Gaming for Good
What about getting employees engaged in sustainability through interactive gaming?
According to a recent GreenBiz article, SAP has used a game called TwoGo to help employees in Germany identify carpooling buddies through a game that matches up their routes and timing. Further, according to a recent survey, 55 percent of Americans would like to work for companies that use gamification as an incentive to boost productivity. Deloitte is also playing in this space by designing a game that teaches players to create more sustainable initiatives in the business and logistics industry.
Social networks are quickly becoming prime platforms for gaming and engagement--rather than losing employee productivity from these sites, companies could capitalize off them by creating productive ways for employees to engage with each other and advance sustainability within the firm.
