Adding Gamification into the Oracle User Experience
By Kathryn Perry on Jan 24, 2013
No one should be surprised that our A-1 Oracle Applications User Experience team is exploring the use of gamification in the enterprise work space. Erika Webb, an expert on gamification within Oracle, explains in her blog post that gamification in the enterprise work space specifically focuses on a company’s business goals and addresses how to keep employees engaged in their work.
“Research shows that engaged employees produce more than unengaged employees because they are more involved in activities that make the company successful. According to a Gallup poll from 2001, engaged employees are also less likely to switch jobs,” she writes.
Employee engagement can affect a company’s bottom line so “it makes sense for the Oracle Applications User Experience team to work on how to get employees, whom we call users, more engaged in their work.” Gamification is one way to accomplish this goal.
