Explaining the appeal of the mobile app, Horizant Managing Partner Wayne Liko said, "GoSpaces offers an amazing way for clients to engage with their employees, from locating a place to meet, to reporting on problems, to influencing their impact on the environment. We are looking forward to bringing this offering to our clients and leveraging the functional synergies of GoSpaces and ARCHIBUS."
GoSpaces works through the use of gamification, in which everyday activities are brought to life using elements of play, like scoring and points. Gamification not only makes activities more fun, it can help individuals or groups achieve real goals. It's based on well-researched neuroscience showing that incremental feedback works better to keep people motivated.
Forward-thinking companies are looking for new ways to both engage employees and adapt to their needs. Remote work and flexible work spaces can add to the challenges of keeping a team functioning well together.
Underlying these trends is the need to attract and retain top talent - which is an ongoing challenge for most organizations. It was the top concern reported by multinational CEOs in both the McKinsey 2016 and the 2018 Conference Board surveys. The Verdantix Global Survey 2018: Space And Workplace Management Software Trends 2019-2021 report also found that "supporting occupant comfort and well being is the top priority in 2019".
"We are very excited to announce a partnership with Horizant," said Jack Gulas, GoSpaces CEO. "Their extensive experience and expertise in the domains of corporate real estate and workplace management coupled with the employee engagement features of GoSpaces will provide a total solution for organizations looking to advance corporate initiatives, sustainability, modernize workplace solutions, and employee wellness."
"Horizant and GoSpaces have been working with like-minded clients and see a synergy to bring unified solutions to existing and new clients across North America," agreed Liko.
Horizant will not only offer GoSpaces to clients, there also plans to start using the app internally. Said Liko, "The Horizant team is anxious to onboard the solution and start challenging each other's behaviour around people, planet and profit."
