If you've ever played the slots at a casino or Candy Crush on your phone, you know that the rush of getting a game reward can be a strong motivation to keep playing. The same is true in business – gamification activities can be a big incentive for employees to achieve company goals.
According to psychologist James Madigan, when participants overcome a game challenge to receive a reward, their brain triggers the release of a pleasure-inducing chemical called dopamine. The hormone is addictive, and in the workplace it can help make employees more motivated and productive.
That's why many of our fun group activities use gamification. We've structured them with clear goals, obstacles that challenge employees, and provide instant feedback for successful participants. You can challenge your team with two types of employee gamification activities: active games where players compete physically, and cerebral puzzle games that are a battle of wits.
If your team enjoys brainy board games like Craninum and Trivial Pursuit, they'll love our employee gamification activities that focus on problem solving. You can get employees thinking with a fun mental exercise that includes challenging riddles, puzzles, and brainteasers.
Many of our most popular cerebral activities include game mechanics like points and a live leaderboard to inspire a friendly competition as well. There's nothing like a little rivalry to get the brain juices flowing! In Team Pursuit, for example, teams try to solve the most clues in categories like mental, skill, physical, and mystery.
Cerebral activities are perfect for teams who like to work out their minds, not their bodies. Check out our full list of cerebral employee gamification activities in Houston.
