With zombies everywhere and angry birds flying overhead, the world has been taken over by games. With 72 percent of American households playing games, according to a study by the Entertainment Software Association, it is no surprise that gaming has become a $25 billion industry. So what does gaming have to do with recruiting? Some employers are using gaming techniques and mechanics to attract and engage job candidates, while others have used gaming to strengthen connections with existing employees.

During this webinar, Louis Vong, vice president of Digital Strategy for TMP Worldwide Advertising & Communications, LLC, will explain how when done correctly, gamification can build some exciting engagements with job seekers. Participants will learn what gamification is and how it is being applied by employers and marketers; what to avoid in order to build a good strategy; how to identify the target gaming audience; and how to understand the basics in order to begin discussing gamification with colleagues.

HR and training and development professionals, business managers and executives interested in learning how gaming can be used in the recruiting process to attract and engage candidates are encouraged to attend this educational session that will teach them how to implement a successful gamification strategy.
