Try something new for 30 days!

So it's the middle of the year... while this leaves most of us thinking where has 2016 gone, it probably leaves some of us to re-evaluate the good intentions that we entered into the New Year with. Whether our New Years' resolution was to start going to gym, losing those extra holiday kilograms or starting a new hobby... some of us may have managed to stick to these, while for others, we might feel like we are stuck in a rut.

According to Matt Cutts, when feeling like this – set yourself a new goal for 30 days. Think of something you have always wanted to add to your life and try it. In other words, there is no need to wait until another New Year rolls around to reach the goals you have always wanted to. Apparently, all it takes is 30 days to form a new habit.

What Matt Cutts observed is that if you are really determined to achieve something, you can do pretty much anything for 30 days. These could be personal or work goals. So if you would like to give these 30 day challenges a try, or you would like to set 30 day challenges for your company, why not add a little extra incentive by using Workpoints?

We have officially launched our new organisational development platform. With this launch we have also re-branded our product into a slick, user-friendly platform called Workpoints. Although the same Encentivize team is behind the creation of Workpoints, our innovative platform enables many new and exciting features. These include:
  • Groups to encourage teamwork and ensure that everyone gets rewarded fairly. Employees can be segmented into different contextual groups, divisions or teams. Activities can be set up in relation to these groups in order to reward accordingly.
  • Leader boards to encourage extra effort through friendly competition. A gamified ordering of the leading individuals indicates their standing in different aspects of work life. It also shows each employee their own position and how to reach the top.
  • Timelines and micro-reporting that keeps everyone aware of the current state of affairs throughout the system and contributes to motivation. Snippets of information are spread around the system, with metrics at a glance and feedback within context.
  • Apps are additional features that have been turned into an app ecosystem. These can be added to Wokpoints on demand. More apps will be added to the app store as they become available.
We will be posting about each of these topics and more on a weekly basis - so stay tuned!
