Gamification can have a huge impact on producing the outcomes you want to see
Leaderboards are a great use case of gamification and a powerful tool to see achievement in action. A leaderboard can show you how its members are performing on a metric, or metrics, of interest to you.
Sounds straightforward, right? Well, yes, but leaderboards are so much more than a bunch of scores on a screen.
They are a way to motivate your team to succeed by gamifying achievement. Everyone can see how everyone else is doing. This inspires members to take action and improve.
There are many examples of use cases for leaderboards. We have seen a lot of success with gamification scoreboards in:
There are no rules to what you can measure on your gamification scoreboard. Whether it be the number or percentage of times an action is completed, or even the monetary value of an action, you have a lot of freedom to measure what matters most to you.
Your gamification scoreboards don’t have to be limited to one performance metric, either. Mix and match so you can see how your members are performing across each. Then everyone can see what areas they’re doing well in and where they’ve got room for improvement!
To get you started, we’ve created a Basic leaderboard template to give you some ideas about what type of performance metrics you can score. It won’t take more than a few minutes to fill out - we promise!
Just delete the columns with metrics you don’t want to include, add ones you do, then input the names of your leaderboard’s members and their scores.
Then download the Leaderboarded add-on from the Google Workspace™ Marketplace and in just a few clicks you can make your very own custom scoreboard, which will update in real time to reflect any changes made to your linked spreadsheet.
Get ready to watch your team succeed!
