Games are integral
part of our childhood. It is really wonderful if games get integrated into our
work life making it more fun and exciting .The concept gets more meaningful if
it serves a purpose of achieving an organisation goal too. In this era of
millennial workforce who are constantly on social media platforms and have the
latest technological gadgets at their disposal this shift towards a
gamification of management processes helps to ensure  new and innovative practises to engage
employees in their work. “Gamification” is an informal umbrella term for the
use of game elements in non-gaming systems to improve user experience and user
engagement (Deterding, 2011). Gamification connects game plan techniques and
game mechanisms in a non-game context. Game mechanics are rules and essence of a
game to make the play/task enjoyable. Game design is the process of using game
mechanics to create a setting that allow people playing a game to have an
enjoyable, thrilling and engaging experience. It imbibes a fun element to
tasks. The “game” side gets employees energized, while the business
side of it gives a deeper understanding into productivity .This is useful for
the top level managers and the employees. These games give impartial indicators
about an individual’s own output and efficiency. Employee engagement is the
positive feeling that employees have towards their jobs and also the
enthusiasm, sincerity, commitment and the effort they put into it.Its a concept
which needs to be measured round the clock with respect to an employee’s
career. Employees function very actively in their initial year’s .But slowly
this readiness and aggressiveness for tasks wanes. People get side tracked due
to routine work, boredom, lack of motivation and various other reasons. The
concept of gamification are specifically designed to activate human reward centers
which play a role in getting people motivated and ensure a real life experience
through video like simulations. The games designed for the employee player help
in bettering the skills and goals through the points, grades or ranks assigned
on meeting the objectives of the game. Gamification is a worthy tool for
ensuring engagement and inspiring employees. Employees indeed learn to
incorporate new ideas, mannerism, activities and ways to find solutions to
problems. Tailor -made games provide constructive feedback to increase
engagement. Tasks which seem tough are simplified for a totally stress free
learning. These games are thus fun but totally focused on the goals to be
achieved.
