The fundamental components of game-based learning are straightforward but extremely powerful. The goal is to combine excellent content with a compelling narrative, fun gamification components, and simulations that provide quick feedback (learning by doing). A far cry from the -29 employees scored their typical e-learning courses last year, this approach has allowed serious games, or training video games, to reach an NPS of 45. To refresh digital corporate training programmes, these serious games have emerged as a wise investment.
With the help of this methodology, the HR and L&D teams have achieved and are still achieving their training goals in line with the anticipated effects on the company. While engaging formats are appreciated by employees, learning how to assimilate and retain information while
