In 2019 Play Consulting was successful in securing Innovate UK funding for the further development of Totem as a tool to measure, nurture and improve organisational culture.
Innovate UK is part of UK Research and Innovation, funded by the UK government. They fund business and research collaborations to accelerate innovation, drive economic growth, and realise the potential of new ideas.
Play applied for funding to support our goal in developing a world-first approach to employee engagement through Totem, a unique workplace Culture Tech tool. We are looking to address global productivity gaps through the application of sophisticated analytics and gamification techniques.
Here at Play, we specialise in aligning unique gamification approaches with cutting-edge platform development. We’re on a mission to realise human potential at work by creating an inclusive tool that makes culture everyone’s business.
The Play Totem Team are at the forefront of innovative approaches to employee engagement, fundamentally shifting organisational structures and empowering staff in a way that is not only innovative but embedded and long-lasting.Tom Kennard, Director at Granted Consultancy, who supported our application.
The development of Totem will allow organisations to truly measure culture in realtime, in a way that is intelligent and gamified. This insight will allow leaders to take action, continuously improving culture in a personalised way.
We’re working hard on the development and release of this innovative new work, so there is certainly more to come.
Keep your eyes peeled! An even stronger Totem is on the way.
