Hi everyone! I started by writing down the challenge and focusing on the objective at hand. Before arriving at the solution, I wanted to understand the problem space better. I formed some questions on how I could address the problems. How can I incentivize salespeople to actually use the solution, make the reward feel rewarding enough, and actually increase productivity instead of making it feel like a task? I also wanted a way for the supervisor to analyze how their team was doing and reward people accordingly. After some brainstorming, and thinking about what I would want in my office, I came to two conclusions- Employees want to take a break from work and want something personal which can vary between people. A gamer would wanna play games instead of working, a foodie would want free food, and someone who doesn't like their job would want time away from it. I wanted to make my system a reward system for the employees with some healthy competition. I considered adding a leaderboard but I thought it would make the people at the bottom feel unmotivated to work if the gap was too large. I also thought that both the size of the sales, as well as the number of sales should factor in when picking someone to reward. And therefore, SalesBOSS was born! It's a small-scale app designed specifically for keeping track of sales and rewarding members of one office. The home page contains a featured poster- showcasing the salesperson with the biggest sale of the month, with the idea of making the person there feel like a champion and make the others want to be there. It also displays a live feed of sales as they happen, letting both supervisors, as well as other employees, see how their peers are doing and motivate them to step their game up if they want rewards. One can click on a sale card to see detailed information about the sale and track the order status. The statistics page shows the overall stats of the sales team, as well as the best performers in several different categories. We can also click on a salesperson and go to their profile, showing their in-depth stats for the month. Since logically, experienced salespeople will have more sales than new members, there is also a growth compared to last month's stat, giving them a fair chance to win rewards too. The profile also shows the rewards they prefer based on their impression of their performance this month. Finally, there is the rewards page itself, where employees can select rewards that they would like, displaying them on their profile page. The monthly highlights give everyone a fair chance at earning rewards and not just have someone snowballing all of them. Monthly reset also means people who didn't make it won't feel bad about losing and the people who did won't get to brag about it once the month is over, aka inducing a friendly competition. This system also helps the boss see how the employees have done in terms of sales, see key highlights as well as growth as a factor, and then deem whom they think to be worthy of rewards. The rewards being personal may act as an incentive to work hard, play hard. Some of the rewards include napping during work for an hour, watching tv for a bit at work, free dinner at their favorite restaurant, etc. Having the choice to pick what suits you the most, alongside the reward feeling like an actual reward instead of just acknowledgment may act as a strong incentive to increase productivity.
