Gamified Learning for Confidence, Retention, and Morale
Many companies are intrigued by gamification but don't know if it is right for them, feasible, or how they will get started. Gamified Learning for Confidence, Retention, and Morale will provide hands on experience allowing the participants to see how to implement and maintain a gamified learning program. This is a case study style class based on the results I've personally seen in my tenure as the Gamification Program Manager for Microsoft Store Support. I’ll be open and honest about the failures, and the successes, while focusing on how not to overwhelm your learners. Among the success stories, you’ll hear about learners engaged 97% of their workdays with some type of learning content, completing on average 90% of their content at a success rate of 87% or higher. In addition to soft skill improvements like being empathetic with customers, we also tackled reducing time to competency for new hires from 4-6 months to an average of 2 months. Wrapped into a pretty package by weaving morale and rewards into your learning experience, helping bridge the gap of connection in our new hybrid workplaces. You do not have to be part of a large organization for this session, or for my model, to work for your company. Participants are invited to learn through play and interaction, providing their own tips to the group. Bring a web connected device, mobile or PC, some means of taking notes, and be prepared to participate!
