Even within the smallest teams, employees are often left out or unclear about what their peers are trying to accomplish. WorkSimple Team Edition helps answer an important question: How do we collaborate around where we’re going as an organization?
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
In a move that takes organizations one step closer to the future of work, WorkSimple (http://www.getworksimple.com), the proven Social Performance Management provider, has rolled out a Team Edition. Built on WorkSimple’s popular Social Goals platform, the Team Edition aligns everyday work with the productivity demands of modern employees.
As its name suggests, WorkSimple Team Edition is a simple way to organize business teams—and one that paves the way for greater productivity for any team in any industry. As the social workplace industry’s first Social Performance Management tool that lets global companies build and manage a large team of coworkers, collaborators, contractors, and managers, WorkSimple Team Edition improves communication, collaboration, productivity, and results for every organization
“Even within the smallest teams, employees are often left out or unclear about what their peers are trying to accomplish. Managers have tried to solve this dilemma with more emails, meetings, and conference calls but they just can’t keep up,” said Morgan Norman, co-founder and CEO of WorkSimple. “What’s missing for employees is an understanding of what has been completed, what new priorities have arisen, and what existing priorities have been pushed out. Moreover, WorkSimple Team Edition helps answer an important question: How do we collaborate around where we’re going as an organization?”
The future of work is Social Goals—Social Goals provide a workspace to collaborate on one’s direction with any coworker or direct reports. WorkSimple Team Edition empowers teams from five to 500 to work better together from employees up to top executives. This suite of social performance tools drives feedback, innovation, and agility on the work each worker is doing today, and the goals they are planning for tomorrow. WorkSimple Team Edition is also designed to meet the unique needs of today’s agile and remote teams from development to product to marketing.
“Tomorrow’s challenges are about coordinating and innovating around direction rapidly... It is difficult for most companies as corporate agility is exploding, the virtual workforce is expanding, and contractors are becoming more relevant for every team,” said Ben Moore, co-founder and CTO of WorkSimple. “Standard spreadsheets or project management tools leave many out of the loop, and while they are great for accomplishing a job function they do not help the organization or team understand direction. WorkSimple Team Edition offers an industrial-grade solution that puts the Team and Business strategy plainly in everyone’s hands.”
Consider the benefits of WorkSimple Team Edition for the entire organization:
- Employees can see how their work matters and where the company is going. WorkSimple Team Edition lets employees understand their impact, track accomplishments and get recognition for results.
- People managers can get the most out of their team with Social Goals and inspire leadership in every employee. Project plans and tasks lists don’t empower, but WorkSimple Team Edition can help a worker communicate their vision and set their focus to drive productivity—and results.
- Corporate executives can keep employees connected, aligned, and accountable with Social Goals. WorkSimple Team Edition connects an organization’s workforce, keeps every team in sync, and promotes a results-driven culture.
Social Goals mold to the way today’s employees work and keep their coworkers up to date. WorkSimple Team Edition lets workers organize their goals with a simple and agile prioritization framework; capture urgent and future goals and assign them to “now,” “next,” or “someday” status; add advanced metrics to track more complex goals; unify teams with Team and Company Focus; and work more effectively with one’s team and other teams within the company.
“Like many social systems, there is a little bit of pressure. The pressure in WorkSimple, however, is set by you,” Norman said. “Once you commit to a goal and publish it to the organization, there is a high-probability that you will complete it. It’s that simple. WorkSimple Team Edition goes one step further and promotes encouragement across the team as you strive for and accomplish goals. With WorkSimple, the future of teamwork is here.”
