SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. and DUBLIN – October 15, 2015 Globoforce®, a leading provider of social recognition solutions, today announced that it was named a Gold Winner for Innovations in Mobile and Wireless for Globoforce Mobile™ at Network Products Guide’s 2015 IT World Awards. Globoforce was also awarded Silver in the Innovations in Video category for Service Timelines™. Network Products Guide’s IT World Awards are the world’s premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the information technology industry.

“Globoforce’s product development team works tirelessly to create the world’s most sophisticated tools for our customers,” said Jonathan Hyland, chief technology officer at Globoforce. “Through our technology, we are delivering on our WorkHuman vision and empowering organizations to unlock their human workplace and build great places to work. With mobile, we are addressing the needs of the changing global workforce by seamlessly connecting every generation across the globe in all types of industries and roles. We are honored to receive this validation of our efforts and congratulate our fellow winners.”

Globoforce Mobile is the employee recognition industry’s first fully-integrated mobile application. With Globoforce Mobile, managers and peers can nominate, receive, approve, and redeem recognition awards anywhere, at any time. For enhanced security, Globoforce worked with its customers, including the world’s leading technology companies, to build the industry’s first complete mobile SSO authentication solution, which was recently granted a patent. Globoforce Mobile is available as a native app on iOS and Android devices.

Service Timelines is a modern approach to years of service programs that transforms the traditional, manager-only anniversary experience into a company-wide celebration. When an employee celebrates a milestone work anniversary, colleagues, company executives, and even the CEO can easily record and post a personalized video message congratulating the employee on their anniversary or share a favorite memory about their time working together. Service Timelines includes the industry’s first video recognition capability for years of service, whereby employees can personalize their congratulations in a safe and secure way via the Globoforce award-winning mobile application or Web.

In addition to the IT World Awards, Globoforce was also recently selected as a finalist in the annual 2015 Golden Bridge Awards for Service Timelines, in the category of Best New Product or Service from Around the World. The Golden Bridge Awards recognize the world’s best companies of all types and sizes and the people behind them.
