5 ways to gamify rewards in the workplace

Published by

A recent report published by workplace incentives and rewards provider One4all Rewards showed that the majority of UK workers would welcome a gamified approach to rewards.

Reacting to the results, below, the company offers five top tips on how you can implement such as system from deciding on what's rewarded to maintaining the arrangement.

 

Stick to budget

*

These needn’t be costly – scale them to budget, and ensure they will appeal to a broad range of demographics within the workforce. Products which give the gift of choice – such as multi-store gift cards - are great for this.

 

Decide which behaviours will be rewarded

*

Rewards might be given out for fixed actions (such as rewards for hitting a sales target), surprise or unexpected rewards handed out by management to those doing a good job, peer-led rewards (where groups of employees nominate a colleague to receive a reward for a reason they decide), random rewards for completing tasks or rolling lottery-style rewards (e.g. workers who hit target will be put into a lottery or raffle to receive a reward). In terms of frequency, monthly is most popular.

 

Introduce and explain

*

Hold a company meeting or a series of departmental meetings to introduce the new system, clearly spelling out how workers can expect to unlock rewards. Provide handouts or follow up with an email to reinforce how the system works.

 

Create a hub or league table

*

Provide a way of workers tracking their progress – this could be as simple as a notice board in the office, a portal on a reward system provider’s website, or even a dedicated section of the company intranet.

 

Communicate regularly

*

Share regular updates on how many rewards they have received – or how many points building up to a reward they have earned.
