The gamification of the workplace

Gamification – horrible term. Where do they think these words up? So, what is it? Is it a GenY focused motivational tool or is it reinventing the way employees of all ages learn and retain info? Looking at the name alone you could be forgiven for thinking it is some form of GenY psychobabble, but put this to one side.

The debate will continue, not helped by a typical zeal for hyperbole – “Integrating game dynamics into your site, service, community content or campaign, in order to drive participation” is how gamification.org describe this new movement. However I think we are overthinking the obvious.
