The current business environment is one of rapid change. From a changing technological landscape to evolving employee preferences that influence the nature of work, companies are in the middle of a tumultuous period. In such times, most look forward to stabilising their ships. One way of doing this is by ramping up investments in proven and effective learning platforms. In a recent PwC’s Annual Global CEO Survey over 93 percent of CEOs who had introduced digital upskilling programs said these programs increased productivity.

While businesses scale to figure newer avenues of growth, their success depends on how effectively their employees learn and build new skills. For learning professionals, this means building platforms that train a diverse cohort of individuals, each with their unique ways of learning, while also keeping them engaged. As a result, companies require learning platforms that provide the right mix of engaging and fun learning methodologies and robust content.

Gamelearn does exactly that.

An interactive environment where employees can learn practical skills and concepts to solve real-world problems helps game-based learning make learning an easy process. It also bypasses another problem with most traditional training modules; the often cumbersome and disengaging learning programs that employees have to sit through.

According to Gamelearn, over 99 percent of professionals improved their skillsets after completing their courses.
