WhatsApp Group Chat – Gamification in On-boarding

We’ve heard a lot about Gamification done to boost Talent Acquisitionist’s performance, how it can improve the KRAs and case studies where the results were positive and in keeping with the assumptions. While we’re impressed by the results and progress we’ve received due to Gamification.  Have you thought of other possibilities where Gamification could be implemented to boost performance?

If you haven’t thought about it yet then let’s start with examples where Gamification can be implemented; for instance in other areas of a Recruiter’s profile or to boost employee performance. As always we’re one step ahead of you thanks to our WhatsApp group members. We @SourcingAdda  conduct weekly discussions every Wednesday where we had a discussion on, “Gamification in On-boarding” upon the suggestion of our Pune group member Kavitha.

  • Apart from introducing New Joinees to various business lines you can distribute freebies such as company t-shirts or conduct games in the first week of joining in the office for newbies to interact in an unofficial part of on-boarding.
  • Send personalised gifts along with a letter to the new induct and have regular KITs along with short assignments.

Benefits of introducing Gamification in On-boarding

  • Conducting Gamification in on-boarding works well for the honeymoon stage of new hires
