SAN FRANCISCO, CA-(January 5, 2011)—WorkSimple, the leading results-driven performance management solution, just introduced a new self-service application for teams, departments, and small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs). The new app empowers leadership, management and HR to quickly and easily deploy employee-centric performance management platform.

With its latest release, WorkSimple is addressing a pain point among businesses. Fifty-eight percent of respondents in the 2010 Study on The State of Performance Management gave their organization’s performance management system a “C” or below. A mere 3 percent offered their organization an “A.”

Indeed, deploying a traditional talent management platform today is slow and painful, with continual requests for customization, user training, and professional services hours. What’s more, managers have no easy path to making performance social and visible in real time—critical features in today’s businesses.

WorkSimple’s self-service cloud platform addresses these and other common employee performance management system pain points, empowering businesses to publish strategic objectives and values and department goals, and encourage employees to collaborate on performance goals and projects instantly in the cloud. Individuals, small teams and large enterprises use WorkSimple to create a performance network for all departments in a single day.

“Many small and medium business owners cannot justify the high cost and lengthy implementation of traditional performance management platforms,” said Morgan Norman, CEO and co-founder of WorkSimple. “WorkSimple’s self-service app offers the most advance capabilities necessary to deploy results-based performance and enable new interactions and employee engagement at an affordable price. We are the only platform designed for teams, departments and SMBs in all industries.”

WorkSimple’s self-service solution offers an easy-to-deploy and affordable performance management platform for SMBs, helping them connect employees to strategic business objectives while increasing employee engagement and company-wide productivity. With features like goal management, anytime performance reviews, team coaching, feedback, goal libraries and performance collaboration, WorkSimple helps SMBs compete with larger companies.

Representing the new generation of real-time enterprise applications that are employee-facing, social, and built in the cloud, WorkSimple’s self-service dramatically speeds up the application activation process by eliminating the complexity of consulting, custom fields and workflow. Employees can see company, department and team performance in real time in a social format that encourages employee engagement.

“It takes three months to deploy traditional talent management platforms. Our new customers are deploying our platform in a single day,” said Ben Moore, CTO and co-founder of WorkSimple. “Having an affordable cloud platform that’s easy to manage means SMBs can suddenly compete with larger businesses and enjoy new levels of visibility in a platform employees actually use. Preliminary data shows that employees use our system 10 times more than traditional talent management platforms. This presents an enormous opportunity for companies to improve engagement and performance of their employees.”

No technical skills are required to deploy WorkSimple, and advanced users will find additional opportunities to extend the platform. Within minutes, administrators can configure and publish content such as company goals and values and department goals, enable and invite employees, and design organizational structure. Any administrator can build new departments, teams, groups, job roles, and employees to make sure the performance network is measureable and auditable.
