Game mechanics motivate staff

By Michelle Hammond

Business start-up to motivate staffMotivating and empowering staff can be a tough job, particularly in a sector like sales.

 

 

There’s a new web service on the market called Deal Machine, which utilises game mechanics to give immediate feedback to a sales team, increasing their knowledge of what they are doing and what they should be doing differently.

 

A Finnish start-up, Deal Machine allows sales managers to adjust the mechanics in real time to change the focus of their team on a daily basis, enabling fast learning.

 

There are multiple plans and prices available so sales managers can tailor their usage of the service.

 

Imagine the impact of a business like Deal Machine – it could be taken beyond the sales sector into the realms of education, and business as a whole.

 

An Australian start-up could broaden this concept to new sectors, or focus on the B2B market by developing a host of innovative workplace tools to boost employee performance.
