San Francisco, CA February 22, 2012 – WorkSimple, the creator of an intuitive Social Performance platform known as Social Goals, has just released Performance and Social Analytics, a proprietary suite of data mining tools that marks a measurable breakthrough in the Talent Management and Human Capital Management industries.
With Social Engagement and Performance Analytics, WorkSimple can help any company gain the visibility executives need to boost employee engagement. The concept of this industry-first product is simple: streamlining how management sees metrics around goal creation, goal feedback and work alignment to a company or team focus. The release comes on the heels of WorkSimple’s Focus Boards, visual dashboard that displays a snapshot of all goal activity aligned to team or company focus.
“Employee engagement is an ever-increasing challenge in today’s competitive business climate, especially for companies that are keeping pace with the demands of the market,” says Morgan Norman, co-founder and CEO of WorkSimple. “There’s not always time to stop and have a team meeting to communicate priority changes. Social Goals helps keep everyone on the same page and fully engaged. Now, with Performance and Social Engagement Analytics, WorkSimple is demonstrating the future of Talent Management.”
WorkSimple Performance and Social Engagement Analytics reports on metrics such as Goals Created, Goal Updates, Feedback, Goals Accomplished, Goal Alignment and Goal Review scores down to a team level. The tool helps HR monitor employee engagement on initiatives that matter most to the organization. With such deep visibility, leadership can move quickly to overcome alignment or execution challenges as they arise, as well as offer employees feedback and recognition.
“Talent Management platforms can never go the route of Social Goals because the employee base rarely uses them,” says Ben Moore, co-founder and CTO of WorkSimple. “Since employees are using Social Goals on a daily basis, our Social Performance platform offers a market-first opportunity to display weekly metrics that help your organization increase employee engagement around your priorities in real-time.”
WorkSimple Performance and Social Engagement Analytics recognizes that companies need better ways to view employee adoption of goals and maximize performance around them—and these tools mark an evolution of traditional Talent Management reporting by meeting organizations where they are—and how they work and share work. WorkSimple Performance and Social Engagement Analytics offers actionable insights into what’s working—and which teams could use a little more motivation—in an intuitive dashboard that helps you develop a collaborative, results-driven corporate culture.
“Companies that want employee engagement around what matters most are turning to Social Goals, feedback and recognition,” Norman says. “WorkSimple will continue to support the needs of the modern workforce with the understanding that the future of performance management platforms is in employee-friendly designs that give HR visibility into what’s going on in all levels of the organization.”
