LAS VEGAS, Nevada, SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., and DUBLIN, Ireland – June 27, 2011 – Globoforce®, the world’s leading provider of SaaSemployee recognition solutions, today announced Globoforce® Mobile™. Globoforce Mobile is designed to keep employee recognition and appreciation flowing as consistently as the behaviors and performance that warrant it.
As managers and team members travel and work in today’s fast-paced business world, there is often a time and knowledge gap following a recognition moment. With Globoforce Mobile, managers and peers can give, receive, approve, and redeem recognition awards anywhere, anytime, thereby ensuring strong performance and desired behaviors never get missed. Through recognition that is timely, values-driven, and open to all employees, companies build more connected and fully engaged workforces. Added to the company’s innovations of being first to market with Social Recognition™, Recognition In*telligence™, and Recognition Benchmark Index™, Globoforce Mobile brings the first fully integrated mobile application to the employee recognition industry and the world’s leading global companies.
“Tomorrow’s successful HR leaders will be the ones who embrace social and mobile technologies today,” said Jim Holincheck, managing vice president, Gartner, Inc. "These new technologies enable real-time employee connectivity and interaction across dispersed workforces, which can drive greater employee engagement, productivity, and ROI. As more companies adopt social and mobile into their HR functions, including employee recognition, they will benefit from the real-time view into employee performance and corporate culture."
“Globoforce continues to set the pace for the new frontier of HR and employee recognition. Globoforce Mobile, Recognition In*telligence™, and Social Recognition are just three of the examples. No longer will employee appreciation
be restricted to physical proximity, hampered by distance or timing, or invisible to the organization,” said Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce. “Now, anecdotal ‘thank yous’ will be captured in a quantifiable, living embodiment of company culture. Best of all, HR leaders will have the real-time performance knowledge to identify their company’s influencers and truly understand the employee connections that push the company forward.”
Globoforce’s Strategic Recognition™ platform is the first HR application to deliver measurable value from social media and mobile devices in a fully secure environment.With today’s workforce geographically dispersed and constantly “on-the-go,” many recognition moments get missed. The result is a squandered opportunity to reinforce the desired behaviors and performance that transform a company’s culture. Globoforce Mobile demonstrates to employees their value in real time, shrinking the distance between valued contributions and appreciation. In addition, with Globoforce Mobile, employees who have received a recognition award can immediately access Globoforce Ex*change™, the world’s largest global rewards portfolio, shortening the time from achievement to memorable reward.
