For several years, recruiting has been one of the business processes that has best leveraged the potential of gamification. According to a recent article in HR Magazine, gamification can be an effective strategy for talent acquisition because of the power to:
- Trigger interest in job openings,
- Enable (and reward) current employees to easily share job openings with their external network and get feedback on their contacts’ progress during the recruiting process,
- Project an innovative image of the employer,
- Give candidates a realistic preview of the job, and
- Predict applicants’ future job performance.
