The financial industry is rife with seemingly complicated acronyms and esoteric jargon making internal training and client training extremely important. So how can you make all this training fun and engaging? Games of course! There are several different types of game mechanics that can help train different types of skill. A Word Scramble game is a terrific mechanic for helping new bank loan and risk officers recognize financial jargon. A Trivia or Jeopardy! game is great for training more complicated topics such as financial concepts and definitions. A Sort-It type game helps train employees on new processes and the order in which everything needs to happen. A branching path dialogue or “scenario” type game can help train bank officers and financial advisors soft skills such as empathy and compassion in a safe environment.

Games make the training more fun and engaging. They provide a “practice playground” for your team to fail and learn in a safe place. Games also provide data that helps you understand where there may be gaps in the learning.
Since game play is active rather than passive, learners are naturally more engaged as they want to win. Games encourage learners to return repeatedly to increase their score and move up the leaderboard. How many times do you hear about your learners returning over and over again to your PowerPoint presentation or training manual?
The analytics dashboard in a custom game or in a game in The Training Arcade is engineered to unveil patterns of individual and group engagement with your material, thereby improving your training ROI by revealing knowledge gaps, personality behaviors, and group comparison. Sort topline data including the number of users, scores, rank, sessions, session duration, % of questions correct / incorrect, and total questions answered.
