Engagement, or rather lack thereof has become a major issue because of its negative impact on productivity. Recently, gamification has successfully been implemented into corporate technological interfaces to increase engagement of employees. This paper proposes a theory-driven experiment that examines the impact a gamified interface has on engagement and performance of workers in a warehouse-management task. Specifically, the experiment proposed in this paper compares how the integration of two different types of goal-setting (self-set goals or assigned goals) into a warehouse-employee interface will affect engagement and performance.
