Re-imagining the potential of recognition

Twenty years ago, recognition was a pat on the back and an engraved plaque. But since 1999, Globoforce has led the industry step by step into a thoughtful reimagining of what it means to be grateful and the power implicit in recognition data.

We have focused our efforts in two centers of excellence:

  • Inspiring employee behavior for a direct and measurable impact on business results
  • Providing managers and leaders with real-time insights to drive talent and culture management

No other recognition solution is as closely tied to our customers’ HCM strategies, because no other recognition provider is so focused on thought leadership and consistently raising the bar for what recognition can do.


The Work Human Research Institute at Globoforce is dedicated to the understanding and application of global workplace practices that create more engaged, productive, and ultimately more human work cultures. In collaboration with leaders in the human resource industry and global research experts, The Work Human Research Institute publishes original research on current trends that affect and influence the employee experience, culture management, and leadership.
