1. Establish specific learning outcomes. Gamification is fun, but it shouldn’t only be fun. You also need to consider exactly what you’re trying to achieve.
2. Design reward systems related to the real world. Once your learners have mastered the desired content, you want this knowledge to translate into job performance.
3. Make gamification social. Collaboration is one of the greatest benefits of gamification, so be sure to take advantage! Make the experience as social as possible for your learners, whether this means forming teams, competing, displaying and discussing the leaderboard, etc.
4. Make gamification challenging. Ensure that your gamification is challenging enough to push your learners to the next level. Training that’s too easy will be ineffective and dull.
5. Gamify induction and onboarding. Induction and onboarding is notoriously boring, so this is one type of training you may want to gamify. Many companies now have new employees create a virtual identity and complete missions, each related to some element of induction and onboarding training.
6. Gamify skills training. You can take a similar approach to gamifying skills training. Learners face virtual challenges, receive learning support, and gain badges or points at each level.
7. Gamify instructor led training (ILT). The easiest way to gamify ILT is through gamified assessments, such as Kahoot! Kahoot! allows you to create your own quiz based on the key information that you want your learners to know.

1. Form Teams and Competitions. While sales can seem like a field where it’s every man for himself, trainees can benefit from teamwork. The first benefit is the delegation of responsibility.
2. Problem-Solving Scenarios. There’s nothing like a little practical work to train your staff and set standards of excellence. Serious games can be immensely helpful
3. Establish the Right Metrics. One of the main obstacles remote teams face are communication problems. When your sales reps can’t chat by the water cooler and get to know each other as people (as they usually would in an office), they may not trust each other.
4. Reward Product and Culture Knowledge. Another important part of sales training is product and culture knowledge. Even if you’re working with virtual teams, you still have to make sure they’re adhering to the standards of your company culture.
5. Creating Virtual Identities and Completing Missions. Everyone loves games not just because they’re fun, but because they can be in someone else’s shoes for a while.
6. Roleplaying Customer Personas. Another fun way of training your sales staff on different customer personas they’ll be speaking to is through roleplaying.
7. Tangible Rewards. Your teams may be virtual, but your rewards have to be tangible. The best way to motivate and retain the sales staff you are currently training is to use Spinify’s gamified system of tracking and rewarding behavior.

1. Uncovering Existing Metrics. It’s too easy to confuse gamification with game-like mechanics. Gamification doesn’t require any narrative filter, just a sense of progression and reward.
2. Incentivizing Teams To Attain Goals. I use scorecards with every team I manage. I’ve used a scorecard or scoreboard to set a goal for a team to complete such things as a certain number of unit tests within a week.
3. Motivating Individual And Collective Behavior. From my perspective, the optimal way to leverage gamification is to reward both collective and individual behavior.
4. Increasing User Engagement. Gamification within a product makes the user experience more engaging and personalized. Especially for business-to-business, software-as-a-service solutions, games can transform ordinary business processes into tools for team motivation and appreciation.
5. Improving Online Visibility. To increase the online visibility of Nike, the brand created a system of points that people received for their sports achievements.
6. Getting People To Talk. A good tech company should be holding retrospectives on a regular basis. It can be difficult to get people to talk about failures and wins in a meaningful way.
7. Improving Tech Adoption. While implementing a new CRM system, our firm created a game to score users on their adoption (e.g., points were awarded for entering an opportunity).
8. Encouraging Employee Social Media Participation. We’ve seen significant results through the gamification of employee participation on social media. We use an employee engagement platform for social media that puts competition front and center through visible leaderboards where everyone can see how their participation stacks up.
9. Reinforcing Socially Conscious Office Policies. Everyone in the office wants to follow the rules, but occasionally they may slip up when working in a hurry or juggling multiple activities.
10. Making Boring Things Fun. We’ve used gamification for a variety of things: social events, migrating systems, finding bugs, etc. While this has worked well, we use it cautiously as it can sometimes distract when people “play the game” instead of committing to the purpose.

1. Cybersecurity awareness training is boring. It can be boring, at least the way most organizations do it. Make it more exciting, vary it, and make it a game.
2. Employees don’t understand the importance of security awareness training. Most end-users don’t understand the importance of security awareness training.
3. Security awareness training isn’t personal. If you want to make someone care, make it personal. Don’t just train them for protecting your business. Let employees know you care about them and their families.
4. Security awareness training isn’t timely. Make sure your security awareness training program is personalized, targeted to the user’s role, and appropriate for the time of the season.
5. Security awareness training feels punitive. A lot of employees have told me how security awareness training seems one-sided and punitive. They have to take the training in a certain amount of time or they’ll get in trouble.

1. Set the right tone at the top. All cyber-savvy organizations have one thing in common – a strong tone at the top. Their top leadership role model expected attitudes, beliefs and practices.
2. Create psychological safety. Another important factor is promoting psychological safety. Employees must freely and openly question deep-seated norms and raise concerns without fearing negative repercussions.
3. Leverage technology to minimize human error. But cyber awareness programs aren’t silver bullets. No matter your efforts, there will always be one unassuming employee who clicks a weaponized phishing link and accidentally opens a backdoor for threat actors to cripple high-value systems.
4. Gamify cybersecurity. Most people would rather queue up at the post office, file tax returns or go to the dentist than attend mandatory security training.
