What is the importance of Gamification in corporate training?

As Gamification provides a learning journey that enables having fun while learning, the learners welcome it. However, L&D teams who invest in it still have reservations on the value, impact, or the ROI of this spend.

Nevertheless, we can’t deny the fact that the success of any learning strategy is measured by the effectiveness of its application. If you create a Gamification concept that can capture and hold learners’ attention, challenge them, engage and ensure they complete the journey, plus teach them – this will indeed deliver the desired impact. Thus, well-designed Gamification based trainings provide value to organizations as well as learners at many levels.

How do learners respond to Gamification for learning?

Recognition and rewards matter to all of us and using these cues to have a learning journey where you can have “fun as you learn” resonates with the learners. Well-crafted Gamification concepts provide high value for the learners translating to higher motivation and engagement, creating more immersive learning journeys, facilitating a sticky learning experience, and flexibility – which can be used to facilitate application, practice for proficiency gain, and influence thinking and drive behavioral change.

Why should organizations and L&D teams consider Gamification for corporate training?

The appropriate use of Gamification helps meet learning outcomes – at par with other learning strategies. It creates better recall and retention and leads to better completion rates. An engaging learning journey helps learners achieve greater learning outcomes more effectively as compared to a traditional training approach.

How can EI help you create the desired impact through Gamification?

At EI, we have a very mature Gamification practice. Our focus has always been on using techniques that enable us to create higher learner engagement, immersive learning approaches, and sticky learning. We can help you with learning experiences that are packed with reinforcement, challenges that stimulate a refresh or review of primary learning resources, practice zones for proficiency gain, trigger change in thinking, and finally, influence behavioral change.
