Goal Management: The Key to Long-Term Success
The tracking and aligning of business goals throughout the workplace has become pivotal to a company’s overall success.
To combat this perception, a number of new, revolutionary means to manage goals have been adopted by workplaces all across the globe, meeting various degrees of success.
#1: Gamify your workplace
The gamification of key work processes has been one such innovation that has been widely used in several workplaces looking to make goal management interactive. Despite still being in its early stages, the benefits of gamification have already been well documented, with employees enjoying reduced levels of work-related stress, higher levels of motivation and more accurate tracking of key goals, while keeping employees loyal and productive.
Gamification’s use of interactive and intuitive stimuli helps in motivating employees to achieve their own self-selected goals. (Ryan, R. M., & Deci, E. L. , 2000). In doing so, Gamification makes the process of tracking goals less intimidating through its more light-hearted approach to tackling real-world objectives.
