Globoforce launches employee recognition application for smartphones

Globoforce has launched an HR application for smartphones to enable employers to ensure staff recognition and appreciation keeps pace with behaviour and performance.

The application, Globoforce Mobile, allows managers and employees to give, receive, approve and redeem recognition awards anywhere and at anytime.

In addition, with Globoforce Mobile, employees who have received a recognition award can immediately access Globoforce Exchange, a global rewards portfolio, shortening the time from achievement to reward.

Eric Mosley, chief executive officer of Globoforce, said: “No longer will employee appreciation be restricted to physical proximity, hampered by distance or timing, or invisible to the organisation.

“Now, anecdotal ‘thank yous’ will be captured in a quantifiable, living embodiment of company culture.

“Best of all, HR leaders will have the real-time performance knowledge to identify their organisation’s influencers and truly understand the employee connections that push the organisation forward.”
