Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) October 4, 2007
Halogen Software Inc., the leading provider of award-winning Web-based employee performance and talent management software today announced it has won the Top Human Resources Product Award from Human Resource Executive® magazine. Halogen eSuccession™ (http://www. halogensoftware. com/products/halogen-esuccession/) was one of 10 HR products recognized for excellence and innovation. For 19 years winners of this award have been chosen by a panel of expert judges as standouts among the highly competitive field of applicants.
HR’s most coveted product awards will be presented on the opening day of the HR Technology® Conference & Expo. This year’s winners made the cut out of nearly 100 applicants. Each year the editorial staff of Human Resource Executive identifies those HR products that provide real value to the HR community. Specifically, judges look for innovative solutions that help HR professionals successfully contribute to their organization's business goals.
"The competition continues to get more competitive as the number of entries grows and the caliber of products escalates," explained David Shadovitz, editor in chief of Human Resource Executive®. "We were very impressed with Halogen eSuccession’s best-practices approach to succession planning. The talent pool model enables organizations to establish a larger number of "promote-able" employees, who are more likely to stay loyal and whose skills are better aligned with an organization’s strategic plans."
In December 2006, Halogen Software launched eSuccession, and it is now a highly-successful part of the Halogen Employee Performance and Talent Management Suite with more than 100 organizations using the solution. This offering is a powerful, yet simple to use succession planning tool focused on addressing the shortcomings of currently available succession planning tools. Halogen’s approach not only follows the new best-practices approach to succession planning – it also takes the complexity and inefficiencies out of the process, enabling users to quickly address immediate and long term workforce requirements.
"This award confirms our fundamental belief that HR professionals want simple-to-use yet powerful tools, that provide a great value to their organizations and help them to achieve business goals," said Paul Loucks, President and CEO of Halogen Software. "We are pleased that our peers and experts in the HR field have formally recognized the value of eSuccession and our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers."
