WorkSimple’s Goal Suggestion app empowers the wisdom of crowds to drive business innovation, revolutionizing how companies plan and develop goals for employees and delivering measurable results.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (June 23, 2011)—WorkSimple, the Social Goal Management Company, has launched the world’s first social goal application to empower the wisdom of crowds to identify profitable business objectives—then act on them.
Dubbed “Suggestion Box,” for goals, the new app allows organizations to unleash the innovative minds of employees to improve business results. WorkSimple developed the Goal Suggestion Box on the premise that every organization has internal teams with the potential to generate innovative business ideas that could drive new growth or streamline operations for greater profitability.
Suggestion Box solves a painful problem in many organizations: how to surface the best business objectives to operate smarter, faster and more efficiently. By crossing departmental lines with a Web-based platform that makes suggesting goals simple, Suggestion Box quickly translates good ideas into actionable business goals. The app allows management to solicit meaningful suggestions without getting bogged down in a time-consuming goal planning process, making goal planning simpler and more effective for organizations of all sizes.
Goal Suggestion Box in Action
Here’s how Suggestion Box works: Any employee can suggest goals. WorkSimple allows employees to vote on the goals that most impact their success, providing a new level of employee engagement and driving the most popular ideas to the top, much like the popular social bookmarking tool Digg. Employees can suggest and vote on goals such as product, pricing, marketing, training, or anything else the company may need to focus on.
Suggest Goals: Every community member is empowered to suggest goals, and open a direct public dialogue with other employees and management. Management may introduce goal categories to help spur a discussion and engagement.
Vote on Suggested Goals: The best goals bubble to the top as community members vote and promote the most valuable ideas.
Commit on Goals: With Suggestion Box, teams have the ability to focus on goals or leave them unassigned until they can prioritize. To provide all-important feedback, WorkSimple showcases only accepted goals.
Recognition for Suggested Goals: Suggestion Box opens the door for employees to earn recognition for engaging in the goal planning process.
