FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WorkSimple Partners with CultureRx to Measure Employee Performance in a Results-Only Work Environment
Game-changing partnership establishes the first talent management solution to support a results-only work environment
SAN FRANCISCO, Mar 23, 2010 — WorkSimple, the pioneer of daily employee performance management, learning, and innovation solutions for small and midsize businesses, today announced that CultureRx, the world’s exclusive results-only working environment (ROWE) consulting firm, has selected WorkSimple’s white label platform to support its performance-based management strategies.
“We chose to partner with WorkSimple because they completely understand the future of employee performance management, in fact, they are the future of performance management,” said Cali Ressler, Co-founder of CultureRx and Co-creator of the ROWE movement. “There’s nothing else like it in the marketplace. It’s the only solution that truly supports and validates a results-only work environment and we are proud to offer our own CultureRx-branded version of WorkSimple to our new and existing clients.”
A results-only work environment is a rapidly growing management strategy that evaluates employees based on their performance, not their physical presence. In a ROWE, managers and employees focus solely on the results they produce, which increases an organization’s performance and engagement levels. CultureRx has proven expertise to establish an authentic ROWE in organizations of all sizes and industries, and this partnership with WorkSimple is expected to significantly revolutionize how employees work and how performance will be managed. Companies that work with CultureRx to implement a ROWE have seen workforce performance increase an average of thirty-five percent while creating the right climate for people to manage all the demands of their personal lives.
“We are extremely excited to be the first and only ROWE-approved talent management platform in the industry,” said Morgan Norman, CEO and Co-founder of WorkSimple. “Pairing CultureRx’s visionary ideas of the workday with WorkSimple’s fresh approach to employee performance management, learning, and innovation will significantly change how businesses look at talent management and the performance review process. We are extremely proud that our employee-centric approach has been able to support the ROWE movement and we are already seeing tremendous success with this relationship.”
“Our ROWE-branded version of WorkSimple now gives managers a powerful tool to obtain the results they need within a given work period,” said Jody Thompson, Co-founder of CultureRx and Co-creator of the ROWE movement. “And unlike traditional performance management tools that are solely management-oriented, WorkSimple is the only platform that actually offers something for the employee. It’s also the only solution that employees actually want to use.”
The ROWE instance of WorkSimple is only available through CultureRx, which provides full implementation and administrative consulting services. For inquiries about services, please visit www.gorowe.com or send an email to info(at)gorowe(dot)com.

We are committed to employees being vested in the big picture through a new lifestyle. A new way of thinking.
