Halogen Releases Flexible Talent Management Solution to Meet the Needs of Today's Workforce

Latest version of award-winning TalentSpace solution delivers new usability, making it easier to coach and develop people

Chicago, IL - April 24, 2017 - Halogen Software (TSX: HGN) announced today at the 2017 SHRM Talent Management Conference & Exposition (Booth 236) powerful new capabilities in the latest release of Halogen TalentSpace™.

Halogen's new, intuitive home page dashboard puts employee goals, development, and feedback front and center, providing HR professionals the ability to equip everyone in their organization with the tools and resources to perform to their potential.

People's expectations of work are changing. Bersin by Deloitte's report entitled, "Predictions for 2017: Everything Is Becoming Digital", notes that organizational design and a focus on essential human skills will challenge human resources (HR) leaders to rethink how to lead, engage, and develop employees[1]. This represents a shift in the employer-employee relationship that increases the importance of people and team needs as a driver of competitive advantage.

"Our mission at Halogen is to bring out the best in people and teams. Halogen TalentSpace is the most flexible performance solution for talent management and we've designed it to specifically address shifting requirements for organizations trying to help people be the best they can be at work," says Karen Williams, Chief Product Officer at Halogen Software. "This release makes it easier than ever before to connect everyone in an organization, from leaders to managers to teams to individuals, so each person is working towards achieving the goals that matter."

For organizations looking to take advantage of the changing expectations of people and their experience of work, Halogen TalentSpace offers the ability to:

Quickly and easily create best practice, flexible performance management programs: HR can meet the changing needs of their workforce and transition to an ongoing and more engaging performance program with a variety of pre-configured form templates and best practice workflows. Forms and processes can be adopted to meet the needs of any business, its performance priorities, and the needs of employees. Key performance data can be easily managed and reported on to provide business leaders with an accurate snapshot of organizational health and performance.

Engage employees with a new, intuitive home page user experience: Halogen's responsive home page user interface groups and displays open tasks, goals, development plans, learning assignments, and recent feedback received. Employees can update any goals and development plans, share feedback and recognition, view their team connections, search for colleagues across the organization, access shortcuts and any additional resources from their personalized home screen.

Give and receive feedback and coaching anytime, anywhere: Allows employees to give and receive feedback from any device. Tips and suggestions prompt employees to share and all items collected in the Halogen system and can be incorporated into performance, coaching and development conversations and reviews.

Build on a talent management platform that can grow with you: Organizations can more easily connect and extend Halogen's best-in-class performance platform to other key solutions of choice, and take the right next step in its talent management journey with Halogen's additional capabilities.

"Halogen helps our employees to stay on top of goal progress, remember to give feedback for a job well done, and to focus on the right development activities," says Linda Cataldo, HR Director at Cambridge Systematics. "The solution's people-centric design supports our organization in creating a culture of continuous improvement, innovation and long-term success. We're pleased to have Halogen as our partner. Halogen's focus on continuous advancement helps us take full advantage of the technology and get the most out of our talent management strategies."

"This release is an important step towards helping our customers achieve their vision for talent management so they can meet the changing needs of people and their experience of work," says Williams, "TalentSpace reflects the insights drawn from working with thousands of our customers and the changing workforce dynamics happening throughout the world. Every organization is unique and our solution is an expandable platform that allows HR and business leaders to take the right next step in their talent management journey so people can continuously grow and develop, and get more out of what they do."
