Press release: 2nd of August 2016
Alliance Enterprises Partners with Gamification Nation
Maker of employee engagement software extends reach
in Europe and the Middle East with new affiliate agreement
Alliance Enterprises continued to expand the company’s international footprint today by bringing on board Gamification Nation, a London-based human resources and management consulting firm. The new affiliate will market Alliance’s employee engagement software, MyObjectives, throughout Europe and the Middle East.
Gamification Nation is a leading provider of gamification design for government organizations and companies seeking to create a more energetic workplace and to spark greater employee engagement. The firm’s leader, An Coppens, is a frequent speaker at gamification conference around the world and she’s published a book on the subject, Gamification in Business.
“This is a great partnership because our company and theirs strongly believe that it’s time to blow up the broken system of performance management that centers on annual employee reviews,” said Alliance Enterprises CEO, Chris Pieper. “It’s time for more fun, and better communication and collaboration among teams at work. Humans have always loved playing team games, and we offer a science-backed solution that taps into this elemental passion, resulting in higher employee engagement and greater productivity.”
In 2015 Alliance released MyObjectives, a software program that adds game elements to traditional performance evaluation models, like the Balanced Scorecard. MyObjectives features real-time team scorecards, dynamic progress charts, and ongoing rewards that provide instant feedback as employees work toward achieving their objectives.
“Studies show that employee engagement is very low, particularly in Europe,” said Coppens, whose titled appropriately as Chief Game Changer at Gamification Nation. “Thanks to games and social media we’ve grown used to having immediate feedback, but that’s not happening with annual appraisal process once or twice a year. We love MyObjectives because employees receive input in real time in a fun way.”
Alliance released in June the latest version of MyObjectives to the European market – and to more international regions. In the new release, MyObjective customers benefited from better real-time scorecard functionality, and a new messaging platform, as well as enhanced real-time dashboards for business leaders.
