Organisations differ in the acceptance of playfulness at the workplace. While some value playful approaches as a means of increasing employees´ motivation, others are convinced that playing games is not appropriate in a working context. Depending on whether playful approaches are accepted and supported by management and employees or not, we argue that work gamification has different effects. Based on organisational climate research, we present the concept of Gamification Climate in organisations. To measure this, we have developed a corresponding survey instrument; the Gamification Climate Scale (GCS). Initial validation results (N=139) indicate good reliability and provided indications for the further development of the scale. The GCS may be considered as a promising tool for future research on work gamification as well as for using it in organisations that aim to implement gamification approaches.
