At OutsideIn HR, gamification sits at the core of our business. Gamification uses game-based principles to create an effective and engaging learning experience - it includes the application of typical elements of game play like point scoring, competition, rules of play etc. Gamification at OutsideIn HR includes the use of strategy games to teach skills and introduction of game elements into the learning sequence.
