How staff at GAME are using learning technologies to win in a competitive market
Winner of ‘Best Learning management system implementation’ at the eLearning Awards, this case study focuses on how GAME used interactive content, including social and gamification approaches in their Learning Management System to successfully engage learners.
Holding onto a market share of 30% in a fast moving and competitive market is tough and when the market is the video gaming industry it is tougher still.
It was touch and go for GAME in 2012, when the company was forced into administration and they had to close almost half of their 600 UK stores. Three years into recovery, the company has the biggest high street and digital gaming presence in the UK.
GAME is a fast-paced, customer-driven, dynamic place to work and shop. They are passionate about what they do, and it shows in the way they work and in the way, that they attract talent to the organisation. It is also essential that they offer a learning experience that builds on their brand. To do this they partnered with Growth Engineering to create Learning Zone – an online environment that harnesses social connection and collaboration to build essential skills.
GAME recognised that it is vital to deliver an excellent customer service experience not found online and that their staff need to be equipped with the skills and expertise to do just that.

Today is international Women’s Day; the annual occurrence that seeks to revel in how far women have come, and address how far they have left to go in the battle for gender equality.
