When you were in school, you probably remember watching countless documentaries, slide shows and lectures that could have put you to sleep instantly. Traditional training and teaching methods have the potential of being boring and not very engaging for participants. When you train your employees, you want to make sure they are engaged in the course and retain all of the information presented to them. Standing up in the front of a conference room lecturing your staff isn’t necessarily going to get the job done. This is why game based can be a great asset.
Corporate leads of today understand the need for training and grooming of their employees in order to keep them abreast with the latest technologies and norms of the fast-paced industries that they are a part of. However, there is another training need that also needs to be given equal importance. This is the need for honing employees’ soft skills such as that of being a better team player, responsible leader, proactive employee and the like.
In the world of gaming, there always seems to be this difficult relationship with the casino and its regulator. This is true for both private casinos and those that are Native American owned. Casinos need to hire reliable individuals (ideally those who have passed employee background checks) to keep their business generating revenue, and the gaming commission’s job is to make sure those people are legally licensed to work in their respective facilities. Sometimes, the casinos refer in jest to the gaming commission as “cops,” and the gaming commission can refer to the casino as “cowboys.” Aside from that friendly banter though, this is truly a symbiotic relationship. Both parties need each other, and the fact remains that if the gaming commissions overregulated the casinos, the gaming commissions wouldn’t be around themselves.
