Most of us have goals whether they be personal or professional. Goals are what motivates us to perform better and strive towards something. It’s no wonder then that employers keep asking what our long term goals are during performance evaluations. Anyone with goals has desire to succeed regardless of what the goals are and that’s a valuable commodity.
WorkSimple is all about tracking those goals and achievements. Through goal recording and progress tracking, WorkSimple acts as a ledger, showcasing everything that’s been accomplished. Where traditional evaluations and performance tracking tucks goals away, WorkSimple brings them into the light with the Social Goals aspect.
Social Goals is a way for users to work together on goals and develop a level of accountability towards those goals. Users can gain valuable feedback and communicate about progress or any other aspect of their goals. With social media sharing built in, users can announce their accomplishments and further build their network around their success.
Aside from the social features, there are a number of potential uses for WorkSimple. Features like Recognition provide an opportunity for others on your team to show appreciation and convey admiration for your achievements.
Employers can benefit from the use of WorkSimple with Team Performance features such as Private Feedback, Team Focuses and Discussions. With items like Social Goal and Focus Reports, teams can monitor success rates.
There are a great many useful features packed into WorkSimple and depending on the plan, users can really gather a mass amount of information all organized in a way that shows just which goals are being met and by whom.
WorkSimple has three plans, Personal (free), Team ($5/user/month) and Business ($9/user/month). The pay plans each offer a 30-day free trial. Each plan has additional features, with the Business plan having more advanced reports and support available.
Individual users using the Personal plan can track their own goals and use it as a means to motivate themselves. Through various badges, users can display pride in their achievements as well as endorse others for theirs.
WorkSimple could be a nice new way for employers to motivate their employees and keep the evaluation process more casual without losing its importance. The benefits of using this type of solution can lead to more attentive associates and provide an underlying sense of peer pressure to perform well and achieve goals. The downside for employers is that they need to be willing to step up to the plate for associates who go above and beyond, both appreciatively and financially. A step that some might not be ready to take.
For personal users, everything is open-ended. The power of social interaction is what will drive individuals to succeed so they’ll need to embrace that aspect if they want to get the most from WorkSimple. Regardless of use, WorkSimple has developed a platform that is impressive and with enough adoption can adjust the way we approach our own personal and professional objectives.
