The user performs an “action” (enrolls, claims and sale, provides feedback, etc.) in the system and a question is posed to the user. The program helps in educating employees, especially in high turnover industries. The purpose is to educate participants on new products being launched and to reinforce company’s mission/vision. If the user answers the question correctly – They receive a reward such as digital movie download, entered in sweepstakes, issued bonus points, eGift card. The premise of of the “Learn to Earn” feature in a program is to be a positive reinforcement of what stakeholders want participants to know about their products and services. Questions are entirely hinged on product-specific details and are presented during the claim process, so the system is less prone to gaming.
