Gamification For Talent Development: Key Design Principles Proven To Drive Learning Success

About This Course:
Gamification isn’t just about points, leaderboards, and badges. Games and gamification can be a powerful tool for organizational talent development, improving reactions and learning and transfer. In addition, HR and learning officers may seize the opportunity to gamify learning assessments so to create a more comfortable, effective, and even stealthy learning environment…employees won’t even realize they’re being assessed!

Gamification for training designers can improve learner satisfaction and learner retention, and some types of gamification can even increase knowledge and skill gains among employees.

The right gamification can be a huge asset to HR and training professionals, but the difficult part is implementing “proper design.” Your goals as the trainer, communication with the employee, and the proverbial toolkit you use will all play a part in whether your experience is a success.

Thankfully, with a few science-driven recommendations, you can be on your way to an effective learning and development program that leverages gamification. Join us for an in-depth webinar on how different organizations are using gamification as a talent development technique and how, when properly designed, it can work for your organization.
