“Every company can truly benefit from embracing enterprise social media to enable talent management and workforce mobility. Employee retention, loyalty and engagement are critical to the success of any organization, but first you have to make your employees believe their careers are important to you. That’s where UpMo comes in,” said Rob Garcia, VP of Product at UpMo. “UpMo’s social technology empowers employees to fulfill their own professional destiny by building a career path and find — and be found for — opportunities that further their goals.”
“We are honored to be the recipients of this year’s TekTonic Award and be placed in the same category as LinkedIn, which won this award last year,” continued Garcia. “More than ever, our team is committed to building innovative technology that fosters lasting relationships with and among employees.”
After launching its Social Talent Engine in January 2012, UpMo has built incredible momentum, deploying multiple Fortune 500 companies as customers, receiving various awards and becoming a thought leading vendor in the HR technology space.
