Manatee County Sheriff's Office Selects Halogen Software to Support Ongoing Performance Management

Law enforcement agency uses Halogen to develop a culture of continuous feedback

Ottawa - September 22, 2016 - Halogen Software (TSX: HGN) announced today that the Manatee County Sheriff's Office is using the Halogen Performance™ solution to optimize ongoing performance management, improving how feedback is shared among staff and providing greater transparency to the process.

Based in Bradenton, Florida, the Manatee County Sheriff's Office employs approximately 1,200 certified law enforcement and civilian employees. The agency also operates out of multiple facilities and patrol districts, which makes it challenging for employees and their supervisors to regularly share feedback and talk about performance.

"It's important for our employees to understand how they are doing and progressing with their goals and development plans, even if they can't always meet with their supervisors face-to-face," says Carol Laudicina, Human Resources Director, Manatee County Sheriff's Office. "By using Halogen, we've gained better insight into exactly how employees are keeping up with their goals and personal development. This insight enables us to proactively support employee performance on an ongoing basis by providing supervisors with the resources they need to enable employee success."

To help improve the communication between staff, the law enforcement agency uses the Halogen Performance solution to capture in-the-moment coaching tips, feedback, and recognition about performance.

"Halogen has been great for our entire staff, especially for our patrol officers who aren't at a desk all day and supervisors who are on different shifts than some of their team members," says Laudicina. "Our staff can easily convert emails into feedback entries and share this information anytime and from any location. Using Halogen has led to greater transparency in the employee performance evaluation process."

A part of the Halogen TalentSpace™ suite, Halogen Performance helps organizations customize performance processes to fit the needs of their people and their business. From easily capturing and sharing journal notes to support coaching and feedback, to integrated development plans - the solution offers flexible tools to help organizations drive higher employee performance.
