Gamification of tasks

People work harder if they are competing towards a goal or reward to be achieved and your employees are no different. According to Antreas Koutis: "Gamification is the use of game-like elements in non-game contexts, such as using points, badges, and leaderboards to encourage employees to achieve their goals. Gamification can also be used to engage employees in learning new skills or knowledge. There are many ways to gamify your HR program, but one of the most important things to keep in mind is that you need to make sure the games you create are fun and challenging"


Communication is Key

A number of factors such as inflation being on the rise, utilities prices, and the possibility of economic recessions have introduced doubt and uncertainty in the minds of employers and employees about the future.
