CASE: CORPORATE UNIVERSE
Four years of sales force motivation via digital gamified communications
Our client launched a complex, innovative product.
Goal: to develop an alternative sales channel and motivate employees to be local brand ambassadors.
Problem
How do we engage employees to take part in a corporate referral program? How do we create a habit out of selling, considering it's not directly a part of the job for the majority of the staff?

The client was ready to experiment.

Every time we came up with a mechanic or an email, we kept in mind two audiences, two key messages, and two motivations.

2. Creative idea and strategy
We had to make this initiative special and apart from standard work processes. It had to be very engaging and inspiring. The idea of a universe, exploration and getting out-of-ordinary was a perfect fit! The bright design, special tone of voice, packaging goals in one mission, fun trainings and virtual currency attracted a lot on attention.

The platform was launched as a space-centric concept, with unique creative setting every annual season. By the end of year 4, we refocused the idea to "return to home Earth" and immersed employees to the concepts of science and technology around the products.

Our main objective is to keep focus on the company's values and strategic goals for every employee.

The virtual currency has value outside the platform. For two years, our client company has been supporting a charity. As part of this support, employees can donate their points according to the inner exchange rate.
