After discussions with the Vynamic team about how to develop an app that incentivized organic bonds between longtime and new employees, I created a mobile app concept based on the idea of orbits and gravity. As you get to know your coworkers better, they move into a closer orbit to you. Initial ideas included awarding points for attending company events, or just snapping a selfie with your coworkers while out for a beer.
In further revisions and feedback from the Vynamic team, the app was simplified to award points through different quiz games.
Due to unsurety in the evolving feature set the app wasn't pursued past the wireframe phase. I still believe in the general concept, and that with further exploration and more consideration to how points are awarded, the app could achieve its original goal and encourage employees in a large company to create stronger bonds.
