Internal gamification is a big deal. 70% of employees are disengaged from their employers and engaged staff are 3x more creative, and 31% more productive. Companies with engaged teams can out perform their competitors by 202% – which is why getting engagement right is key. We’ve found some internal gamification examples and offerings which might help spark creative ideas for your business.
