Gamification features have been newly integrated into Neudesic Pulse (News - Alert) 4.1 social business software to enhance human capital management (HCM) and employee engagement functionalities. Neudesic is a technology services company offering a full suite of mobility strategies and solutions.
Pulse 4.1 will feature customized gamification which allows the creation of badges for achievement recognition in addition to allowing manual or automated award designations to individuals, based on configurable performance criteria.
Ramin Vosough, vice president, product sales and marketing at Neudesic said, “Employee recognition is a powerful tool that can significantly impact a company’s bottom line. Whether it’s peer-to-peer or management-to-employee, acknowledgement of a job well-done can chart the course for future success and job satisfaction.”
This addition will enable employers and employees to figure out who the high performing employees are. The badging or gamification within the social collaboration software highlights individuals for accomplishments such as achieving a target, displaying a positive attitude or showing consistency in performance.
Users will benefit from fun and challenging methods that drive innovative initiatives which will also help in changing behavior and in developing skills, opine officials.
“When employees are singled out for their contributions, they have a deeper sense of pride and a greater stake in the outcome. As a result, they are more engaged, willing to put forth the effort and happier in the workplace,” Vosough added.
Depending on the type of business, corporate culture and employee initiatives, management officials can customize awards with the help of Pulse 4.1 which is highly flexible. Also Pulse 4.1 offers complete control over badge configuration, UI, audience and so on. Badges can be either manually or automatically awarded to employees based on configurable criteria like milestones, activity or participation level.
Recently Neudesic was selected by Xamarin, maker of cross-platform mobile development tools, to its Premier Consulting Partner program. This relationship allows Neudesic clients to leverage Xamarin’s development tools to deliver enterprise and consumer apps across the Android (News - Alert) and iOS platforms.
