Workers Can Showcase Goals and Accomplishments on Twitter, LinkedIn With WorkSimples Social Career Management Tool


SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2012

WorkSimple (http://www.getworksimple.com), the proven Social Performance Management provider, just rolled out a new version of WorkSimple's Personal Edition, its employee-centric application for hassle-free career and performance management.

This latest release brings social accounts integration to the Personal Editions goal setting and career management mix. With that, WorkSimple's Personal Edition now empowers you to showcase your accomplishments and impact via LinkedIn and Twitter.

I used to track my goals and accomplishments manually, if at all. WorkSimple just makes this whole process easy, and I can easily generate a report to send to my manager about what Im working on, said Brandon Pershern, a graphic designer at Space150. If you get reviewed based on your results at work, you need WorkSimple!

The WorkSimple Personal Edition first debuted in March. The Personal Edition is designed to function seamlessly with how modern employees work today. Much more than a static resume, it centers on building a visual portfolio of a workers goals and accomplishments. WorkSimple captures the success an employee produces throughout the workday and helps their co-workers and managers see him or her for the rock star they really are.

As the pace of work increases, employeesas well as freelancers and contractorsare having a tough time showing how their work impacts the organization, said Morgan Norman, co-founder and CEO of WorkSimple. Unfortunately, most employees have very little to show at the end of the year when it comes to work accomplishmentsdespite all the great work they did.

WorkSimple's Personal Edition release comes at the heels of an internal survey of more than 1,000 Personal Edition users. The survey reveals that 80 percent of users are interested in using WorkSimple's Personal Edition for career management, while 75 percent are looking to build a professional work portfolio and control their professional reputation. Another 56 percent receive feedback only once a quarter or annually in a performance review. WorkSimple's Personal Edition helps modern workers get more feedback more often.

Its clear that employees want to control their careers internally, but thats often left to the dreaded performance review process that cant truly capture an employees contribution toward the companys goals, Norman said. This leaves the employee without an effective means to build a professional reputation or manage their career.

WorkSimple's Personal Edition puts career management back in an employees hands. The new features help them better manage, track and otherwise take control of their career and performance inside and outside the workplace with social integration. With a few mouse clicks and keystrokes, they can easily communicate progress toward goals, set a core career focus, share and preview files and moreand now they can share it via LinkedIn and Twitter.

Our user growth skyrocketed by 300 percent since we launched WorkSimple's Personal Edition, said Ben Moore, co-founder and CTO of WorkSimple. Clearly, there is a growing need for a new way to manage your career and performance at work. Our users want the simplest way to manage work, get feedback, and keep track of accomplishments.

Todays most successful employees manage their own careers rather than allowing their employers to offer intermittent feedback. They are setting and tracking their own goals rather than taking the career path thats handed to them. Now, employees can do that with a collaborative twist, easily sharing reports with managers, posting goals to Twitter and LinkedIn, and showcasing their contribution to the bottom line in real time.
