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 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. Watch the Service Timelines video demo here. 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.
