P’Oplympic Games: How to inject fun and engagement when implementing an HR system

Implementing a new HR system? 'Well that has to be boring and tedious!' I hear you say. So let me show you how Schibsted – a tech company (obviously!) was able to make it fun by using game elements to launch their new HR system and engaged even the most cynical participants.

In this session, you will see examples of how we transformed an HR initiative into engaging gamified activities. Through this approach, we leveraged the power of our audience and empowered self-learning en masse whilst enjoying lots of fun and generating plenty of friendly banter!
