April 6, 2016 | Globoforce Press Release

Award recognizes Globoforce for vision and commitment to helping build first-ever HCM operating system for ADP Marketplace

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. and DUBLIN, Ireland – April 6, 2016 – Globoforce® (www.workhuman.com), a leading provider of social recognition solutions, today announced it was an inaugural recipient of the Trailblazer award from ADP (NASDAQ: ADP), a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions. The award* was given to Globoforce for its vision, innovation and commitment to helping ADP build the HCM operating system for ADP Marketplace, an award-winning cloud-based app marketplace for the HCM industry. The award is the result of a strategic alliance between Globoforce and ADP announced in October 2014 that includes ADP Marketplace, sales referrals, and solution integration. In partnering with ADP, Globoforce has created an integrated solution that is rapidly deployed and easily aligned with other human capital applications. “Globoforce is well-deserving of the Trailblazer award, as they are an exceptional partner, and exemplify day in and day out why they are a leader in the HCM industry,” said Don Weinstein, chief strategy officer for ADP. “Globoforce pioneered the concept of social recognition, which is one of the fastest growing markets in HR today, and is a valuable addition to the ADP Marketplace.” The ADP integration connector allows shared customers of ADP and Globoforce to securely link employee data between ADP’s Workforce Now or Vantage solution and Globoforce’s social recognition solution. Globoforce uses the connector to increase employee engagement and identify areas of excellence through its social recognition platform, while also building program eligibility and enforcing award approval rules. ADP’s Trailblazer award recognizes partners who have:
  • Exemplified the true spirit of partnership through great collaboration across IT, marketing, business development and relationship management;
  • Identified opportunities to maximize ADP and Globoforce’s mutual clients’ satisfaction in fully integrating at least one of their solutions and driving transactions on ADP Marketplace;
  • Worked collaboratively in developing a solution that is easy for ADP clients to adopt from ADP Marketplace;
  • Invested in achieving a long-term vision and strategy for success on the ADP Marketplace.
“We are honored to be recognized by ADP for our work on ADP Marketplace,” said Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce. “Since we began our partnership with ADP almost two years ago, we have witnessed firsthand how ADP lives its values of innovation, and how ADP’s customers experience the value of social recognition. We are incredibly proud to have contributed to the continued success of ADP Marketplace, and look forward to our future work together.” *The Trailblazer award was given to Globoforce March 15, 2016, at ADP’s Meeting of the Minds client conference in Washington D.C.
