The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2016-10-18T23:57:57Z Performance Management in the Palm of Your Hand: PageUp Introduces Everyday Performance App 2016-10-18T23:57:57Z performance-management-in-the-palm-of-your-hand-pageup-introduces-everyday-performance-app MELBOURNE, Australia (October 19, 2016) -- PageUp, a leading global Talent Management Software provider, is shaking up performance management with the launch of its Everyday Performance App, announced today. The new mobile app provides a modern platform for managers and employees to easily log goals and achievements and share feedback in real time, helping companies inspire the best performance from their teams all year round and meeting the needs of an increasingly mobile-enabled workforce.  “As more and more businesses seek to reinvent performance management, they’re looking to complement the annual review with systems that provide instant, real-time feedback every day,” said Fiona Moreton, Global Head of Product Strategy for PageUp. “Addressing this need, PageUp developed our Everyday Performance App to provide managers with a smarter way of sharing feedback and success directly with employees, and for employees to better track and share their own goals and achievements.”  “As PageUp continues to introduce technology people love to use, this latest innovation makes managing your own performance, as an employee, as easy as posting a status update to Facebook. It aims to help businesses re-engage people in the performance management process, ultimately resulting in improved performance outcomes,” said Moreton.  The need for a new approach to performance management is clear; managers often have limited time to commit to the process, employees are not always aligned with the objectives set for them and existing performance management systems often fail to engage users to drive everyday performance. Moreover, a recent PwC Survey found nearly 70 percent of companies see line managers not prioritising performance management conversations and feedback as an issue in their organisations. PageUp’s Everyday Performance App was developed to address the challenges of performance management, delivering a mobile app that can run alongside any type of performance management process, structured or not.  The app collects the feedback and daily interactions that would be impossible for managers and employees to recall when sitting down for a formal review. By capturing dialogues between an employee and their manager, and requesting feedback from peers, direct reports and anyone else in the business that may be observing or sharing in an individual’s success, managers can now deliver fairer and more comprehensive feedback to help their teams improve. Available in two different views – for employees and managers – the Everyday Performance App facilitates a more transparent and continuous performance management process.  Key features of the PageUp Everyday Performance App include:  ●     Easy access to performance objectives: Employees can easily access their own objectives, and managers can view those of their direct reports from an intuitive mobile app. Through direct access to an employee’s objectives and sharable employee journals to keep track of feedback and actions, managers can easily view the journals of their teams and gain insight into how they are progressing toward objectives. ●     Social capabilities: Employees can share their success by tagging other employees and their managers in their journal entries, helping them further align to objectives. Users can also take selfies as photographic evidence of their success and include them in their journals. ●     Timely feedback: Employees that have frequent feedback are more aligned, engaged and likely to be successful, yet many managers are challenged to provide timely feedback to employees on their progress. The Everyday Performance App enables them to share feedback directly with employees in real-time via the app, or save feedback for direct communication during a one-on-one catch-up discussion. ●     Continuous performance management: Rather than being limited to annual or semi-annual events, the Everyday Performance App allows employees and managers to track and discuss feedback throughout the year. As a result, performance can be evaluated more thoroughly, allowing for a more accurate appraisal and helping employees continually improve.

The future of work is changing, technology is reshaping the way we live our lives, and today’s HR professionals face enormous challenges, from ensuring their companies have access to the talent needed to drive organisational objectives, to developing and engaging their future leaders. Talent Lab was established to address these obstacles, leveraging the thought leadership of PageUp’s own talent management experts, prominent HR executives from leading Australian and global organisations, industry analysts and subject matter experts. Karen Cariss, CEO and Co-Founder of PageUp, said the company has a long-standing commitment to thought-leadership in the talent management space, and Talent Lab provides an opportunity to shake up the industry by asking some tough questions in an increasingly disruptive business environment. “The combination of new attitudes about work, shifting business priorities and ever-evolving science and technology will only continue to change how work is done and will require that companies evolve their HR strategies to keep pace,” Cariss said. “The aim of Talent Lab is to encourage HR to think innovatively about meeting the challenges of tomorrow, dissect global best practices and challenge the status quo via a series of interviews, blog posts, videos and discussion forums bringing together the views of HRDs from some of the nation’s leading brands,” she said.

Talent Lab was the logical progression for us to tune into the conversation in a way that would be meaningful to other HR Directors, whilst enabling organisations to get their best people doing their best work,” Cariss said. Talent Lab is spearheaded by Sylvia Vorhauser-Smith, Senior Vice President, Global Research at PageUp. A leading expert in the fields of neuroscience, psychology and human capital management, she has more than 25 years of experience in corporate and entrepreneurial business environments and is a highly regarded international speaker on these topics and more. Along with Cariss, Vorhauser-Smith is the co-author of two books, Talented Southeast Asia and Talented Philippines, both highlighting how companies can achieve successful talent management across international borders. “The future will bring unprecedented challenges and a complete paradigm shift across the entire business landscape. HR must be ready to tackle these obstacles head on,” said Vorhauser-Smith. “We established Talent Lab to ask the thought-provoking questions HR professionals will need to address in the coming years, and share the latest insights from across the talent management realm to find the answers. Our mission is to keep Talent Lab at the forefront of the global discussion on the future of work and explore how HR can ensure a successful path forward,” she added. The first question Talent Lab asks is: ‘In a hyper-connected world, is HR disconnected?‘ Additional information about Talent Lab and its industry-leading insights into the future of HR, the future of work, and HR technology and science can be accessed at: www.hrtalentlab.com.

PageUp Finds Employers in Hong Kong Unprepared to Deliver Mobile Recruiting Experience 2015-06-03T21:21:42Z pageup-finds-employers-in-hong-kong-unprepared-to-deliver-mobile-recruiting-experience MELBOURNE, SYDNEY, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG and KUALA LUMPUR (June 4, 2015) – New research released today by multinational Talent Management Software provider, PageUp, reveals a significant lag in how top employers in Hong Kong are meeting demand among job candidates for a seamless, mobile application experience. Hong Kong currently leads the world in mobile phone penetration, with an adoption rate of 237 percent. It also leads the rest of Asia in terms of smartphone use, which individuals leverage for shopping, entertainment, social networking and, increasingly, to search for and apply to jobs. Despite this growing use of smartphones among jobseekers, many employers in Hong Kong have been slow to address this trend and deliver a mobile-optimised recruiting strategy. The result is that today’s employers are diminishing their chances of hiring the best talent, as many candidates will not apply to a position if they are unable to do so on their mobile devices. In the new white paper, “Mobilise Now: Hong Kong,” PageUp draws on its research into the recruiting practices of 50 of the largest companies in Hong Kong to identify how these employers are keeping pace with the growing use of mobile devices in the job search. Overall, PageUp found that a large majority, 70 percent, of the companies studied do not have a mobile-optimised career site, and 58 percent of career sites across Hong Kong lack a mobile-enabled online application process. This presents several challenges, as employers that fail to offer a streamlined, mobile-enabled recruiting experience will struggle to attract and ultimately hire the best talent possible. PageUp’s research explores the challenges for employers in Hong Kong, identifying significant missed opportunities to enhance their recruiting practices to meet the needs of today’s jobseekers. Key findings include: ·         Whilst 80 percent of career sites studied provide candidates with a positive search experience, nearly two-thirds of companies do not allow candidates to submit an application from their mobile devices. ·         ·       Only 6 percent of Hong Kong’s largest companies use social referrals to reach untapped talent, and the same amount provide job seekers with the ability to receive job alerts, missing the opportunity to engage with passive candidates. ·         ·      The vast majority, 96 percent, of career sites lack the ability to pre-populate application forms from social media or resumes. As more than a third of job seekers will not complete an online application if the process is too much of a hassle, companies may be turning a great number of candidates away. ·        ·     Overall, 12 percent of career sites had an online apply process that was incompatible with a mobile device, and 6 percent of companies studied halve their candidate pool inadvertently by not being compatible with iOS devices. Through Android devices are in favour in Hong Kong, these companies are still alienating a large portion of the talent pool using Apple devices. “As smartphone and tablet adoption continues to grow in Hong Kong, simply offering a mobile-accessible site is not enough; companies must adopt the technology solutions that enable them to deliver a seamless, mobile-optimised recruiting process,” said Karen Cariss, CEO and co-founder of PageUp. “Our research shows a significant gap between what candidates expect from the recruiting experience and what companies can deliver. However, the companies that understand the importance of providing a mobile recruiting experience, and seek to transform their technology platform accordingly, will gain a significant competitive advantage in hiring top talent in Hong Kong,” she said. The PageUp Research White Paper “Mobilise Now: Hong Kong” is available for complimentary download and can be accessed from the research section of the PageUp website: www.pageuppeople.com/research.

Findings indicate 90 percent of companies surveyed do not have a mobile-optimised career site, despite rapid mobile adoption in the region, signalling a gap between candidate expectations and employers’ mobile recruitment strategies.  Smartphone penetration is driving the need for mobile-optimised recruiting strategies. Mobile device use in Southeast Asia has skyrocketed, with as much as 87 percent of the population of Singapore, and 80 percent in Malaysia, using smartphones. Mobile device ownership in the region is higher than the global average, as many individuals have skipped over the desktop computer and moved straight to mobile device ownership. As mobile devices continue to serve as the sole source of internet access for a large portion of the population, job candidates throughout Southeast Asia increasingly rely on those devices in their job search activities.  Despite the growing use of mobile technology, PageUp’s findings highlight that many companies have been slow to address this shift in their talent acquisition strategies, missing a significant opportunity to meet candidate expectations for a streamlined, mobile-optimised application process.  Key findings from the research reveal: ●     The vast majority, 90 percent, of companies do not have a mobile-optimised career site. Given 25 percent of job seekers will not apply for a job if a company’s career site is not mobile-optimised, companies are turning away a large number of potential candidates. ●     For 40 percent of companies surveyed, applying for jobs on the go is not an option for candidates – career sites had no mobile-enabled online application process. ●     Only 10 percent of Southeast Asian companies allow candidates to share a job via social media, despite the region having the highest social media penetration globally. Even fewer (6 percent) provide job seekers with the ability to receive job alerts, representing another missed opportunity in engaging talent through their mobile devices. ●     98 percent do not provide the ability to pre-populate application forms using social media profiles or resumes, creating additional burden that can result in candidates dropping out of the application process. “Our research shows a significant gap in the adoption of mobile technology between job candidates and Southeast Asia’s biggest companies. Job seekers expect a significantly better mobile job search and application experience than employers are currently providing,” said Karen Cariss, CEO and co-founder, PageUp. “These findings should spur employers in the region to act now and develop robust mobile recruiting strategies to address this new reality. Hiring talent will only become more competitive across Southeast Asia in the future and a mobile-optimised approach to talent acquisition is key to hiring success,” Cariss added.

Following the success of Talented Southeast Asia, PageUp’s extensive research into people management practices across the region, the company’s latest book provides an in-depth look at the unique opportunities and challenges encountered by employers and employees in the Philippines. As the Filipino population itself is often regarded as the nation’s most high potential asset, human capital is of critical importance – not only to the success of individual companies operating there, but also to the country as a whole. Amid the paradox of poverty and wealth, tradition and innovation, past and future, the Philippines presents immense opportunities for business growth. However, the challenges facing businesses, whether local companies headquartered in the country or multinational corporations looking to leverage its qualified workforce, are formidable. “With a strong economic foundation, a robust supply of business process outsourcing services and a youthful population rallying for change and opportunities, it is no wonder that the Philippines has become the go-to destination for companies expanding to Southeast Asia,” said Karen Cariss, CEO and co-founder of PageUp and co-author of the book. “But the country can present some obstacles for those not familiar with the intricacies, cultural nuances and expectations of its workforce, driving the need for a resource like Talented Philippines to help guide their efforts and ensure success.”  Talented Philippineswas created to address the critical business and HR issues impacting the Philippines today as the country continues to transform. Based on the responses of more than 650 business and HR practitioners at the forefront of HR innovation, thought leadership and implementation in the country, the book explores the people management priorities across small, medium and large enterprises operating in the Philippines. Combined with numerous case studies that highlight the experiences of leading organisations and insight from a wide cross-section of public and private sector enterprises, Talented Philippines offers global best practices for multinational companies looking to leverage the great promise of this flourishing nation and its talented workforce. “The Philippines is home to some of the most promising human talent in the world, and organisations have much to gain by leveraging the power of its growing workforce,” said Sylvia Vorhauser-Smith, PageUp’s Senior Vice President of Global Research and co-author of the book. “Through our research, surveys and interviews, we aimed to unlock the secrets to people management in this vibrant country and help companies attract, retain and maximise the performance of their Filipino employees.” Vorhauser-Smith continued, “Just as Talented Southeast Asia was the first book of its kind to take a deep look into people management best practices in the region, we shared a similar goal with Talented Philippines – to provide the insight needed to ensure an effective human capital strategy in the country during a time of enormous change and transformation.” Talented Philippines will be available for purchase in April 2015 from Amazon.com.

New Study from PageUp Finds Australia’s Top Employers Too Slow to Embrace Mobile Technology in Recruitment 2015-02-25T02:48:29Z new-study-from-pageup-finds-australia-s-top-employers-too-slow-to-embrace-mobile-technology-in-recruitment SYDNEY, MELBOURNE, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, NEW YORK and LONDON (February 25, 2015) -- PageUp, a leading Multinational Talent Management Software provider, today announced the release of its latest white paper, “Mobilise Now Australia: Are Australia’s Top 100 Company Career Sites Ready?” As today’s job seekers increasingly want to search and apply for jobs on their mobile devices, this landmark research explores how prepared Australia’s top employers are to meet this growing demand for a fully mobile-optimised candidate experience. Hiring the qualified talent an organisation needs to be successful and remain competitive continues to be a struggle for many companies. And although the advent of social media and mobile devices have ushered in a new era of talent acquisition, providing new avenues and methods for connecting with candidates, many organisations are challenged to attain the adequate technology and use it effectively. At a time when candidates have embraced these developments, with two-thirds of job seekers currently using their mobile devices to search for jobs, the need for employers to provide an end-to-end mobile-optimised application process is a pressing one. The consequences for organisations that fail to adapt their career sites and apply processes for the new mobile reality will be at a serious disadvantage. Research from LinkedIn shows that 25 percent of job seekers will not apply for a job if the company’s career site is not mobile optimised. To better understand the lag between job seeker demand and the execution of employer mobile strategies, PageUp studied the career sites of Australia’s 100 largest companies. Key findings of this research include: -Overall, nearly 40 percent of career sites studies provided a poor search experience and more than one-quarter had no online application process. These companies have effectively taken themselves out of the race to secure talent. ·        -Nearly three-quarters of Australia’s largest companies lack mobile-optimised career sites and approximately two-thirds of career sites only have basic functionality. ·         -Only half of the top 100 companies use social referrals to reach untapped talent, and only 40 percent enable job seekers to receive job alerts. This represents a missed opportunity to engage candidates and maximise their talent pipelines. ·        - Less than half of the career sites (45 percent) allow candidates to pre-populate their application form from social media profiles and resumes, which can significantly speed up the process. ·         -More than a quarter of companies (29 percent) inadvertently reduce their candidate pool by half because their career site is not compatible with iOS devices, such as iPads and iPhones. ·         -Only one-third of career sites can tap the entire talent pool by allowing candidates to attach resumes from cloud storage – a unique vendor-specific functionality offered by PageUp ensuring candidates can apply regardless of which device they use. “As job seeker behaviour continues to evolve with the technology, employers must be able to keep up as well; those that place a low priority on creating a mobile-friendly recruitment experience will lose the competition for top talent,” said Simon Cariss, CIO of PageUp. “As our research shows, simply enabling job seekers to apply from their devices won’t solve the problem. Employers must make sure they leverage the latest mobile and social technology effectively to deliver a simple, engaging and intuitive apply process from any mobile device.” The PageUp White Paper “Mobilise Now Australia: Are Australia’s Top 100 Company Career Sites Ready?” is now available for complimentary download at: http://www.pageuppeople.com/research_item/mobilise-now-australia/ About PageUp PageUp helps multinational employers strategically align their talent resources to execute corporate strategy across borders, business units, cultures and languages — maximising employee value and business results.

PageUp Appoints Experienced Business Executive Carl Kimball as Vice President, Southeast Asia 2014-11-20T23:33:46Z pageup-appoints-experienced-business-executive-carl-kimball-as-vice-president-southeast-asia SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, SYDNEY, MELBOURNE, NEW YORK and LONDON (November 21, 2014) -- PageUp, a leading Multinational Talent Management Software provider, today announced that seasoned business executive Carl Kimball has joined the company as Vice President, Southeast Asia.
