Dell is using gamification. Siemens uses Plantville, a computer game that simulates the running of a manufacturing facility. This fosters greater problem solving and efficiency among their workforce, while improving product knowledge.

IBM uses gaming principles to help their employees stay connected, it has also lowered the cost of IBM’s internal projects. As we wrote in our recent white paper on enterprise gamification, by involving their 400,000 global employees and awarding points to those who contributed to the translation efforts for some product manuals, IBM realized significant savings.

For these companies, and others, gamification is more than a recent buzzword. It’s an opportunity for improved employee engagement, talent development, and business performance.

I’d love you to read our white paper to learn how.
