A Tippspiel-inspired game is boosting engagement at frontline businesses across Europe!

Are you ready for some football frenzy? The Euros are here, and with them comes a fantastic new way to engage and connect frontline employees – introducing EuroPick on Beekeeper! This exciting Tippspiel game is sweeping Europe, bringing joy and a competitive spirit to workplaces everywhere.

What is Tippspiel?

For those new to the term, Tippspiel is a beloved game in Germany and Switzerland where participants predict the outcomes of football matches. It’s a fun, interactive way to showcase your football knowledge and luck. With the Euros in full swing, we thought it was the perfect time to introduce this game to our broader Beekeeper community, especially those in English-speaking regions who might need to become more familiar with it. And so, EuroPick was born!

The Euros – A football extravaganza

The UEFA European Championship, commonly referred to as the Euros, is one of the most prestigious football tournaments in the world. Held every four years, it brings together the best national teams across Europe to compete for the ultimate prize. From stunning goals to nail-biting finishes, the Euros never fail to deliver thrilling football action.

Why EuroPick on Beekeeper?

We know how important it is to keep employees engaged and connected, especially in today’s fast-paced work environment. EuroPick on Beekeeper is more than just a game; it’s a powerful tool to boost morale and foster community within your organization. Here’s why this initiative has been a game-changer:

Increased engagement

EuroPick has already seen impressive participation, with over 10,000 users making predictions for the first match! This level of engagement demonstrates the power of shared activities in bringing your team together, regardless of their physical location. The anticipation of each match and the excitement of predicting outcomes keep employees invested and connected.

Friendly competition

Nothing sparks excitement like a bit of friendly rivalry. Predicting match outcomes and competing for the top spot on the leaderboard adds a fun, competitive edge to the workday. This friendly competition can boost morale and motivation, encouraging employees to engage more with each other and the platform.

Team bonding

Sharing the highs and lows of football matches helps build stronger relationships among colleagues. It’s a great conversation starter and a way to connect with those you might not interact with regularly. Celebrating wins and commiserating over unexpected results brings a sense of camaraderie and shared experience.

Activation of frontline employees

One of the standout benefits we’ve observed is activating new frontline employees on the Beekeeper platform. Driven by their desire to participate in ‘EuroPick,’ these employees are not only joining the game but also becoming more involved in other aspects of the platform. This increased activity helps integrate them into the company culture and keeps them informed and engaged.

The thrilling first match

Let’s talk about the first match that kicked off this EuroPick adventure. Germany vs. Scotland was a game that had everyone on the edge of their seats. With a staggering 93.6% of participants correctly predicting Germany’s victory, it was clear that our users have their finger on the pulse of football.

But the final score – Germany 5-1 Scotland – surprised many! Only 0.13% of our participants predicted the exact score, and just 1.22% got the goal difference right. These surprising outcomes add extra excitement and unpredictability to the game, keeping participants eager to see if their next predictions will be more accurate.

Looking Ahead: More Sporting Events on Beekeeper

Given the overwhelming success of EuroPick, we are excited about the potential for similar engagement activities in the future. The positive feedback and high levels of participation have shown us that our community loves this kind of interactive, competitive fun.

We are considering rolling out similar games for other major sporting events and tournaments worldwide. Whether it’s the World Cup, the Olympics, or other international sports competitions, these events provide a perfect opportunity to unite employees and create a vibrant, connected workplace.

Enhancing Employee Engagement

Introducing EuroPick during the Euros has been a resounding success, proving that such initiatives can significantly enhance employee engagement and build a stronger sense of community within organizations. As we look forward to more such events, we are excited about the possibilities for greater participation and connection among our users.

Thank you to everyone who has participated and made EuroPick such a hit. Here’s to more employee engagement, more predictions, and more connections in the future!
