What do you think of when you hear “gamification”? In last week's #HDIchat, we wanted to know more about how people are using gamification and what their successes have been. Is it being used for training? Is there a leaderboard in the support center? Is competition a good thing? We heard that setting goals first is important, and that gamification is not the “fix-all” for support or training. And we have pictures to prove we were there!

Read the recap to hear what participants had to say, and then keep the conversation going on HDIConnect!

Join us again this Friday, August 26, for our next #HDIchat (topic: customer experience and the service desk)!
