Digital teams at financial services firms have been slower than digital teams in other industries to adopt game mechanics. But the success of game mechanics in sectors like airlines and education has encouraged digital teams in banks, wealth management firms, and insurance companies to adopt these tactics to encourage digital sales and service use. These early adopters are seeing positive results, including increased online engagement, online banking use, product sales, and social influence.
