Gaming Culture and its Implications for OD Interventions

Presented by Jonathan Harrison

We are delighted to host our former board member, Jonathan Harrison, to give us a new perspective on something close to the heart of many people. Video games.


How video games can drive employee engagement, behavior change, and staff development

This month we look at how to put more fun into work! Jonathon Harrison, TEDx speaker and author of: "Mastering The Game: What Video Games Can Teach Us About Success In Life" will lead an interesting discussion on how games can be leveraged to drive motivation and really engage employees and customers in your organization and for your clients. 

With the video game industry valued at $15 Billion plus, it's known that gamification and game mechanics resonate with all levels of employees. Here is your chance to understand this growing industry and how it can be applied to organizational development needs.

With their tremendous potential for influencing behavior change, games and a gaming mindset should not be overlooked by Organizational Development Practitioners and business leaders alike.

Are you ready to take your work to the next level?


Topics include

  • The Gaming Industry: the business, and the relevance to OD
  • How gamification has impacted HR and OD, by improving engagement, learning, and behavior change
  • The opportunity to engage the younger generation of video game players in a workplace environment
  • Address the negative stereotypes/concerns about video games
  • How the future of video games will further change the workplace
