What you’ll need to know about Labor Management Systems.

LMS is software that helps companies with their workforce, especially with scheduling, time tracking, and payroll. It may also automate various human resources and administrative tasks.

SDT is a theory that suggests three innate needs— autonomy, competence, and relatedness —drive most behaviors.

Applying SDT, fulfilling those needs will then lead to greater intrinsic motivation, satisfaction, and well-being.

Gamification incorporates elements of video design—such as points or badges—into a work environment to increase engagement and motivation. 

Gamification can motivate people to engage in activities that they might otherwise find boring or unappealing, and can help them stay motivated over time. 

Gamification makes employee performance more self-determined—and more fun. 

Employees can see the impact of their work—such as how they  compare to colleagues—and receive instant feedback.  

Manhattan Active Warehouse Management is the only commercially available WMS that integrates gamification across all tasks and activities.
