Workhuman Announces 150 New Jobs as Part of Major €4M Expansion of Dublin Headquarters

Globoforce fully transforms into Workhuman to capitalise on market

DUBLIN & FRAMINGHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Workhuman® (formerly Globoforce), the Irish technology firm,
has today announced a major expansion of its operations with the
creation of 150 new jobs and the opening of its newly expanded €4M
headquarters in Dublin. After many years of championing the importance
and value of making workplaces more human, the company has also
announced that it has rebranded as Workhuman. This transformation
acknowledges both the effectiveness and traction of its Workhuman®
Cloud platform and the acute demand from progressive global
organisations seeking to motivate and empower their people to do the
best work of their lives.

Headquartered in Dublin and Massachusetts, USA, Workhuman is the world’s
fastest growing integrated Social Recognition® and continuous
performance management platform. The company has helped some of
the world’s biggest organisations use gratitude to connect their people
and culture to a shared purpose, including LinkedIn, Symantec Corp.,
Cisco, Eaton, Baker Hughes, Intuit, and The Hershey Company. Today, four
million people around the world are on the platform across 160 countries.

The new 150 highly-skilled roles to be filled over the next three years
will be in the fields of technology, finance, HR, product, eCommerce,
and operations. The Dublin office is core to Workhuman’s product
development with its Irish-based technology teams driving and owning the
design and development of the cloud software creation. Workhuman has
invested more than $60 million in research and development over the last
five years to bring new innovations to its award‐winning technology
platform. The company currently employs more than 500 people globally,
with 270 working in Dublin. Workhuman has also been named a Great Place
to Work in Ireland for six consecutive years.

Dublin native Eric Mosley, co-founder and CEO of Workhuman, said: “Our
major expansion of operations demonstrates the incredible demand for our
Workhuman Cloud platform and underlines our commitment to Ireland into
the long-term. We created the market category of social recognition to
help global organisations align their people and culture to a shared
purpose. Now, 20 years on from our founding, we are helping shape the
future of work with the emerging human applications category. Making
work more human has always been our mission and now we’re thrilled to
announce the natural evolution of Workhuman as the name of our company.”

With this €4M investment, Workhuman has fully taken over an entire block
at Park West Business Park in Dublin 12. The newly expanded headquarters
features interactive digital walls, flexi desks with the option to stand
while working, collaboration spaces, training, wellness and relaxation
rooms for onsite exercise classes, as well as a top floor innovation hub
with panoramic city views. The new space is a physical manifestation of
the aim to create an environment where people can do their best work.
Collaborating with leading workplace designers, the office is designed
to meet many diverse work styles and people needs.

Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD,
said: “Workhuman’s announcement of 150 new jobs is a great example of a
highly innovative Irish company that is making great strides globally
while investing in its Irish headquarters for the long-term. The
investment by the company in R&D and product development at its Park
West base is a further boost to Ireland’s booming indigenous tech
sector, and I am delighted that the Government can support its
operations through Enterprise Ireland.”

Julie Sinnamon, CEO, Enterprise Ireland, said: “We have been
working with Eric and the team in Workhuman from the beginning.
Workhuman is one of the world’s fastest-growing performance management
platforms for industry and is the perfect illustration of an Irish
technology company with global ambition. Our aim is to help more Irish
companies like Workhuman to compete and win sustained business in
overseas markets. Enterprise Ireland looks forward to working with the
team to continue to support their growth ambitions as they expand their
reach even further in global markets, strengthening their customer base
internationally and continuing to create jobs here in Ireland.”
