Call Center Gamification with ZIZO

Retain Valuable Call Center Employees

Call centers can be a tough place to work and an even tougher place for call center managers. The industry has become synonymous with high turnover and burn-out. In a post-COVID economy, many companies are facing ‘the Great Resignation’, as employees are leaving in droves for more flexible and meaningful work; making it even more difficult for the call center industry to hire and retain quality call center agents.

In addition to the workforce changes brought on by current events, new generational workforces are entering the scene with much different work ethics and expectations of their employers. Young employees are entering the workforce and quickly leaving jobs that don’t engage and fulfill them; especially when they don’t feel valued by their employer.

Drive employee engagement with call center gamification

That’s where gamification comes in. Utilized for decades by retail companies and app creators, gamification has proven itself to be an excellent vehicle to drive engagement in any activity. The gamification industry has begun to boom in recent years, especially in education and in gamifying learning.

Today’s youngest workforce have been interacting with gaming elements throughout their entire lives in school, social life, and retail. They (along with older generations) are becoming conditioned to expect the instant feedback and rewards that gamification platforms provide.

increase productivity and decrease turnover

In addition to leveraging gamification’s ability to increase productivity by 50% and engagement by 60%, ZIZO also strives to decrease turnover which is currently affecting call centers at over 57% annually.

Engaged employees are 24% less likely to turnover and are 17% more productive than their un-engaged coworkers.  However, after their first year with a company, employee’s engagement drops by an average of 7% and continues to drop year-over-year, which is why continued engagement through gamification is crucial.

ZIZO’s holistic approach to call center gamification doesn’t just stop at engagement with challenges. Our gamification platform allows users to select their own rewards. This finally finds a way to please everyone, while bolstering employee’s perception that their employer cares about their opinions and individual wants and needs, which makes them 4.6 times more likely to work their hardest.

Frequently asked Questions

What Is Gamification

Gamification is applying gaming mechanics into nongame environments to increase participation, motivation and overall happiness.  Gamification software allows employees to receive real-time feedback that motivates and encourages them. Things like competition, points, rewards,  
achievements, rules of play, self-expression and status are leveraged to give employees feedback.  It empowers them to participate and reap the benefits of tangible rewards, bonuses, and rise in rank within a company.

How Does Gamification Work

Gamification plays into the human elements that motivate, allowing users to feel that they are a part of a larger goal that is mutually shared with fellow coworkers, and aligns with overall business goals and objectives. As employees interact with the gamification platform, they receive immediate feedback on their performance, skills and achievements, allowing them to focus on next steps and strategies toward new achievements.  Ultimately, gamification plays on the psychology that drives human engagement.
