Even the most exciting workplace is packed with dull tasks that have to be done for smooth operations. So how do we get more done?
Human brains don’t embrace boring tasks with passion.
The answer is to make the tasks fun.
Have you heard of gamification? It’s a way of making something more motivating by turning it into a game. For example, you could offer a reward for new staff completing a series of onboarding tasks. How about a personalised mug with their usual drink order printed on the side?
When you need to train staff, don’t just make them sit through training videos. Add in interaction. Perhaps they could complete an interactive quiz along the way?
