What is Employee Engagement?Employee engagement created by strong managers

Engagement is the mindset, state and phenomenon in which a staff member or participant in an activity is fully focused and committed on the task; willingly and positively, with self-motivation to apply themselves fully to delivering the required results.

When someone is performing a task they don’t enjoy, don’t really want to do, but feel obligated to do so, they are clearly not engaged.

So What is Gamification?

Gamification is the process of modeling the tasks at hand around a game of some sort  While it works for training of staff, it is really effective for daily work life as well.

So, could you apply Gamification to increase your Employee Engagement?


So in addition to gamification in your workplace, some additional approaches and actions to increasing your staff engagement include:

  • constant and open 2-way communication ,
  • improving line-of-sight for employees,
  • establishing and communicating a shared vision

  • Building team spirit
  • Developing a positive culture
  • Creating incremental growth experiences and career path
  • Celebrating and rewarding achievement

An attentive manager is a key component of high-performing teams. The data show that people who feel cared about are less likely to miss workdays, less likely to have accidents on the job, less likely to file workers’ compensation claims, less likely to steal, less likely to quit, and more likely to advocate the company to friends and family.
