As a CEO, you’re always seeking innovative ways to improve your business and drive employee/customers engagement.
Gamification has emerged as an effective strategy to motivate and retain both customers and employees. Duolingo, is a language learning app. Learning is difficult. Staying motivated is probably the hardest part of it.
The app owners managed to change the perception – instead of feeling like you are taking a course, the entire experience looks feels like a playing a computer game, utilizing the the most addictive “drug” – dopamine shots.
Here’s how you can leverage gamification to benefit your organization based on Dulingo model.
