International Media Award for Prevention

 

The Engagementgame developed by TNO in collaboration with partners is the winner of the 'International Media Award for Prevention' in the category Multi Media. This serious game, that trains managers to decrease work related stress and increase work engagement of their workers, is, according to the international jury a powerful learning tool providing a number of possibilities and advantages over traditional teaching and training methods.

The Engagementgame is the winner of the 'International Media Award for Prevention' in the category multimedia. Of the 290 submissions from all over the world, the international jury was unanimous in the choice for the Engagementgame, that trains managers to reduce work related stress and work pressure of their workers and increases work engagement. The jury thought the Engagementgame a powerful learning tool providing a number of possibilities and advantages over traditional teaching and training methods. The prize is awarded to TNO on Monday the 25 of August, during the International Media Festival for Prevention on the XX World Congress on Safety and Health in Frankfurt.

The Engagementgame is a serious game, developed by TNO in cooperation with Arboned, ING and Ranj.
GAMING WITH WORK STRESS AND ENGAGEMENT With the Engagmentgame, an interactive game, managers have a tool that helps them understand the role they play in reducing work related stress and increasing work engagement of their workers. Because the interactive game provides direct feedback on the effects of virtual actions on short term and on long term, it is a powerful tool to work with a theme that has a negative connotation (work related stress) or is considered to be very complex. Engaged workers have many advantages for commercial and non-profit organizations. Engaged workers are more committed, loyal, energetic and passionate, and enjoy more personal growth in their work. A manager of engaged workers is ‘working with gold’.

INVOLVEMENT MANAGEMENT IS CRUCIAL
One of the causes of prevention of work related stress and stimulation of work engagement not having the attention in
companies that it should have, is that managers know the problems, but have limited knowledge on possible measures and interventions. TNO developed management interventions to prevent work related stress before, but did not succeed in showing managers how important their role in stress prevention is on the long term .Management involvement in stress prevention is one of the most important conditions for success. With the game we have a different approach. By also focussing on work engagement and by creating a fun way of working on an emotionally charged topic.

DEVELOPMENT

The Engagementgame, that is part of a training, is an initiative of TNO and developed by TNO in cooperation with Arboned (former 365), Ranj and ING. TNO developed the scientific model based on a literature study and expertise from TNO and Arboned on the area of work related stress and work engagement. Also the hands on experience of Arboned in this field is used to connect knowledge of work related stress with knowledge of work engagement. This model is combined with TNO’s knowledge and experience in the field of Serious Gaming to increase training and knowledge transfer.
