Gamification is encouraging you to perform something better by making it into a game. Points for losing weight, using a service more, and so forth. Amazon has been doing this with various methods and is now using it in the warehouse to encourage even greater productivity. I wonder if, at a point, this will wind up with more Amazon workers reporting burnout, as they try to keep up with the Jones’s.

Amazon is expanding its FC Games program, which gamifies warehouse work by letting employees compete against one another and earn digital rewards by playing one of six mini-games on the job.
