Gamified Onboarding with Measurable Results with Jeanne Bakker

The term Gamification is often used, and over-used, in our industry.  But any time I hear about measurable results I am immediately interested.  

In this episode we're talking with Jeanne Bakker, founder of Brain Bakery.  You may have seen her YouTube videos or attended one of her many keynotes around the world.  She also hosts the podcast No More Boring Learning, but it's not in English so I haven't heard it yet.

We discussed how one of her client companies used gamification, storytelling, rewards, and manager commitment to redesign an onboarding program with real measurable results at Kirkpatrick Level 4. And we also discussed ideas about gamifying your own onboarding or other training programs as well as inspiring you to measure your performance results.
