Whether you’re huddled under your covers clutching your iPad for warmth or sitting in your stuffy office, check out the latest news on gamification!

A bunch of pharmaceutical news outlets published pieces on a new study which shows gamification helps patients take their medication as prescribed. Hate to overstate it, but that means gamification literally saves lives. Not too shabby eh?

Since it’s the new year and everyone is still in the thick of their new year’s resolutions, check out this article on how gamification helps people stick to their fitness regime. It makes sense, gamification motivates us in immediate and reliable ways. That’s the key to sticking to a regime! 

B2C Magazine is a little behind the curve. They’re declaring gamification “the latest employee engagement technique”. Hate to pat ourselves on the back but we’ve been training employees with gamification for years. Glad the rest of the industry is getting in on the secret though!
