078 – Workplace Gamification | Rebecca Metter

On today’s Gut + Science, we’re answering your questions by talking with a CEO whose mission is to create meaningful interactions between people as a way to create real and lasting change.

Rebecca Metter is the CEO of Wambi, LLC, a digital healthcare employee recognition platform that improves patient satisfaction and safety. It’s the first gamified system that significantly increases employee engagement.

Truth You Can Act On:

  1. Start with the end in mind: Define the problem or goal you want to solve then start building the gamification technique.
  2. Make the mundane fun: Gamification is a great way to do this but most important is to make life at work fun.
  3. Ensure key stakeholders are involved at all levels: Everyone in the organization needs to know the Why, why they’re doing it and how it helps them.
  4. Be careful on competition: Don’t let it get too far or it could become unhealthy.
