WorkSimple Releases First Talent Management System to Combine Informal Learning and Innovation on One Simple Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif – December 17, 2009 — WorkSimple today announced new functionality to its performance management and learning solution that enables businesses to drive innovation from within their existing workforce. With this latest release, WorkSimple is now the industry’s first talent management provider to blend innovation, informal learning, and performance management on one easy-to-use platform.

“WorkSimple Learning gives small-to-medium-size businesses the ability to nurture the most innovative ideas from every employee, while simultaneously building a company culture that recognizes and acknowledges its workforce,” said Robin Bordoli, Co-founder and CEO of WorkSimple. Our approach to performance management and learning helps companies achieve new levels of workforce engagement and productivity.”

WorkSimple Learning gives organizations the opportunity to quickly deploy an informal learning strategy within any department, location, or region. This helps increase corporate-wide communication and engagement, while providing decision makers with new ways to capture and build on the best ideas of their employees. The combination of WorkSimple’s informal learning platform and its performance management solution, offers businesses a new way to support the needs of a fast-paced work environment.

This new way of thinking about workforce education and engagement helps organizations make a clear statement that the voices of their employees matters, and we believe this is one of the primary reasons why WorkSimple fosters a true employee recognition culture.”
