A recent survey indicates that employee engagement is one of the top issues facing organizations today. Effective employee engagement programs move employees through four stages: education, inspiration, commitment to changed behavior, and reward and recognition. The emerging use of a technique called Gamification transcends all four of these stages and is a powerful tool to engage and inspire employees in a fun and exciting way.

Join us as we share a proven process for creating a highly engaged and inspired workforce, using Gamification as a powerful tool in the process. In addition to exploring this emerging trend in Gamification, we will look at how that tool fits into an approach that defines an effective engagement program. We’ll share the work we are doing with Walmart and McDonald’s on Gamification. Inward Strategic Consulting is a pioneer and thought leader in the field of internal alignment and employee engagement and has a proven, codified process that walks employees through the four stages leading to powerful results.

  • Best practices in the field of internal alignment and engagement
  • The power of Gamification as a tool to engage employees in an exciting and fun manner.
