Peoplefluent Delivers New Gamification Strategy to Increase Organizational Engagement, Collaboration, Creativity and Learning

Company Unveils Two New Human Resources Games on the iPad at HR Technology® Conference and Expo

RALEIGH, NC and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - Peoplefluent™, offering a unique combination of best-of-breed mobile and SaaS suite solutions for Talent Management, Vendor Management and Workforce Compliance and Diversity, today unveiled two new Human Resources Games at HR Technology® Conference and Expo. The games, Talentastic and HR Ladder, introduce the creative power of gaming to Peoplefluent's commitment to increasing engagement, collaboration, creativity and learning across the organization by weaving innovation and interactivity throughout its full suite of Talent Management applications.

As a market leader, Peoplefluent is transforming the ways in which businesses deploy and employees use Talent Management applications. The Company's market-changing technology advances are delivered through its mobile strategy that was announced earlier this year and is now coupled with its gamification initiatives announced today.

Charles Jones, Chairman and CEO of Peoplefluent, commented, "The design is the strategy. Creating intuitive and emotionally engaging experiences that connect our users with their work environments -- and the many employees within them -- is the goal. By enabling increasingly dynamic and fun technology interactions, we are connecting individuals and traditional Talent Management processes in a new way to enable and encourage learning, collaboration, best practices and better outcomes for both the individual and the business."

Peoplefluent will be embedding social technologies and game mechanics, such as leader boards and training games, into every application across its broad Talent Management and Workforce Analytics suites. By engaging employees through problem-solving, social and collaborative elements, and with non-hierarchical participation, companies can ignite the creativity, enthusiasm and involvement of people throughout their workforces. New levels of participation will help organizations communicate differently on key workforce topics, concepts and issues that drive performance and business success.

Building excitement around its newest gamification strategy, Peoplefluent debuts its "Game On" theme and product line this week at the HR Technology® Conference and Expo in Las Vegas. With Talentastic, players build a highly productive company using a combination of morale boosters, quality talent acquisition choices and other performance-boosting options. With HR Ladder, players overcome career obstacles to become the Head of a Human Resources organization.

To experience first-hand early examples of Peoplefluent gamification initiatives infused in its existing product offerings, visit the "Awesome New Technologies for HR" session at the conference. Peoplefluent Workforce Explorer, which was selected from a field of more than 60 entrants for one of six coveted presentation slots, is an iPad® application that enables executives, managers and HR to manage talent in an accurate and highly visual manner. Workforce Explorer is part of Peoplefluent's comprehensive "Fluency on the Move" product suite.

Peoplefluent invites conference attendees to play Talentastic and HR Ladder throughout the event in Peoplefluent's booth no. 707. The games will also be available through download on iTunes by the end of the month.
