Globoforce Ranked #1 Employee Recognition Provider

Brown-Wilson Group Survey Respondents Select Globoforce as Top Employee Recognition Outsourcer Worldwide

WESTBOROUGH, MA and DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 19, 2007 -- Globoforce, the leading provider of worldwide employee reward & recognition programs and sales incentive solutions for Global 2000 companies, today announced it has been ranked the No. 1 provider worldwide of employee recognition outsourcing solutions in Brown-Wilson Group's 2006 survey results.

Globoforce's top rank was based on an independent survey conducted by Brown-Wilson Group, a non-profit, outsourcing management consulting firm and author of "The Black Book of Outsourcing." The 2006 research study analyzed over 3500 outsourcing vendors in 27 countries, taking into account validated responses from over 17,000 customers, buyers, contractors, users and employees worldwide.

"As the employee recognition market continues to grow, so does the demand for recognition solutions that motivate workforces worldwide," said Doug Brown, Principal at Brown-Wilson Group. "Globoforce has clearly emerged as the leading player in this market, praised by respondents around the globe for its international capabilities and comprehensive employee recognition solution."

"We are truly honored to be named the leader in employee recognition," said Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce. "It is even more gratifying for us to know that this recognition comes from the people that matter most to us -- our customers, fellow industry experts, and, most of all, employees around the world. We are committed to leading the pack in driving change in the recognition industry and are pleased to see our success acknowledged in the Black Book of Outsourcing rankings."
