The ‘Gamification’ of the Office Approaches. Will Software That Awards Compliant Employees Boost Morale or Deflate It?

The Wall Sreet Journal- January 18, 2014

Envision that every one of your professional endeavors was meticulously tracked and measured in points, that there were levels to complete and you were given prizes for excellence. That every workplace action provided a tangible sensation of winning or losing as part of a system engineered to keep you addicted, thrilled to come back… If your job worked like that, would you become a better employee? Or would you feel just the opposite—crushed by metrics, constantly watched over, infantilized by your boss’s attempt to turn you into an automaton?

Work is measured and scored for every user.
A perpetual game of “Winner or Loser.”
