Who Are We
Founded in 2016 as a Software Development Studio, we built computer games and mobile apps solutions for clients. We have in-depth game development and enterprise gamification expertise, yet with a combined global experience of over 100 years in retail, employee engagement and leadership across the team, we saw the opportunity to bring two worlds together. We are based out of Dubai, with presence across Croatia, Australia, and the UK.
Why We Exist
Customer and employee expectations are changing at a challenging pace for retail and employers to keep up with. Businesses become slower to respond to market challenges as they slip into working ‘in-the-business’ rather than ‘on-the-business’. Consequently, threats go overlooked, be it in the form of increased competition, operational inefficiency or missing customer signals. Add to this organisation restructures, compliance and safety obligations, policy changes, and squeezed resources – all of which impact employee morale and motivation.
Fast forward to today, and we, The Gamifier Group, now use our unique blend of skillsets to reboot organisational cultures of mediocre engagement and performance, to solve for the challenges faced and to set new benchmarks of what the best in business looks like.
To help businesses ‘Level-Up’, inspiring them to become the very best version of themselves through creating a culture of engagement, leadership, execution and winning.
We do this by transforming them into high-performing ecosystems that engage, empower and incentivise teams to achieve new heights and defy limitations. We supercharge performance and cultural aspirations through leading engagement strategies, inspiring all people in the organisation to reimagine what is possible.
We are a team of highly energetic, disciplined and results-driven professionals. At our core, we have a passion for culture & performance excellence. Our diverse and experienced team is equipped with the smarts & the muscle, with sleeves always rolled up, to deliver against your vision.
