Future of work: Gamification masterclass
Games are the new normal" - Al Gore

In today's digital and engagement driven environments, the elements that have made gaming 'fun' and 'addictive' for centuries, are making their way into corporates. Furthermore, with the influx of the millennials into the workplace, this is particularly impacting the HR function within organisations.

HR finally has the opportunity to adopt gamification to impact behaviour change in all engagement processes, ranging from pre-recruitment engagement, through the recruitment process, candidates assessment, induction/on-boarding programmes, learning and development, training, collaboration, as well as retention strategies.

Gamification elements also provide the 'fun' to increase innovation and design implementation, using concepts like competition, incentives and progressive reward structures for employees.

Gamification provides the opportunities to promote inclusivity for HR, leadership, managers, employees and millennials.

GIBS will be running a 1-day interactive basic (level 1) masterclass on Future of Work: Gamification and seats are limited. Save the date and book early to secure your seat at this not-to-be-missed event.

Benefits and reasons to attend

You will gain experience of a robust gamification scaffholding - through the Purposeful Play Portal (P3)- the gamification framework that will enable you to launch a gamification initiative within your organisation.

You will be able to go back and apply gamification into your organisation and ultimately, meet your business objectives.

Who should attend

This masterclass will benefit managers and executives from the HR function and/or IT operations who intend to adopt and implement gamification in the work environment.
