Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
SilkRoad Technology, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based social talent management solutions, has been named as a finalist in the Annual 2012 Golden Bridge Awards for Point, its social and collaboration platform. Point connects employees to each other and their organization by uniting the popular features of social networking with talent management to reveal emerging trends and subject matter experts so companies can better understand what and who is driving their business.
With Point, employees have the forum they need to share expertise and be recognized by peers and leaders, allowing them to drive their own careers. Unlike typical social network solutions focused solely on collaboration, Point improves talent management by allowing employees to self-manage their influence, creating higher levels of employee engagement.
“We wanted to create a truly unique solution that would boost employee performance,” said Brian Platz, COO of SilkRoad Technology. “With Point, companies can increase employee motivation, innovation and retention through knowledge-sharing and collaboration. It’s an easy-to-use, effective tool for employees and managers alike. To be honored as a finalist of the Golden Bridge Awards is a testament to SilkRoad’s commitment to helping companies build a self-motivating, successful culture.”
The annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance and strategies, products and services, innovations as well as executives and management teams. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 during the 4th annual awards dinner and presentations.
