2. Standardizing onboarding process for employees working remotely

With remote work becoming the new norm, it's crucial to have a standardized onboarding process that bridges the physical gap. Gamified learning offers a cohesive and engaging experience for remote hires, ensuring they feel connected and empowered from day one.

3. Boost employee engagement with captivating experiences.

“Gamification is an ancient art. The most ancient example of that is chess, where people were taught maneuvers of wars without taking them to the field”

Traditional onboarding methods often fall short in capturing employees' attention and fostering genuine engagement. Gamification injects fun and excitement into the learning process, driving higher levels of participation and retention.

How are HR Leaders at brands activating it?

Case Study: Zydus Wellness

Zydus Wellness is onboarding its employees with gamified environments. Infact, their experience was built with constant feedback from the teams and new hires - evaluating their experience, and building what excited them.

Here's how Zydus Wellness gamified their onboarding:

  • Interactive mascot: Zylo, the company mascot, guides new hires through the brand presence and product range in an engaging, interactive environment.
  • Gamified modules: Each learning module is transformed into a game, where employees collect coins for completing tasks.
  • Leaderboards and perks: Friendly competition is fostered through leaderboards, motivating employees to learn and achieve. HR leaders can track performance and offer perks for reaching targets.

The results:

Increased engagement: Employees reported feeling more engaged and motivated with the interactive learning experience.
