HCL Technologies, a global IT services provider has partnered with LinkedIn to launch an application aimed at encouraging users to go above and beyond the scope of their existing contracts. The application, which will launch globally in English, German and French, will highlight the changing nature of business engagements as part of the first stage of a global campaign aimed at encouraging more employees and businesses to build a 'Relationship Beyond the Contract'.
The web-based application, which is accessible via Linkedln's APIs and InMail feature, is aimed at encouraging users to go the extra mile by allowing them to log in and acknowledge professional relationships that they feel have gone beyond the contract. Users can access the app to add a personalized note of appreciation to their contacts which the recipient can then view, download and print.
