The purpose of gamification is to increase employee participation,
interest, and loyalty by adding game-like elements. We want to find
ways to gamify corporate wellness so your employees stay captivated
and seek out all of the benefits of corporate wellness intervention.
We are all about gamification, as we provide you and your employees
with both access via website and our primary phone application platform.
Through both accessibilities, your company can use online tracking or
incentive tracking, and you can compare many of these features to those
of other employees.
Now what does this do? It creates a competition-like atmosphere which
has shown play an influence of a person’s success or sometimes failure.
According to a study performed from The New England Journal of Medicine,
“a person’s chances of becoming obese increased by 57% if he or she had
a friend who became obese in a given interval”. Likewise, competition
within a workforce could positively impact employee participation.
Following are examples of ways we could add gamification:
Create contests and company-wide activities
Implements a step-program
Offer a lottery as incentive to take part in our wellness program
Have quizzes to tell knowledge of wellness
Supply step-trackers to see who takes the most steps in a given week
The most successful gamification of wellness programs are incentive-based,
so as an employer, you may have to give a little to get a lot. Having
an incentive in mind helps people set a goal and have a reason to work
for the goal, which is the reward. Corporate wellness programs will work
with you to figure out what type of incentives would be appropriate for
your company, and then figure out a way they can incorporate gamification
to increase employee engagement!
