Gamification and Intellectual Capital

In any knowledge enterprise, intellectual capital can be measured through Products, Patents, IPs, Papers, etc. and employee capital is usually measured through number of employees, their years of experience, educational qualification, achievements, etc.
What about employee achievements?

In today's enterprises there is no effective framework to measure and track employee achievements. Total experience, educational qualification alone may not help in arriving at true employee capital. Employee's accrued achievement in the enterprise over the years is important and should be captured.
It is important that tomorrow's enterprises place mechanisms in place to track and measure its employee achievements not for a year but for an entire employee lifetime. 
Using Gamification techniques to measure and track employee achievements can help build employee profile in the form of accumulated points, badges, and trophies. This can also help strengthen employee loyalty to the organization.
