THE ZEE WAY: Engaging Induction Experience with Gamification
Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. (ZEE) wanted to develop an induction program that would give an overview of its businesses, history, culture, and policies and at the same time provide an engaging experience to its new joiners. Through the Hero's Journey created with Upside Learning, the employees traveled through seven different milestones, each covering a critical topic, and earned rewards to successfully complete the End Game and become "Extraordinary Together". Through a single, integrated experience, ZEE aimed to position its digital induction program as an opportunity for employees to get into the nuances of its values and culture, and in the process be inducted into the ZEE Way of working.
A winner of 3 Brandon Hall awards in Best advance in custom content, Best unique or innovative learning and development program, and Best advance in employee engagement categories, the program has received glowing feedback from internal and external stakeholders at ZEE.
In this talk we share the journey of creating this program, the outcomes, and learning from this experience.

How gamification boosted financing products sales for Koçfinans
Hear how BrandNewGame Turkey worked with Turkey’s first and leading financing company to increase product revenues by 47%. Even staff who'd never sold these products before started selling them regularly! As new players entered the market the competition in financing sector got fierce. Koçfinans decided to take innovative steps to differentiate in the sector. The key method was to use gamification for both digital and cultural transformation. This sales gamification project was award winning and has been published in Harvard Business Review Turkey. Since then the use of gamification has started to spread around other departments in the company too.
