Gamification: The New-Age Method of Recruiting Candidates


The world of recruitment has evolved by leaps and bounds over the past decade, and is continuing to do so. From conducting video interviews via webcam to screening candidates using social-media platforms, HR officials around the globe are continually striving to make the process of hiring more efficient, cost-effective, and streamlined. And the latest trend in this ever-changing world of recruitment is gamification.

Organizations around the world are using gamification as a technique to increase engagement and motivation among their current and potential employees. The motive here is also to foster a culture of recognition and openness in a fun way.

A recent study from Gallup revealed that around 71% of American workers are either not engaged or actively disengaged in their work.
