San Francisco — June 23
WorkSimple, a social goal management company, has launched the first social goal application to help identify profitable business objectives and act on them.
Dubbed “Suggestion Box” for goals, the new app allows organizations to unleash the innovative minds of employees to improve business results. WorkSimple developed the Goal Suggestion Box on the premise that every organization has internal teams with the potential to generate innovative business ideas that could drive new growth or streamline operations for greater profitability.
By crossing departmental lines with a Web-based platform that makes suggesting goals simple, Suggestion Box quickly translates good ideas into actionable business goals. The app allows management to solicit meaningful suggestions without getting bogged down in a time-consuming goal planning process, making goal planning simpler and more effective for organizations of all sizes.
Through the app, any employee can suggest goals. WorkSimple allows employees to vote on the goals that most impact their success, driving the most popular ideas to the top, much like the popular social bookmarking tool Digg. Employees can suggest and vote on goals such as product, pricing, marketing, training or anything else the company may need to focus on.
Suggest goals: Every community member is empowered to suggest goals, and open a direct public dialogue with other employees and management. Management may introduce goal categories to help spur a discussion and engagement.
Vote on suggested goals: The best goals bubble to the top as community members vote and promote the most valuable ideas.
Commit on goals: With Suggestion Box, teams have the ability to focus on goals or leave them unassigned until they can prioritize. To provide all-important feedback, WorkSimple showcases only accepted goals.
Recognition for suggested goals: Suggestion Box opens the door for employees to earn recognition for engaging in the goal planning process.
