As CEO of Globoforce, Eric has been directing the path of Globoforce as the innovator in the recognition industry since the company’s beginning. His vision to raise employee recognition from a tactical, unmeasured, and under-valued effort to a global strategic program with clear measures for performance and success is now being realized in some of the world’s largest and most complex organizations. Eric’s work has been published in such publications as Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Forbes, and Fortune, and he has also presented at industry and investment conferences around the world. He is the author of The Crowdsourced Performance Review and the co-author of the critically-acclaimed books Winning with a Culture of Recognition and The Power of Thanks. In June 2015, Eric and Globoforce launched a first-of-its-kind conference, WorkHuman: Unlock the Future of The Human Workplace, created to help business and HR leaders build a humanity-focused workplace culture. WorkHuman 2017 is taking place in Phoenix, Arizona May 30-June 1, 2017.
