Globoforce Announces New Book: The Crowdsourced Performance Review
SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. & DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
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 us 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
"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

problem in talent management today. Eric is providing a new, innovative
way to think about performance reviews, to think about collaboration

recognition in their workplace; specifically, with performance reviews."
