Gamify collaboration platforms to encourage healthy competition and better participation: Once a collaboration platform is deployed, gamification should be implemented to increase engagement and participation levels. Success should be celebrated and badges and gifts should be given to top contributors. For example, Virtusa employs a video-game like dashboard where employees can track their progress against their goals and one another. This turns achieving goals into a competitive game that recognizes and awards top performers.

Today’s young work force is virtually all part of the Millennial Generation, also known as Gen Y or digital natives. This is a generation that is comfortable collaborating on social networks, and because of this, they expect their organization to provide collaboration tools and a highly “social” environment. Consequently, those organizations that have adopted these new collaboration tools are expected to see better productivity from their Gen Y employees. This slideshow features five ways identified by Virtusa, a global IT consulting and services firm, in which enterprises can leverage present-day social collaboration technologies to successfully and productively engage with the Millennial Generation.
