7 Ways 1Huddle is Different

Dana Safa

1Huddle is the only competitive gaming platform that onboards new hires faster, upskills better, and fires up employees for work. But those aren’t the only things that make 1Huddle different.

Here are seven things that make 1Huddle unique and unlike the outdated learning management systems that stop millions of workers across every industry from reaching their full potential:

1. we level up managers

The world needs better coaches.

1Huddle turns managers into effective coaches by freeing up managers’ time and helping them understand what their workers are struggling with. Managers use our real-time data, analytics, and insights to pinpoint exactly what every member of their team needs to focus on. This gives managers the tools and ability to become effective coaches who know their team’s strengths and weaknesses.

Instead of relying on one-time evaluations to see how team members are doing, managers use 1Huddle’s real-time reports to help their team continuously level up.


You can launch a game in minutes with 1Huddle.

One of the most common questions we get asked by potential customers is: Will 1Huddle take a long time to set up and launch? The answer: No!

You can create and launch a custom game over any topic or training area on 1Huddle in just minutes. Once you set the game live, your team can be playing and competing on the leaderboard in seconds. And that’s it. That’s all you need to do to get started with 1Huddle.

If you’re too busy to create your own personalized games, or if you just want even more content, we’ve got you covered. Our new on-demand game marketplace, the shop, lets you access hundreds of games across 16 workforce skill areas. We have transformed best-selling nonfiction books, seminars, and workshops from elite partners in every industry into quick-burst games that any team can play in minutes.

This gives managers hundreds of pre-made games to choose from and add to their organization’s game library at any time, and we’re constantly adding more games to the shop so workers always have new, timely games to play.


Why do we see so much voluntary participation on 1Huddle? Simple: Everybody loves games.

1Huddle’s games are all employee-directed and company approved, so it’s not surprising that our games result in massive gameplay across organizations. We’ve had millions of games played to date, and a voluntary participation rate of 99.1%. Plus, over 71% of 1Huddle games are played outside of working hours. That means that employees are eager to keep playing, upskilling, and learning on their own time.

Traditional learning management systems (LMS) are the opposite. With LMS, managers take an average of 106 hours to develop an eLearning course, only to have the majority of their workers click mindlessly through the content without reading or retaining anything. With 1Huddle, workers are not only willing to engage with all types of training—they’re actually excited to play our workforce training and skill games.


With 1Huddle, the game never ends.

Jobs and the workforce are rapidly changing, and companies are struggling to find workers who can keep up. We built 1Huddle to be a continuous development tool so workers can level up and reskill year-round.

The workers who will succeed in the future of work are the workers who treat learning and development as a lifelong process. By giving your workers the tools, ability, and freedom to continually upskill and engage with all types of content, you can prepare every member of your team to level up for the workforce of today and the workforce of the future.

Simply put: 1Huddle lets players train and upskill anytime, anywhere.


Do you want your organization’s training to stick?

The reality is: Most training doesn’t work. Employees forget 70% of what they learn within just three days when using traditional learning platforms like LMS, and 87% is forgotten within a month.

1Huddle’s platform and content is based on leading brain science and cognitive research on how learning works. Our end goal is to make sure your employees always do the right thing, the right way, at the right time, every time.

And we get results. Companies using 1Huddle saw an 83% increase in sales performance after using our games to upskill for work.


With 1Huddle it’s not just about working from home—it’s about winning from anywhere.

Over 96% of workers today own a cell phone, yet only 1% of training is mobile. Our mobile-first training is an accessible way to meet every worker where they’re at.

Today, half of the American workforce is made up of millennials. The average millennial will spend over 10,000 hours on a game platform by the time they reach adulthood, according to the Harvard Business Review, and the average American today spends three hours and 15 minutes on their phone every day.

If we want to meet workers where they’re at, investing in innovative mobile-first training is the way to go.


At 1Huddle, we’re committed to fighting for equal opportunity, access, and respect for all workers.

1Huddle was founded on the belief that our workforce is only as strong as every worker. We believe everyone who works hard deserves access to job training, support, mentorship, and tools that will help them stay competitive in the workforce. That’s why we built a platform that equally powers every worker, from frontline to full-time.

The Shop is just one more way we are working to equal the playing field. We have democratized our on-demand game library so that workers are no longer limited to certain types of games and content. Because once a manager adds a game to their personalized library from our new marketplace, it becomes available to all of their workers. By democratizing game access this way, the shop also helps workplaces in every industry become more equitable.

These are the seven things that make 1Huddle a more powerful tool to level-up your team.
