We asked CEOs, L&D, and HR Directors, “Should I get a gamification certificate?”


Why earn a Gamification Certificate?
Is there value in earning a Gamification Certificate? Is it worth the effort? We’ve asked some CEOs, L&D, and HR professionals to share their impressions of the value of a gamification certificate. Maybe what they had to say will give you the answers you need.

Take Your Career to a New Level
Certification tells employers that you are motivated, accomplished and current in your knowledge of talent development skills. It indicates that you are actively working to maintain high standards in the field. When participate in a Gamification Certification Course, you are on your way to demonstrating that you are among the best in your field. You’ll join a select group of individuals who have made the commitment to excellence in employee engagement, process improvement, instructional design, and L&D delivery.

The Experts Concur: More Opportunities, More Pay on the Horizon
The experts agree that opportunities in HR and L&D to apply gamification are only growing, and more opportunities translate into higher pay. Trends project a continued employee engagement crisis, the arrival of Generation Z, the swell of Millennials, the departure of Boomers, and a greater emphasis placed on data projections and analytics. A certification places you in the position to demonstrate savviness in people management, creativity, and analytical skills that leaders are seeking… if not demanding.

Heightened Professional Recognition
A Gamification Certificate attests to experience, knowledge, ability, accomplishment, leadership and contributions to the talent development field. And, advanced designations raise the level of respect among colleagues in the talent development community. Proudly display your certifications on your social media sites and business cards.
