employees are now using game-based motivation at work and, of those using Gamification, over 91% say Gamification increases engagement, awareness, and productivity.
