Gamification: Don’t let it become a pseudonym for micromanagement or a substitute for trust

Gamification: Don’t let it become a pseudonym for micromanagement or a substitute for trust

A gamified workplace sets not just goals for workers but precisely how those goals can be achieved. Managers don’t need to follow workers with stopwatches. They can use smartphones or apps. It’s micromanagement with unprecedented granularity. ‘This is Taylorism 2.0,’ according to the media expert Steven Conway of Swinburne University of Technology in Australia.


Gamification is everywhere. It influences where we shop, what we eat, who we friend, and increasingly, how we work. At least once a month some company wants to demonstrate their new employee monitoring technology to me. "It will be great, managers can tell, in real time, whether or not their people are actually working," they tell me with glee. But I'm not very gleeful about it and this article will help you understand why you shouldn't be either.

Mobile meeting rooms coming to a street near you

Mobile meeting rooms coming to a street near you

The furniture store’s research lab has dreamed up seven ways we might use autonomous vehicles if we don’t actually have to focus on driving.


Is this the future of the mobile office? Ikea Labs thinks it might be. And why not? They see it as a way to work on the way to work. I think about it as a way to bring nature into the office. Imaging parking this thing at a Grand Canyon vista?

WE goes to Washington for IFMA Advocacy Days

WE goes to Washington for IFMA Advocacy Days

Every year delegates from IFMA travel to D.C. to ask members of Congress how we can help and what our members tell us they need and want.


This year, fellow Workplace Evolutionary Kate Lister joined the delegation led by IFMA's Jeff Johnson to champion for telework legislation, FM apprenticeships, continuing work toward better managing the federal real estate portfolio. In total, we spoke to more than a dozen U.S. senators and congressmen.

If you have something you'd like to say about FM or corporate real estate to your federal, state, or local government representatives, consider pulling IFMA's advocacy group into the conversation. With 24k+, members our voice carries some weight.
