HRO Today and PeopleScout Release APAC Study: Candidate Attraction and Assessment Using Gamification

June 14, 2017

Philadelphia, PA – May 4, 2017 – SharedXpertise, publisher of HRO Today, and PeopleScout, a leading provider of recruitment process outsourcing solutions, have announced the release of the study:  Candidate Attraction and Assessment Using Gamification in APAC.

This exclusive report shows that the use of gamification in HR is still in its infancy in the APAC region and varies among individual countries.

However, it has appeal in both talent acquisition and employee training programs, and is primarily used as a tool for building the company’s talent pool.

“Interestingly, we found that Millennials are the group most exposed to gamification, particularly males,” said Larry Basinait, Vice President of Market Research, SharedXpertise.  “The concept is an outgrowth of video games, so companies naturally want to interact with candidates in a way that’s familiar to them.”

“A common application of gamification is building the size of the talent pool,” said Nicole Cook, Managing Director, PeopleScout.  “This is related to keeping candidates engaged, as a way to build the talent pool through continuous contact with the prospect.  When an opportunity arises, the right candidates can be notified.”

This study is the second in a series of HRO Today Flash Reports.  These reports discuss the results of research and editorial papers that address today’s topics of interest in the HR community, and can be leveraged to support business decisions and to spark discussions among human resource practitioners and thought leaders globally.
