Employee Well-Being Is Serious Business—But Gamification Can Make It Fun, And Build Team Morale
The pandemic has helped shine a light on the critical importance of employee well-being. A growing number of business leaders now recognize that promoting employee well-being is essential to their success and sustainability. As I wrote about last month, companies that prioritize employee well-being will develop reputations as “great places to work,” enabling them to attract and retain top talent.
But taking employee well-being seriously does not mean it cannot be fun. In fact, applying game-playing elements—including contests and rewards— to a serious work environment can effectively increase motivation and employee engagement and improve employee well-being outcomes.
