Mid-Market Companies Transform Corporate Culture with Halogen Employee Performance and Talent Management Suite

Mid-Market Companies Transform Corporate Culture with Halogen Employee Performance and Talent Management Suite

HCI research study finds numerous benefits to implementing HR technology solutions.

Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) April 16, 2008

Halogen Software Inc. (http://www. halogensoftware. com/), a leading provider of web-based employee performance and talent management software (http://www. halogensoftware. com/products/), today announced that a new study, authored by The Human Capital Institute, illustrates how Halogen’s mid-market customers increase efficiency, improve employee engagement and transform corporate culture surrounding performance. The study profiles three organizations that implemented HR technology solutions to help them grow and keep up with their competition.

“Mid-market enterprises must be focused on their strategic growth and managing continual change. HR departments within these organizations have an opportunity to leverage their knowledge and technology to make a significant difference in company culture and enable positive, dynamic growth,” said HCI analyst and the study’s author Sara Palifka. “In speaking extensively with Halogen customers (http://www. halogensoftware. com/customers/), we found that technology like employee performance appraisal software (http://www. halogensoftware. com/products/halogen-eappraisal/) is an important component of the HR solution which, if leveraged properly, can make a significant difference in the overall success of an organization.”

HCI studied organizations in diverse industries, including Clark Nuber, a 55-year old Certified Public Accounting firm in Bellevue, Washington. As a result of moving to Halogen’s employee performance and talent management system, Clark Nuber’s culture has been transformed. The new review process has helped increase the performance of employees, has instilled confidence in employee confidentiality, and encourages more communication.

“The Halogen system ensures that employees can receive feedback at any point in time. In fact, employees can request on-the-spot reviews and HR will send out an evaluation request within 30-45 minutes to the appropriate parties,” said Tracy White, Clark Nuber’s Director of Human Resources. “It’s really helping our younger generation of employees because they want that instant feedback.”

Halogen’s performance appraisal solution has also increased efficiency for Clark Nuber. “Our former system was Excel - based, and was very time time-intensive. As a result, employees were not receiving reviews in a timely manner,” said White. “With the new paperless system, only a few managers need prompting to get their evaluations completed. And people are happy with a web-based solution because it allows them to work from anywhere.”
