Advantages of gamification

  • To address the issues of sustainable development, companies will be confronted with the challenges of training and developing their teams’ skills. Compared to traditional training, gamification has several advantages: it is more fun and engaging, it is logistically simple and reduces costs among others, the recruitment of trainers and travel expenses.
  • Applied to training, gamification allows the standardization of practices and learning at a large scale and within a short period of time. It helps build a corporate culture and creates bonds within an international team or in a company that has introduced teleworking.
  • The introduction of gamification within a global training strategy should be seen as a complement rather than an alternative tool. Depending on the themes addressed and the target audience, a more traditional training format involving discussions, group work or shared experiences may remain necessary.
  • Last but not least, competition encourages participants to excel in order to defeat other teams. It also stimulates collaboration between colleagues. This in turn will increase their commitment during a training course.

About a-Maze

Companies are gradually rethinking their value creation model to ensure sustainable development for all their employees. To show their commitments, one of their challenges is to promote a change of mindset and behaviours within their own organisations.

The serious escape games developed by a-Maze aim to stimulate new postures to assist the economic, ecological and social transition of our society. Each experience invites participants to find solutions that will allow them to escape the maze of the game as well as that represented by the complexity of sustainable development.

dss+ and Voxia communication, both forward-looking companies and recognized influencers have combined their talents and convictions to create a-Maze. The first games address the luxury and agri-food sectors.
