Globoforce® (www.globoforce.com), the world’s leading provider of social recognition solutions, today announced the release of a new book authored by CEO Eric Mosley, The Crowdsourced Performance Review.
In this provocative e-book, Mosley examines the challenges with the annual performance review - why it’s frozen in time and dreaded by employees, managers, and HR. Far from ditching the performance review entirely, the book re-imagines the performance review system for today’s workplace by adding practices and strategies that keep pace with the extraordinary changes in business thinking and technology. The Crowdsourced Performance Review shows how crowdsourced feedback and recognition can transform the review process and provide a new approach to performance management.
“The Crowdsourced Performance Review shows why the traditional performance review is holding back many organizations from helping employees give their best,” said Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce. “There is a new crowdsourcing paradigm in the consumer world that is now transforming HR. By leveraging this same approach with recognition and performance management, companies can make performance reviews more social, more global and, ultimately, far more effective and measurable.”
Early praise for The Crowdsourced Performance Review:
“Social recognition is an important new way to extend employee feedback well beyond the traditional “manager-driven” appraisal process. Eric’s book will help readers understand the principles of social recognition and the emerging role it plays in continuous performance management.”
~ Josh Bersin, President and CEO of Bersin & Associates
“Crowdsourcing feedback really is an idea whose time has come. Eric clearly has a very good take on what it is to recognize people, what it is to help them to do a better job, and to use recognition to really drive higher performance in the workforce. It is a great book if you want to know how to use performance management and recognition to get more out of your workers. I would recommend it to anyone.”
~ John Hollon, Vice President for Editorial, TLNT.com and ERE Media
“Eric’s new book is great. He does a great job of breaking down the challenges that we're faced with in the traditional performance review. Eric also has some really actionable information there for any organization of any size to do something more. He builds a great framework for social recognition – what it means, why it matters, and how to apply these basic principles to your own performance management.”
~ Kyle Lagunas, HR Analyst, Software Advice
“This book is a great way of thinking about a solution to a problem in talent management today. Eric is providing a new, innovative way to think about performance reviews, to think about collaboration between employees and employers. He’s giving a new way to think about the workforce.”
~ Madeline Laurano, Research Director of Human Capital Management, Aberdeen
