Are you game for employee engagement?
The future of engagement will be so much less about punching a clock and so much more about logging on or checking in, enjoying play and work, getting good at something with great feedback to keep us moving to the next level, finding easy ways to make connections, to spend time with people we like, and acting as a part of something much bigger than ourselves.
Jan McGonigal offered this exceptional 20 minute video to get you thinking differently about employee engagement and our lives in the future. Games have become so much more than child’s play. To be fully engaged as adults we need to not only understand games but engage in games that are changing the ways and methods of engagement.

Games are much more than monopoly. We may learn much about engagement through games. Jane argues that current gaming offers us much to learn about engagement and happiness. Is your organization responding to the economy of engagement with:
- satisfying work to do
- being good at something
- spending time with people we like
- the chance to be a part of something bigger
