Co-Founder & CEO, Workhuman
Eric is a visionary entrepreneur in the tech space, author, and the force behind the Workhuman® movement – and where we need to go next when it comes to workplace rights.
As CEO and Co-Founder of what began as Globoforce and is now Workhuman, he is leading the charge to dismantle old HR processes and challenge organizations to build new ways to connect the modern workforce. He guides organizations worldwide on how to create more human-centric workplaces that leverage the way people work today, which is around employee development, social connections and relationships, and organizational communities and teams.
As a pioneer of the Workhuman movement, Eric has long believed that recognition and positive reinforcement unleash discretionary energy in employees, inspiring them to do the best work of their lives. Employees achieve their fullest potential when they feel appreciated, connected, and empowered for who they are and what they do.
Eric is the co-author of the newly released book “Making Work Human” and the award-winning book, “The Power of Thanks,” and author of “The Crowdsourced Performance Review.” He is also a regular contributor to The Huffington Post on the topics of recognition and humanity in the workplace, and a frequent contributor to publications including Forbes, Fast Company, and the Harvard Business Review.
