WorkSimple Announces Next-Generation Employee Performance Management Software New technology offers a strong challenge to traditional talent management products

San Francisco, Calif. – Dec 4, 2009 – WorkSimple today announced the release of a new performance management, onboarding, and learning solution for small and mid-sized businesses.

Designed with the employee experience in mind, this software-as-a-service offers a dramatically different approach to traditional talent management platforms and promises to set new standards in the industry.

By creating a culture of recognition, support, and engagement throughout each work day, you can have a tremendous impact on employee productivity, retention, and job satisfaction, said Robin Bordoli, CEO and Co-founder of WorkSimple. Most talent management systems available today have simply automated paper processes and consequently people only use them two or three times a year. Our approach provides a distinctive alternative that contributes directly to workday productivity and recognizes employees for all of their accomplishments. But what truly sets us apart is the fact that employees actually enjoy using our system and this allows us to directly impact the culture of our client’s work place.

WorkSimple’s performance solutions integrate employee appraisals, commitment management, informal learning, personal profiles, and professional accomplishments on a social platform. Through WorkSimple, employees and managers gain access to a complete historical record of their contributions, achievements, and interactions with colleagues. Employees are also able to immediately collaborate on daily challenges and can see how their individual contributions align to larger department or corporate goals.

With today’s technology, performance management doesn’t have to be uninspiring or complicated. When done in a collaborative manner, performance reviews can truly benefit all parties involved. Our goal at WorkSimple is to establish a new standard for Web-based performance management that changes how employees think and feel about work, said Ben Moore, CTO and Co-founder of WorkSimple.
