News : Gamification of NFL Football Season Gains Positive Returns for Contact Centers
Indianapolis, IN, USA, May, 2016 -- Employee attendance, morale, disengagement, turnover, and overall performance are unique challenges for contact centers, in which wages and employee skill levels are often low (in many cases, due to very high turnover), and the work itself can be stressful and monotonous. Gamification is proving to be an effective business strategy in motivating employees and improving business results for contact centers across every industry sector.
TouchPoint One, a provider of employee engagement and performance management solutions for contact centers, recently launched A-GAME Gridiron, its football-themed competition aligned with the National Football League’s regular and postseason timetable. A cloud-based gamification program, A-GAME was designed to leverage structured, league-based competition to inspire, motivate and recognize contact center performance at the individual and team levels.
A-GAME works so that gamification initiatives are aligned with the business objectives of each participating organization. In addition to league championships, data-driven recognition and award options for outstanding performance or improvement, most valuable or improved player, coach of the year, and other incentives are available and easily configured by each organization’s "league commissioner."
The business impact of the A-GAME gamification platform is an important aspect of its design. Participating organizations are able to track improvements in balanced scores and specific KPIs such as attendance, quality, retention, schedule adherence, utilization and sales/collections, as well as the range of customer experience metrics.
