Developing Virtual Tournaments to Engage and Recognize your People
My team have been implementing global, virtual tournaments for 7 years, with participation growing year on year. The topic of our tournament is as dry as they come – what are our global service offerings we provide to our clients? Starting as a national competition, it has grown to an engaging event in more than 35 countries, attracting more than 8,000 participants each year. We have mixed it up to include not just a quiz functionality, but also side activities to boost participation and points. While it is a fun and rewarding event, it can take a large amount of work to get it right.
During this session, I will discuss: • Why the tournament is important for our people • Why the tournament is important for my team • The process of developing our campaign and implementation
By the end of the session, I hope you will have some ideas on how you could run your own virtual (or in-person) tournament
