Employees Can Now Showcase Their Accomplishments in Real-Time
San Francisco, CA — October 4, 2011 – WorkSimple (http://www.getworksimple.com), the company that offers social goals and a fresh approach to performance reviews, today announced LinkedIn integration. WorkSimple users can now add Positive Feedback & Recognition from co-workers, managers, or leadership on their social goals to their LinkedIn profile. This new feature makes it easy for users to showcase their accomplishments and share results with their connections on LinkedIn.
“More than 120 million professionals worldwide come to LinkedIn to showcase their professional work experience, and recognition is a key to your professional working profile,” said Morgan Norman, CEO of WorkSimple. “The challenge has been having recommendations happen in real-time, based on your current work. With WorkSimple’s LinkedIn integration, now they are.”
WorkSimple’s LinkedIn integration shares your professional accomplishments and recognition from co-workers, managers, and leadership to your LinkedIn profile without delay. After you’ve created your goal, you can receive feedback and recognition from your co-workers, and post it to your LinkedIn profile.
“WorkSimple’s recommendations are another huge leap for the human resource technology and performance management space,” said Ben Moore, CTO of WorkSimple. “This is the way recognition and performance is used in the real world. WorkSimple is the only platform where there is something in it for the employee.”
Additionally, launched three weeks ago, WorkStory offers an opportunity for professional branding inside your company, allowing WorkSimple users to see your goals and accomplishments as they happen in real-time — similar to the new Facebook timeline but for your professional portfolio.
