Cornerstone Healthcare Group is Using the Halogen Suite to Develop a Strong Talent Pipeline

Texas-based hospital system uses the Halogen talent management solution to align its workforce and identify and develop its next generation of leaders

Ottawa, ON - March 11, 2014 - Cornerstone Healthcare Group has selected the Halogen TalentSpace™ Suite for Healthcare to build a strong talent pipeline and position itself for future growth. With 19 hospitals spread across six states and plans for further expansion, the Texas-based hospital system is leveraging the Halogen suite to support its talent management goals and drive its leadership development strategy.

"We are using the Halogen suite to evaluate our current talent base, identify potential future leaders and create targeted development plans for these employees," says Melanee Landry, Corporate Manager of Talent Management at Cornerstone Healthcare Group. "The suite will also help us to more easily identify under performers who are in need of coaching."

According to the 2012 Healthcare Talent Management Survey1 by Dr. Kevin Groves at Pepperdine University, healthcare organizations that implement a set of best practices - including developing a leadership development culture - realize increased employee productivity and patient satisfaction, and lower nursing turnover. The Halogen suite is helping Cornerstone Healthcare Group improve organizational alignment to ensure the organization's long-term success.

"I've been very impressed with the Halogen suite. It's providing a more efficient way to execute and drive our talent management initiatives, and ensure our people are working on the right things. This is helping us to foster accountability for goals and make certain we have the talent and leadership necessary to grow successfully," says David Smith, President of Cornerstone Healthcare Group.

To date, Cornerstone Healthcare Group has implemented the Halogen eAppraisal™ Healthcare, Halogen eSuccession™ and Halogen eCompensation™ modules.

The Halogen TalentSpace Suite for Healthcare is designed to help healthcare facilities build high performing teams with the right skills, knowledge and competencies to deliver quality patient care. The Halogen eAppraisal Healthcare module is designed to meet the specific talent management needs of health care providers, and has earned the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association for employee performance management.
